Kia Ora!Untitled

I’m Sophie-Lee, a 25 year old Nelsonian living in Wellington with my husband (Mr Guy), cat Travis, and our three chickens Grunhilda, Pearl and Faucet. I’m a doctor but spend almost all of my free time sewing, or thinking about sewing.

I first learnt how to sew at school with a polyester windsock which I cut a hole in with the overlocker; a layered gathered skirt and a hideous teal shiny skirt with beaded hem trim. Skip forward 5 years and my mother gave me a sewing machine for my 18th birthday. Since then I’ve been learning as I go, making some glorious f**k-ups and some pretty nice outfits.

Since moving to Wellington in November 2012 I have stepped up my sewing significantly, to the point that I can now proudly say I sew almost all of my clothes, and haven’t bought new RTW since June.

I’d love to hear from you, either by commenting on the blog or email me on tworandomwordsblog@gmail.com
