Finding your style :
1. using style categories.
2. on-line style advisors.
3. exploring styles.
4. trying on clothes.

classic, competent, powerful, elegant chic, feminine, vintage, alluring, rebellious, creative, dramatic, relaxed, sporty, friendly.
Your personal combination of styles may be nothing like any of the ones mentioned by stylists 😀

    My name is Dawn and I am fashion and sewing enthusiast. I have enjoyed reading your sites blogs. I have recently launched a small sewing pattern business called the Vintage Sewing Pattern Company. We specialise in building our catalogue of vintage patterns and helping dress makers of all abilities re-create these designs. I would be very grateful if you could include a link to my site under your Pattern Links menu.

    Thanks in anticipation. Please contact me if I can be of any help to you.

    Happy Christmas
