    Great pattern choices. thanks for sharing ?

  2. Amy Carson says:

    I love your videos and your blog so much! I started teaching myself to sew about two years ago and I always feel inspired when I see your makes.

  3. Tess Mess says:

    Do you just use a sewing machine to make all your clothes?

  4. I love your videos, please keep them coming.
    I did a fashion degree (11 years ago eek) and the final collection traumatised me so much that it took all the enjoyment out of making clothes, so much so that I've only just got my sewing machine back out. But I've made 3 dresses and a top over the past few weeks and bought several of your recommended patterns which I'm itching to try. 
    So thank you for the inspiration, I'm in such a happy place with my sewing again : ) X

    Just found your vlog/podcast and have been binge watching almost all night. What better way to spend the sleepless wee hours of the morning. I am wondering if you use many indie patterns. I discovered indie patterns about a year ago and haven't looked back. A current favorite is the knit Davie dress by Sewaholic patterns (in many different color- and pattern-blocked incarnations for my daughter's summer internship). Other favorite indie pattern companies include Colette, Tilly and the Buttons, Pauline Alice, By Hand London, Deer and Doe, Megan Nielsen, Jennifer Lauren Vintage, Sew Over It and Grainline Studio. -Donna B.

  6. Hi 🙂 I really love all your videos! But I was wondering how do you store/ organise your sewing patterns? I would be interested to see if you've got any tips for us :)

  7. You sew so beautifully, your green dress is my favorite and rust colored skirt! Great job!

  8. All your picks are lovely for spring/summer. I’ve been contemplating getting the Ultimate Trouser. Your Anorak is beautiful, professional and high-end. Thanks for sharing and I hope you had a wonderful day.

  10. LINDA BROWN says:

    Just subscribed today. Have already watched several of your videos.

  11. for the first pattern, have you sewn up the skorts at all?

  12. So inspired by all your makes! I want to make everything you show! ?

  13. Hey Rosabella, what size of 1370 do you sew up? I stupidly tried a 6 because of the finished pattern measurements, and it is ridiculously small. Do you think the sizing is small, normal, or large??
