In homage to industry I wore a completely memade outfit: Derwent trousers and Winnats tank from my last book Beginner's Guide to Sewing With Knitted Fabrics and denim jacket from my new book out in January 😉📚🧵✂️I've been here @sew_in_the_city again today teaching a lovely student the fun she can have with her overlocker and how to do some simple clothing alterations. 👖👕 If you want to do a Friday dressmaking class with me whatever your level, whatever you want to make even if it's just learning how to use a sewing machine, book in now direct with Kerrie @sew_in_the_city ✂️🧵 I'm wearing a handpainted #peaktshirtdress from my last book Beginner's Guide to Sewing With Knitted Fabrics.
