I started sewing with my Grandmother when I was 7. She taught me first to pin and cut and quickly graduated me to fine machine and hand sewing and pattern drafting. Now I like to make beautiful and fun garments for my daughter and myself, my lovely friends and wonderful clients! I aspire to make costumes for theatre and films... period dramas would be so fun to costume!
I especially love retro looks and try to incorporate vintage style with modern sensibilities. Meaning I use vintage patterns with new fabric that has a retro look, new zippers, etc. so each garment goes in the wash and you can wear it for a long time to come. BUT If you need a strictly period accurate garment for a special event, I can do that too.
