Thanks for stopping by my blog-umentary.
The quest for a handmade wardrobe has been my religion for over a decade.
If you are new here, let me catch you up….
- My adventures in garment sewing went public in 2012, when I joined other challenge-hungry sewists to contribute to the The Sew Weekly blog. I sewed a garment a week for 25 weeks straight.
- Shortly after, I took a break from making clothes to make a baby. When I returned to blogging and sewing in 2014, I had a jones for DIY clothes that would fit my working mom lifestyle.
- When I reached a plateau with my self-taught skills, I began a virtual apprenticeship with couturier and teacher, Brooks Ann Camper. You’ll discover that I am an unapologetic evangelist for her intro to custom sewing course.
- When I made a denim skirt using a pattern I drafted, it was clear that my relationship with sewing had evolved.
- After a 31-day mission to sew pants from scratch, custom sewing was officially my new language.
Even though my passion for this craft often feels insatiable, I sew and write at the pace of life.
Connecting with other human beings who also love sewing. That also lights me up. So, don’t be shy about leaving a comment or sending me an email. I look forward to meeting you.
