Sadie Slip Dress - Tessuti Patterns
Hello and welcome!

My name is Julia and I'm a coffee person with a sewing problem.

August 27th, 2009 was the day that I first slouched in front of a sewing machine and sewed two pieces of calico together with a straight stitch.
It was love at first stitch for me, and ever since I have spent all my waking hours fantasising about what I'm going to make next.

Baby Julia circa 2009 wearing my first ever me-made dress, on the day when I first got my own sewing machine! Look at the happiness!

When I'm not sewing like a crazy lady, or hyperventilating in fabric stores, I like to go running, salsa dancing, indulge in a good book, knit and be merry.
