What's on my sewing table

Hi Guys,

I love sewing, I have dabbled over the years but in our new house I have my own sewing nook & I love spending time in there.

Sewing is always a big help when it comes to how often I change my styles. Not only is it fun making your own clothes, you can make exactly what you want to your own measurements & alter items you already have. I also feel a real sense of pride when someone asks where I got something & I can say I made it.

Much like other sewers I decide & make projects in two ways the first is I see something in a shop or online & I draft a pattern from memory or I use sewing patterns. Both are really good, the pattern because you just follow it step by step which is quick & drafting your own patterns which really stretches my skills.

I was chatting to the lovely people at SimplicityNewlook about my changing style & that I was looking for some patterns to help me create individual pieces, so they kindly sent me some to try.

Now I always feel that the pattern envelopes don't do patterns justice, as they can look a bit dated so keep an open mind about the ones I have chosen (Sorry the pictures are a bit small):

I have already made two of the simplicity 1662 skirts. I have yet to blog about them but they will be coming up soon.

What do you have on your sewing table?

Ciao for now
Love Mrs Berto xx


  1. It's lovely having a designated sewing space and not having to totally clear up each day, you'll be even more productive now!

    1. Yes, I am so much more productive! I have made more items in the last three months than I have in the last couple of years. :)
