Simon took up sewing in his 50s after getting a sewing machine as a Christmas present in 2019.
Simon knew virtually nothing about sewing or how sewing patterns worked. But over time he’s learned a thing or two and today Simon loves sewing dresses for his wife Lizzy and lots of bright, collared shirts for himself.
Some of Simon's makes mentioned on the episode:
