Welcome to Liddy + Jess.
I’m Emma – a knitter, sewer and general maker of things. I live in Perth, Australia with my partner and three fur-children.
I plan to use this space as a journal to document my adventures in making things and to share a bit about my life.
I started sewing and knitting a few years ago and quickly became just a teensy bit obsessed. I love the freedom I get from making my own clothes. I can make whatever I want, whenever I want, no matter what is considered fashionable at the time.
I can also make clothes that actually fit! No more empire line dresses that aren’t really supposed to be empire line dresses – amiright tall ladies?!
Being in control of how my clothes are made and what materials they are made from has also become increasingly important to me. In the world of fast-fashion, it’s refreshing to be able to knit a sweater and know exactly which sheep the wool came from.
Thanks for dropping by – I hope you stay a while and take a look around.
Please get in touch below if you have any questions or just want to say hi – I’d love to hear from you.
