Hi! My name is Steph, during the day I’m a mechanical engineer, but outside of work I love to bake & sew.
I’ve been sewing for about 8 or so years now & I spend most of my spare time sewing. The things I enjoy making the most are probably the most frivolous things, pretty dresses & evening gowns, but there are some practical things that I enjoy making, like tailored jackets. Lately I’ve really been enjoying learning about vintage techniques & couture techniques, & applying them in what I make.
I also love baking & cooking for my friends & family. For years I loved baking cakes & making fancy desserts, but recently I’ve become more & more interested in savoury dishes. Who am I kidding – if looks tasty, I want to make it & eat it!
I keep this blog to keep a record of what I’ve made, how I made it, what worked, what didn’t. I hope that others gain some value from the information I post here.
