2020 The View From Here

Hi there,

I hope you are safe and well.

I am quite embarrassed by my lack of posting last year. I sewed loads and just couldn’t tackle the job of posting . My computer was a challenge that didn’t seem to be a priority at that time.

I suffered a back injury at the end of 2018 and it has impacted me in many ways. I don’t move as quickly or as smoothly as I once did but I am working hard to try and get back there.

It has not however affected my ability to sew, and creating is my sanity saving strength.

A quick run down of 2019.

I did some work last year in costume.

A short film on location, “The End and The Begininng” Directed by Archie Chew.


A stage play in Sydney.

Also an on stage show   “Anarchy”  in collaboration with Enmore Tafe, A Grecian Goddess was the brief.


I will sort my 2019  makes  for myself and upload later.

For 2020 however I can show you one that I think I will be making a few more of.

The pattern is V9305.






This pattern is great to make a simple design .                I used a lovely viscose fabric  bought from

Pitt Trading an online fabric store 

. It gives this beautiful  soft drape, and to finish the neck edge I bound it with silk organza in pale blue. I forgot to take construction pictures as I was in a hurry to have it ready .  It was  made in November 2019. 

This  garment is a pleasure to wear, cool and comfortable.I hope you and your loved ones are safe and well in this crazy time.

Happy Sewing,

Sue  🙂
