The best sewing podcast

I discovered this podcast a few years ago when I started to learn to sew my own clothes and it’s been a fantastic resource that’s helped and inspired me along the way, I look forward to every new episode I just wish they were longer 😍. Love Helen’s patterns my favourite the Ruby overalls ❤️.
