I run, I craft, I write, and I make your favorite clothes.

I have written books about sewing for children and adults and I'm the indie designer’s patternmaking secret weapon. I've taught video and in-person classes to anyone who would listen since 2008. I believe that sewing clothes is a radical act of self-love that increases your sense of self-worth. I'm basically your sewing fairy godmother.

    Funny…I was up a the same time, only I was supposed to be working on my resume. I’ve admired this fabric so often online, and I just love what you’ve done with it. And that double-gauze for Peter is dreamy.

    That’s a beautiful dress, Karen! The fabric is adorable – I’m sure that little girl will be thrilled! :)

    Sophia and I both love the dress you made! I have not let her wear it yet though(I’m so mean). Maybe for picture day???
