I have loved and coveted clothes all of my life. After having such specific ideas of what I wanted to wear, and struggling to find those pieces from other sources, I taught myself patternmaking and refined my sewing skills in order to make what I wanted and, in turn, share it with the world.
Ready Ruthie is named after my mother who taught me to sew, to love beautiful textiles and craftsmanship, and to practice exquisite hedonism by wearing a sundress on a hot summer day. Many of my favorite items of clothing as well as the pieces influencing Ready Ruthie garments were worn and/or made by my mother, and I wear many of them today.
I work full time as a social worker and devote all spare time I can to Ready Ruthie. I fancy that someday I can sew full time.
