Hello! I like both modern and vintage clothes, and many of my favorite sewing books are older. Hand embroidery is an interest I hope to work into garments, and I’m taking baby steps into learning some tailoring skills.
Lately I’ve been doing more hand basting and sewing on some parts of construction, and the pace at which I turn out completed garments Is pretty glacial. But I’m sewing almost every day.
I love working with cotton. I’m vegan, so most fabrics I use are plant derived, and the rest are synthetic.
I’ve been sewing much more since 2015 and am enjoying reading about the sewing adventures of others!
