NEW YEAR! NEW NAME!

Hello Sewcialist,

I decided to re-brand my sewing blog under the name “Ludee B”. I thought it was more personal and represent who I am more vibrantly.

Hope you all like it as much as I love it. Happy New Year to all my followers! Lets sew more this year! Cheers!

100 Me Made Outfits

Hello Creative souls out there,

It’s almost the end of this year, and usually people make resolutions at the beginning of the year. But I am different, I make resolutions and goals whenever I feel like pushing myself.

Although I have been sewing a lot this year, I want to do a project that is constant and will give me a chance to explore more into sewing and learn new techniques. So I have decided to do a 100 me made outfits project – and the deadline will be my next birthday. Which gives me 195 days.

So here’s wishing myself, focus,perseverance and patience to finish 100 outfits in 195 days!

Until I come back with my first make..

Sewing for others

Hello Sewcialists,

Did you’ll watch the movie, Dressmaker? I did. Thrice already and I love it. After watching it, I thought I should give more thought about sewing for others and today I am sharing a few projects that I have been doing for the past couple of weeks for others. It’s a challenge to sew as per their individual preferences, and me being a sewing introvert, thought it’s a good challenge. I honestly cannot say I enjoy 100% but it’s an amazing learning curve. So here are my favorites from the recent past…
