What is your history with sewing?

Started when I was in 12 grade. Stopped for a while and picked it up again two years ago when I changed my major to Textiles and Apparels at UT. I mostly love making dresses but all clothing is of interest to me.

Tell us about your sewing machine(s).

I have a Husqvarna Viking model from the 70s. It's a work horse. Looking into buying a Janome Serger soon...

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

Curse a lot.

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

I made a scalloped black lace dress with french seams, a scoop neckline, 3/4 sleeves, and a nude lining. Its the sexiest dress I've made so far.

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

Some really huge couture gown with lots of beading. I love Dior couture.
