Or more importantly our holiday! Today I started making summer dresses for the girls for our trip in May. Saturdays with small children are a bit hectic so quite pleased to have finished this today after swimming (Crazy Ginger) and while juggling laundry and meal times.
The dress itself is a pretty cotton floral print, it’s a pull on design with a two tier gathered skirt. Lots of room for active children and nice and cool for hot days.

Below is a sample of the work that I do but every project is as unique as the people involved. Take a look at my blog to see more.
These are some of the craft items I have available. Visit my shop for currently available items (shop) or get in touch if you have an idea you’d like to discuss.
Hi my name is Amanda and I am Mand Made Sewing. I am an ex-IT professional, mum of two who loves creating bespoke designs be it craft items or clothes. I enjoy the challenge of taking someone’s idea, picture, dream and making it real. So whether you want a bag that says “this is me” or the perfect outfit for a special occasion then I’m your woman.
I have been making clothes for myself and other people for over 25 years. It all started simply with a pencil skirt at school and quite quickly grew to designing and making my own clothes for parties and those eighties discos. My first really big challenge was my sisters bridesmaids dresses which you can see in my blog posts here
More recently I have begun making craft items for gifts and for fun. My current speciality is themed shopper bags and fabric boxes, but this changes as ideas occur to me or someone asks for something different. Take a look in my shop gallery to see recent commissions here
