Fashion sewing can really give you a taste of the celebrity lifestyle, without the constant barrage of the press.
Forget the reality TV shows or seeking that fifteen minutes of fame – pick up a needle and thread and your celebrity status will be immortalised forever in the clothes you create.
Fashion sewing is in its ascendancy causing the fashion designer many a sleepless night. More and more women are learning the art of dressing for their own specific size and shape, not allowing fancy yet false advertising campaigns to lead them astray.
Paying the price for celebrity? I’d rather fashion sew for FREE!
Unlocking The Celebrity Code

It’s kind of a strange (and worrying) world in which we now find ourselves.
People want celebrity like never before and they’ll do anything to achieve this so called status.
They will sing, dance, ridicule themselves and others and even go so far as to cosmetically change their appearance for fame and fortune.
Gone are the days when celebrity was something of a life long career option. Today, as with high street clothing, it’s a disposable pleasure that comes and goes in the blink of an eye (or camera shutter).
Today, it’s all about the ‘I AM‘ or ‘LOOK WHAT I’VE GOT‘ attitude.
And that is where fashion sewing unlocks the celebrity code -
Celebrities will always draw attention to who’s clothes they wear, simply look at any red carpet! We, as our own designers (we are Sewingista’s) make, wear and promote our own talents and too get the attention from those that admire our skills.
I don’t know about you, but whenever I wear one of my many sewing projects, not only do I get a great many people asking about its origins, which is a confidence boost in itself, but I’m at the front of the Que when a photo opportunity arises.
Am I being a diva! NO, I’m just proud of what I can achieve with a little time and effort.
Smile For The Camera

Not only do we as fashion sewers share the notoriety of celebrity when it comes to obtaining another’s attention, we also like to walk down our own red carpet, and allow the world to gaze at our new and loved sewing projects.
What am I talking about? Social media of course!
More and more of us the world over, are utilising such media as Facebook, Twitter, Flickr and alike to post pictures of our unique creations. We stand in front of the adoring camera, pose (well I know I do) and share these images with the world.
I can only hope this sharing trend continues, as not only does it inspire others to take up the fine art of fashion sewing, it shows us, the Sewingista that our community is growing at a healthy rate.
Gone are the days of the dressmaker and seamstress. Fashion sewing is now in the limelight.
It’s time for YOUR curtain call!
So next time your out, remember the celebrity within.
DO insist on a little more time to get ready, DO get the best seat in the house to allow maximum benefit of a grand entrance and DO take every opportunity to show off your skills and talent.
Has your passion for fashion sewing brought about any ‘celebrity’ moments? I’d be interested to hear about them.
Happy fashion sewing
