What is your history with sewing?

I learned basic sewing in home economics in 8th grade, but never did much with it. I decided to start sewing clothes for myself in the fall of 2013. I'm still a beginner, but I love pushing myself to learn new skills. Everything I've learned since I've started has been from books or blogs or just plain figuring it out myself.

Tell us about your sewing machine(s).

I have a Pfaff Ambition Essential, and a Brother 1034D serger.

When you make a mistake while sewing, what do you do?

If it's minor, I might just leave it, as I don't mind a few imperfections. Otherwise, seam ripper!

What's your favorite thing you've ever sewn? Can we see a picture?

Usually the latest thing is my favorite, although I will say I am particularly proud of all the jeans I've made. I blog at and you can see photos of my work there.

If skill, time, and resources were no issue, what would you sew right now?

I'm obsessed with pretty much every Deer & Doe pattern, so I'd sew them all! Skill-wise, I'm still scared of fabrics like rayon challis and silk, but I'd love to sew them one day. And I'd love to make a nice tailored coat.


I'm 28 and live with my husband and a kitty named Lentil. I love cooking, baking, sewing, knitting, watching movies, and staying active (lifting weights, tennis, yoga, walking, hiking, swimming).
