Love this sweater dress. It has some stretch to it and it's very comfortable to wear. Can wear it tights or leggings. Love the contrast in the front make the waist look smaller and hides any problem areas.

This top is comfortable and can be dressed up and looks great with jeans. It's fabulous under a cardigan on colder days.

About

On a tangent

I started sewing almost 10 years ago while I was a Respiratory Therapist. I bought my first sewing machine and started sewing up a storm. After a while, I needed to learn more so I signed-up for classes to learn how to make patterns.

A year later, the opportunity arose to open up a studio with some fellow designers. I took the leap, quit my job and created "tangente" (which is the french spelling of tangent). At the studio, I did a wide range of jobs from alterations to costume design for local films all while trying to make samples for my very first collection.

My first collection was sold in a few stores locally. After a year at the studio, I was offered a desk job with a stable pay check. I jumped at the chance, closed the studio and put designing on the back burner for a while. A few years later, I realized I could never do a desk job for the rest of my life and I started selling on Etsy. At first I sold some supplies and older inventory but after my first sale, I was hooked. I dusted off my old sewing machine and began designing new styles. Now 5 years later, I finally quit my desk job to concentrate on selling on Etsy full-time.

My current collection can now be found in boutiques across Canada.

I also teach sewing classes at Fabrications in Ottawa.
