Treasure Hunting for Dressmaking

This month I have finished a dressmaking course and stitched my very first skirt (with a zip!) in a bright turquoise cotton. Now I am looking at all the patterns I have, trying to decide what I want to make next. I have so many lovely fabrics to choose from and I can’t wait to make some dresses for my honeymoon and some presents for my family. So this month’s treasure hunting post is inspired by dressmaking and is filled with some lovely things that would make any sewing project extra special!
