I am Ellie, a hobbyist dressmaker who lives in Edinburgh. I learnt to sew in 2009 through an adult education course which gave me the bug, and since then I have been improving my skills and making some wonderful original clothes, and some other itms which have not worked so well…

I will try my hand at sewing anything, but I paticularly love sewing dresses, as RTW dresses just don’t fit.  My cup floweth over, so I spend quite a bit of time altering pattens to make them fit. I have spent quite a while reading, researching, and experimenting with FBA’s in order to improve the fit of my clothes.

My other major hobby is hillwalking, so I occasionally merge the two and make specialised outdoor clothing.

In 2014 I am getting married, so for the next 6 months my BIG project will be a wedding dress.
