Hey guys, my name is Steph!

I’m a primary school teacher who loves to eat, hike and sew. In 2015, I signed up for a Beginners Dressmaking Class and continued up until the end of 2017.

I started this blog in April 2018 to document my sewing progress and include other people in my sewing journey. But a month later in May 2018, I was diagnosed with Classic Hodgkin’s Lymphoma which is the cancer of the lymphatic system.

Since then, I decided to not only make this blog about sewing and fashion, but I also want this blog to inspire people to find beauty and confidence in themselves.

So I’m here to share my sewing passion with you and I’m here to share my story.

Welcome to Dressmaking Diary!
