Under Construction

I have only just started this blog, but I hope to start posting more soon, so please check back again soon...


Who am I? Well, I'm Kel. And I'm short - by name, and only mildly by nature. I live in Newcastle, Australia and study Nutrition & Dietetics, but we get so many holidays that I figured I may as well do something constructive with them. So, I decided that I would finally learn how to sew... properly. 

I did a teeny bit of sewing in high school 10 years ago, but since then have only hemmed a few pairs of pants here and there and made some not-so-great pajama pants and simple tops. They were really nothing special, but I love the idea of being able to make clothes that I both like, and that fit me properly. 

While I do have the very basics of sewing down pat, I really have no idea how to fit a garment or alter patterns, and wouldn't even know where to start. But I'm going to... start, that is. So this blog is here to act as a sort of 'journal' of my sewing projects, what I did right, what I would do differently next time and other snippets of things I've learned along the way.

Thanks for checking out my blog, although it's a bit bare at the moment. If you stick with me, I'll try to post more soon as I slowly figure out how to use my sewing machine, my camera, and blogger.


  1. Such a great idea! :-) I would love to learn how to sow. We've been to a tailor recently to get a suit and dress made for a wedding and I was so amazed by what these people can do and create. It's such a great and creative thing to do! I will definitely follow along. Good luck!

    1. Thanks Claudia! It is pretty amazing what some people can make. I did a couple of lessons with a wedding-dress maker, and the things she makes are just soooo gorgeous. I have a long way to go yet, but practice makes perfect... or so they tell me.
