What do these three ladies have in common? Apart from looking fab, of course!

The answer? They all made their own clothes. As many of you know, I'm a huge advocate f knowing how to sew, and these gorgeous ensembles are exactly the reason why. You'd be surprised how easy it is to learn the basics, and it doesn't take much to whip up a simple skirt or even an intricate dress like the one on the left (hard to believe, but that's actually made from one of the simplest patterns going and can be sewn in one night).

In the coming months Catwalk Queen - with a bit of help from our friends at Crafty Crafty - will be campaigning to get you lot sewing your own creations. So look out for tips, tricks and projects very soon!
