So pretty much, I have always loved to sew. My grandmas started teaching me when I was about 7, and I took a bunch of local embroidery classes... which were kind of awkward because everyone was a lot older than I was.
I never really took it seriously until December 2011, when I was forced to make a vintage style dress for a play that I was in!
That is when I really learned how to use patterns, and I kind of became obsessed. I am so lucky that my grandma has saved all of her mother's old patterns!
She let me take all the ones that I want (which is enough to keep me busy for eternity) as well as any of the fabric that was hers or her mum's. I have done so much sewing with all that!

I think it is so much fun to have complete control over what you are making! Really, the options are endless--designing is the best part!
I actually sell most of the dresses that I make! I'll show you my two favorite that I've sold...
