Aurora Leah's Profile
I first started sewing when I was 14 years old.
The first thing I ever attempted to sew was a teeny- weeny reversible bikini. It was a very difficult project!
My mother and grandmother helped me struggle through. They taught me how to use the machine (which was one of those old black cast iron singers) and held me when I cried.
After four months of sewing, seam ripping and adding elastic and drawstring, I did have a very cute reversible bikini, which, I was very proud!
From that first experience I was propelled onward into the world of sowing!
How liberating to make my own clothes! To be able to create something funky and unique.
I started re-modeling old clothes from thrift stores and using recycled materials to create really wild clothing.
Then my travels took me to foreign lands and I discovered the world of textiles!…
