Many of us who are blessed enough to know how to sew, have been sewing face masks for family, friends, colleagues and essential workers. I love the idea of making more personalised, what some people call “fashion face masks”, in order to:

- remember which masks have already been worn before washing again;
- add some personality to something we are going to wearing daily;
- have some fun experimenting with embellishments!
Thousands of Little Boxy Dresses (LBD) have been made, so of course, we’ve seen lots of tweaks and design changes. Each completed dress makes a showcase of the wearer’s creativity, personality and style. I want to share some of my favourite LBD “hacks” with you.
