My sewing journey started in 2010 when I purchased some gorgeous fabric from a local kids clothing store that was closing down.  This ignited my fabric obsession, which soon resulted in the purchase of a sewing machine and not long after an overlocker.

I began sewing simple skirts and peasant style dresses for my two young girls.  As my confidence grew, and I’d tackled my fear of zips, buttons and knits, I began sewing more for myself.  I’m now enjoying my selfish sewing and I’m slowing working through all of associated fitting issues with my unique body.  I’m finding this is a great way to be more accepting and comfortable in the body I’ve got!

I’m drawn to independent pattern companies as I often find their instructions, diagrams and/or photos to be a sewing class in an envelope.

I’ve recently purchased a knitting machine, so watch this space…

And the name, which I know makes no sense at all.  Well, I attended a Sewers Meet-Up in Melbourne in August 2012 and I was introducing myself as Blogless Anna.  So when I finally took the leap and started this blog, I thought I’d keep the joke running.
