Welcome To So What If I Sew

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

Here I document my sewing journey honestly, share new makes and techniques, discuss sewing fails and document 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 honest sewing diaries, pattern and fabric shop reviews, project blogs, and lots of opinion pieces.
