My first sewing book: The Beginner’s Guide to Dressmaking, was published by David & Charles in November 2014. Read more about it here and buy your copy here.


I have also written a book about fashion design for children: My Fashion Label, which was published by Ivy Press in August 2014.  You can read more about it here.


I am a regular contributor to Love Sewing magazine; I write a monthly column called “Behind the Seams” across a double page spread.

Occasionally I also contribute editorial and projects to other magazines such as Sew and Simply Sewing.


I wrote 4 popular series for Sewing World magazine between October 2013 and September 2015 on Customising, Finishing Touches, Knits Know-How and Alterations.
