As you may imagine, one of my happiest times is when I am constructing. Be that a sketch, the transition of this sketch to a pattern and the various stages needed to interpret this into a working pattern, sewing the first toile and making any adaption…. finally cutting the pattern in a chosen fabric to sew the garment ! This process can take a long time for a relative newby like myself (and a perfectionist with very definite ideas about design). So, using the best tools is important and these scissors – which were delivered this week – are some of the best.Even better, I can cut with a conscience as they are made just down the road in Sheffield (www.whiteley.co.uk). Go British and a welcome relief from business planning work !!
