June - Camilla2

Camilla & her gorgeous Day Dress

My name is Camilla – I’m a primary school teacher in Nottinghamshire UK. I have 2 per dogs who I spend lots of time walking in the local fields and forests.

I’ve recently sewn up and blogged about 3 Day Dresses, and I’ve attached a couple of pictures which are taken on a camera rather than my phone. The fabric is a beautiful Liberty lawn which I felt was perfect for early spring. I buy a lot of fabric, from all over the place, but I think Kat’s Fabrics on eBay is the best place for affordable Liberty.

I’ve been sewing for approximately 18 months, and a year ago upgraded to a second hand Elna 6005 which is great. I’ve just decided to start a sewing club at school and ordered two shiny new machines, so am currently busy contemplating lots of exciting new projects that are appropriate for beginner sewists. Generally I’m a fairly selfish sewer; the majority of my makes are dresses for myself. I’m currently naming each dress as per the letters of the alphabet – I’ve currently made and blogged dresses A-F, with my G dress made but not yet photographed or blogged (though worn several times, oops!).
