I am Kim, living in Worcestershire England. I have been sewing since childhood but working as a dressmaker since 2000.
I do lots of alterations (have been working with an expensive ladies dress shop) but also commissions for daywear and (less frequently) bridal. I had a bad time working for a bridal studio and find bridal work leaves me very stressed ( dressmaking by committee) and prefer to do work for people with physical difficulties.
I love sewing and would love to do more experimentation but I also keep horses and between clients, family, and animals I find any spare time a luxury.
Fabric stores are becoming a rarity in the Worcs area. Is this the same in the US?
Would love to hear from anyone who loves sewing and horses!
