What is your history with sewing?

Sewed with my mother growing up, got my Bachelor's Degree in Apparel Design in Wisconsin. Now own my own clothing line (www.elenamercurio.com) and am currently sewing line solo but looking to hire on soon.

Tell us about your sewing machine(s).

Kenmore Sewing Machine, Brother Serger.

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

Let out a groan and grab my seam ripper.

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

For my senior collection I took inspiration from St. Basil's Cathedral in Moscow and sewed together hundreds of pyramid shapes into a black silk organza top and rich black/purple brocade skirt. It looked amazing, so architectural and fun. Like nothing I've seen before. I won the Trendsetter award for it as well.

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

Another amazing collection!!


New to Austin and looking forward to making some connections in the sewing/fashion world here.
