About me: after 3 years of fashion, 6 months of International fashion business at Nottingham Trent to get a PG Cert, I completely changed my career path to become a nurse. With one year of nursing training to go, working as a health care assistant in hospitals and being constantly broke, this challenge has come at the right time to re-use, recycle and remember my sewing skills. Lets see if I still have my creative side!
I've been sewing for as long as I can remember, starting with tiny garments for dolls as a child (with much supervision from Mum) through to my hand stitched lace wedding dress in 2013. I studied Textiles and Design through to A-level but decided not to pursue the fashion route, preferring to keep all of the pleasure of sewing to myself!
Over the last 18 months, or so, I've been sewing roughly three garments per month, so when Bridie invited me to take the challenge it seemed like a great opportunity to do something I love and share the new skills and techniques I learn with others
