A round belly and a round cocoon coat
Another blog post! I hope this last hurrah of energy means baby Szabobobo is on her way... I've been meaning to blog my coat since November, but just never got round to it. I've been sewing lots (and not just baby stuff), it's just I never really felt like ...

Dip your toe into shirt dress heaven. Come make the 6696 with me!
Hey peeps! Belly is growing, but I'm still a-sewing. My latest make is another McCall's 6696 . As you know this is my favourite pattern ever and I've already made two versions (if you want to see them click here and here ). The great news is that I will be ...

Two Netties and a Bump
Even though it's been over a month since I last hung out in blogger, I have been sewing and have a bit some overdue makes to share with you all. My recent makes all have a certain thing in common...they stretch(!) as I am now 3 1/2 months pregnant with my f...

How do you like this martini, Mr Bond?
As you all know, Sally from Charity Shop Chic launched her own pattern line last month called Capital Chic . If you haven't checked out the unique and very fashionable range, first...why not? And second, get over there now! I was lucky enough to be asked to...

Drink up folks! There's a new pattern company in town.
Hello everyone! It's been a while since I last blogged because I've been so busy attending the amazing Minerva Meet Up weekend extravaganza, as well as visiting family and friends in Canada. But, I'm back and ready to get sewing and blogging. I have some lo...

I just can't help believin'
That I have met such an amazing bunch of people (& community) through sewing. Yesterday, I thought I was meeting Tania and Sally for a relaxed lunch in Cafe Rouge in Greenwich followed by some wedding make-up shopping for Sally in the afternoon. I even pack...

Sewing for the man. Burda 7045 shirt.
This latest project was promised almost two years ago. I'm that crappy when it comes to sewing for Mr Szabs. On a trip to Berlin, some moons ago, we went to the very cute and candy store-like Frau Tulpe . If you're ever in Berlin, I definitely recommend tak...

Another post, another cocktail dress
I assure you readers, my life is really not fancy enough to warrant
two consecutive cocktail dresses, but you never know when Don rolls in
drunk on Scotch and expects me to seal the deal with Burger Chef. Don, you know
I’m veggie!!! A while back, my boss in...

The Gillian Dress: McCalls 6696 sequel
They say most sequels are never as good as the first film, with exception to the Godfather 2...obviously. So, does the same apply to repeated sewing makes of the same pattern? I think, with the help of the outstanding McCalls 6696, I may have made a Godfath...

Story
Tagline
Dressmaker, animal lover, daydreamer, moon river.
Introduction
I love to sew and buying fabric gets me high. I've been sewing for nearly 10 years and am trained in pattern drafting and design. My influences are both vintage and modern fashion and I am crazy about Elvis, Rod Stewart and a rain-soaked George Peppard. I love animals, am vegetarian and live in London with my awesome husband. 
Bragging rights
I made my wedding dress. See my blog www.sewdixielou.com
