I was breaking my mother's sewing machine at 5. I've been sewing for myself my entire life and had an internship at the UT Costume Shop. I've sold some stuff, but mostly sewing is about my own personal expression.
I have a 2000 Singer that has only managed to break down the once (and I wasn't at the helm at the time so it hardly counts.) And a Janome MyLock serger.
Generally curse and rail at myself under my breath for a minute before deciding if it's a mistake I can work with or if I need to get out the seam ripper.
I made this really cute cupcake summer dress for a friend. I do have pictures of it!
I'm starting plans, creative board, and pattern swatches for making myself a (very selfish) rockabilly collection. Also I want to start making cute spoonflower lingerie and make a couple of Theogamia presents for some of my lady friends.
Hi, I'm a born Austinite, a nerd, and generally crafty person.
