We Sew Retro

Half Term Challenge

I desperately need to make the most of this week to break the back of all the sewing I have to do. I have 3 patterns I want complete by my holiday at the end of July. In addition, I have made my life more complicated by deciding to make my fancy dress outfit for a friend's birthday (as you do), so that's another 2 items to make by the start of July. I also have some school work to do as well, so no pressure.

Have to say though, I absolutely love a challenge: if someone says I can't do something, or something seems impossible, I am suddenly inspired to prove them wrong. Don't know whether this is passion or childishness, but it's served me well enough in life.

As part of adjusting my wardrobe, I have decided to join Creative Miss W in her mission to Make Do & Mend, so please check this out. It's creative, ethical, economical and fun to do.

Ready, steady.......GO!


  1. Hi Helen. Thanks for mentioning my refashion I'm going to have a go at designing a badge for it so you can display it on your blog if you like. Actually your profile doesn't display an email address. would it be possible to send me one? don't worry if you want to keep this private it's just sometimes i might want to get in touch with you about Made Do & Mend wardrobe refashion and it might not always be appropriate to do it in comments.I'd also like to know how you did the hyperlink.Much neater then mine.

  2. Hiya Miss W,
    That sounds like a really good idea, so would definately be up for adding a badge. I don't know why it doesn't show an email actually. I'll have to look into that. My email is maisieday81@aol.com - that's the one I check most anyway.
    I did the link by highlighting the words then clicking the Link button and pasting in your web address.
    Speak soon

  3. Thanks helen. Thanks for explaining how to do the link. that sounds simple enough. will try that next time
