Welcome to So What If I Sew

I’m Jess and So What If I Sew, my blog, instagram and youtube channel, is about sewing, dressmaking and all things stitch-related!

Here I document my sewing journey, new makes, new techniques, sewing fails and my progress as a dressmaker. 

This blog is also about giving up fast fashion, considering my relationship with fashion and creating a me-made wardrobe one stitch at a time.

Stick around for pattern and fabric shop reviews, project blogs, technique tutorials and opinion pieces.
