Introducing the Material Lady

Hi! My name is Kim and I am a City and Guilds (Fashion I & II) qualified dressmaker living in Worcestershire, England. I have been sewing for other people for the last 20 years and in that time I have been asked to make lots of interesting garments (including decorating bras for the Moonwalk!) and met some lovely people. Sadly, I have got out of the habit of sewing for myself so I hope this blog will make me do more if that.Check my posts to see what I am doing now. No customer work will be shown – all the garments shown will be my own.

If you want to contact me my address is themateriallady’at’ g mail dot com.

    I just found your blog after searching for images of the McQueen kimono jacket. It’s great to read some really honest writing about sewing related stuff, that’s not peppered with promotions and the same old patterns that everyone in the blogosphere seems to be making.
