What is your history with sewing?

I've been involved with sewing on a hobby basis on and off for a few years. Lately, I haven't been doing anything, which is depressing. My particular interests are in practical, feminine women's clothing, traditional Japanese clothing, and cosplay.

Tell us about your sewing machine(s).

Just a basic Singer from Walmart. I'd really like to upgrade, but that only makes sense if I sew more. A serger would also be amazing!

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

Get out the seam-ripper. I can't let significant mistakes continue to exist - it just bothers me.

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

That would be a tie between a really cute, pleated skirt and a bright red hakama (a sort of pleated pant/skirt garment, traditional Japanese).

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

An embroidered, lined furisode ("flutter sleeve" lady's kimono).


I like making cute things that are still somehow practical.
