Hi there, I’m Sarah.

I live in the beautiful city of Cape Town with my adorable (yet mischievous) twins Benedict and Freja.

I studied fashion design when I finished school and, although I have never really stopped sewing and making patterns on the side,  somehow life got in the way and I was not able to pursue my passion as a career.

I started this blog as a personal project in an attempt to preserve my sanity when my husband was working abroad and I was living alone with our tiny twins. It served as a much needed creative outlet and distraction from loneliness, laundry and sleep deprivation. I was quickly completely overwhelmed by the love and support that I was shown by the online sewing community and now I can’t imagine my life without you guys!

I’m an office administrator (which is really just a fancy name for a secretary) by day and PDF pattern maker by night. I’m working really hard and dreaming of one day making this my ‘real’ job instead of my side hustle.

Please feel free to write me an e-mail and/or comment. I love hearing from you guys and will do my best to respond as soon as I am able.
