  1. Hi Rosie, thanks for your videos. So helpful, I try to sew work clothes for my daughter who is same age as you and likes similar styles so they are perfect. But in your spring video 2018, the one where you show the formal patterns for your wedding sewing (v exciting :) )you use the word 'twirl' for trying out a pattern as practise run. Is that a sewing term or does it maybe come from the phrase - 'give it a twirl'
    I'm fascinated !
