A quick retrospective

My poor neglected blog. I’ve really missed writing these posts and I’ve got so much I want to catch up on. Like….

The looks I made for the December Sink the Pink Ball. I think there were 20 costumes in all because I like to punish myself.


And all these for TOYS, back in March. I lost count of the trolls, Care Bears, Clowns and cowboys in this.


And June’s Children of The Revolution – many, many children. In many, many looks.

And a few things for myself.

But all that will have to wait because I’m on my way to the Great British Sewing Bee Live to do an alteration challenge in front of people. After that I’ll be spending the evening putting together the remaining costumes for the next show, with an audience of cats judging my stitching.


About Vanessa

Sewing and assorted nonsense. For reasons that escape me, I left the sunshine and beaches of Australia for the crisps and glitter of London in 2001. I now live in the middle of some kind of feline drop-in centre in East London battling for space to make costumes and clothes.

  1. Yay! I’ve missed you! Fantastic work, all of it. What a dream gig!

  2. What beautiful, fun costumes and your pink shaggy fur jacket is the mutts. Sewing Bee sounds like great fun. Good luck in your challenge. Xx

  3. At least you should be a shoe-in for winning the GBSB live–you’ve got tons of practice on making things up on the fly and super fast! 🙂
