    hey! you’re an inspiration to me. I am amazed at your work at such a young age… I need help please! WHAT inspires you to sew?

      Thankyou! :D
      I mainly make things because I can’t afford beautiful vintage clothes.. So I just make them instead! That’s very true for corsets, as they can cost well over £100, and I can make one for about £25!
      Going on Burdastyle inspires me to sew, I like seeing what everyone’s making :)

    Where did you get that fabric? I am always hunting in fabric shops for the perfect leopard print stretch and can never find the right balance & love yours to bits!

    You corset is beautifully made. Do you have any pictures of your vintage wear? Do you have any calf length pencil skirts?
