About me

I live in Brisbane, Australia (originally from NZ) and love fashions of the 40s, 50s and early 60s.  I love to collect knitting and sewing patterns from this era and wish I had more spare time to make them all!
I started sewing at age 10 when my great-aunt took me to my first sewing course where I became a qualified Knitwit!!  I have loved sewing ever since and make things mostly for me, sometimes for mum and  very occasionally for friends.  My favourite things to make are dresses and tops that I can wear everyday.  I now work from a home office so I can pretty much wear what I like!

I also like to knit and have a bit of an obsession with patterns from the 40s and 50s, and love the patterns from A Stitch in Time & A Stitch in Time Volume 2.  I only wish that I could knit faster as I seem to take forever to knit up a jumper!!

Hubby and I are also renovating our house so I am sure I will be posting a few pics of that from time to time. We share our home with our two adorable kitties Sundar and Kyipo who will no doubt feature from time to time.

Feel free to email me on liz (dot) alexandre (at) gmail (dot) com - I would love to hear from you!

  1. Hi Liz, just finally got time to drop over for a visit. We are renovating a house in Townsville. It seems as if we started our blogs around the same time. Thrilled to be a new follower.
