When the dark side meets the garment maker...
... you get some of my favouritest things.  :)  That's great.
I might look as though I'm talking to you, but inside my head I'm sewing.

Stick a Kalvin Klein label in it and you'd pay a small fortune for it 👏

I bought a load of tde grren and blue moda grunge for the bargello in my profile pic. Unfortunately it was a new collection and I had to import it from the US. Then I went a bit mad and decided the whole thing would be moda and imported the lot from mostly new collections. So worth it. I adore moda.

That coat looks absolutely amazing. I always forget people make clothes out of moda and it always looks incredible

Moda Grunge was a pattern from Basic Grey... they were a scrapbook company, the pattern was originally a paper collection. Basic grey no longer make papers they just design fabrics for Moda.

Patchwork doesn't horrify me, quilting does!

I've actually been contemplating 'making' fabric from all my colour-coded bags of scraps...I enjoyed piecing the frills on this skirt together for last year's steampunk wardrobe
