Dolly Clackett
Dolly ClackettBlogger Roisin’s mix of witty writing and beautiful dresses make Dolly Clackett one of my go-to blogs if I’m in need of some ideas of what to make. The bright prints she uses in her makes and the fact that most of her sewing is made up of fifties style fit and flare dresses is the reason I regularly read her blog. Roisin takes her inspiration from the By Hand London girls and Christine Haynes, so if you love them too, then this blog is for you.

Londoner Fiona makes a mix of handmade clothing and set up her sewing blog about three years ago to track her sewing progress. She is also a regular pattern tester for sewing brand By Hand London and was one of the first people to make the indie sewing company’s Zeena dress in two lovely blue prints. Recent blog posts include sewing her own activewear!

What Katie Sews
Diary of a Chain Stitcher
If you’re looking for a sewing blog with lots of variety then What Katie Sews is one you won’t want to miss out on. The Londoner, who also runs blog, What Katie Does, set up her blog in an attempt to build a wearable, everyday wardrobe. Katie likes to sew her own basics with a few special makes thrown in and her more neutral prints are what attracted me to the blog in the first place.

Amy is a girl after my own heart – a fan of printed dresses and Liberty fabrics. Her blog, Almond Rock, features her favourite makes as well as the lovely fabric she chooses to make them with – her Eiffel tower printed dress is definitely worth checking out! Amy lives in Leeds and is also the editor of craft magazine Love Sewing, so you know she’s got some great advice.

Recent posts include Karen’s colour inspiration and fabric shopping in Berlin, but she also champions the indie sewing companies as well as her area of London, Walthamstow. Give Did You Make That? a follow if you’re looking for a great read!
