Bloomsbury Square Makes – Trend Patterns “The Cape”

It’s a great time to be sewing! Why?

Well one of the reasons, is the wealth of dressmaking patterns which are available.

It is so easy to find interesting patterns from pretty much anywhere in the world and access them easily via the internet. There is an amazing pool of talent and creativity among the pattern designers. When I need inspiration, I can happily spend a few enjoyable hours online looking for ideas.

The fabric has arrived for a customer’s special order, plus the new black linings. Continue reading Delivery Van Mahem…
