In the fashion world I am "plus size". Yes, siree, I've got curves and I'm not afraid to use 'em! As a part time FATshionista, I love that by sewing I can make unique clothes that I would never find in any shop, and make them so they actually fit me. What a revolutionary thought! After all, why shouldn't everyone rock their own personal style, regardless of size?
Now a contented 40-something, I divide my time between proper work (designing) and sewing/crafting, whiling away the hours in a brilliant 'shed' at the bottom of my garden, where I can create mess to my hearts content! I love books, design, crafting, reading, red shoes, my cats (Ferris & Lloyd) and very dark organic chocolate (not necessarily in that order). Oh, and my bloke, who encourages me every day to live my dreams and take time to jump in puddles, and happens to be the most AMAZING (and occasionally annoying) man in the world.
I live in a tiny cottage at the edge of the Chiltern Hills. You can contact me at
