menswear sewing & high-rise harvests

About me

Hi, welcome to What the Crop. My name is Duncan, and this blog is all about my creative passions — urban gardening, menswear sewing, food and a whole host of arty experiments.

Duncan Carter about me

I love making things and learning new creative skills. I have been sewing since 2014 after a childhood obsession with Project Runway led me to take a part-time clothesmaking course. Since then I’ve appeared on The Great British Sewing Bee and I now blog regularly for Minerva Crafts’ Blogger Network.

I also come from a family of allotment and veg plot enthusiasts but I was never that interested in gardening until recently. I have always lived in cities since leaving school so never had a garden to play with, but in 2017 I started container planting on my city balcony. I’ve had successes, failures and lots of tasty meals courtesy of the wee garden.

So I hope you enjoy reading about some of my favourite hobbies, and please do leave comments on any posts that interest you. You can also get in touch with me here.
