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.

Ella is ready to go back to school

Pin It!

…and I’m ready to ask for pattern testers….

…if you’re interested in making one of these Goodship Dresses for your little girl (sizes 2-12) please let me know. There’s a box in the upper-right corner of my blog where you can sign up, or simply email me.

Oh Yes, there’s a Boy version too, naturally!

    I’d love to be a pattern tester. I entered my email above (it subscribed me to your newsletter). I have your book and have made several items. I’m in the middle of a few pair of treasure pocket pants for school now. My daughter is almost 6 and my son is 3. I’d be happy to try a pattern for girls or boys. Thanks. kristie_keely(at)yahoo(d0t)com

    I found your Flickr stream thanks to Rae’s washi pool. Love your sewing, and I’m totally in love with this pattern. I don’t really have time to test right now, but I’m very much looking foward to the pattern release!

      Yay Jenny! Thanks for visiting!

    I’m another one who found you via Made By Rae, and I’ve used some of the Figgy’s patterns in the past for my 2 boys. I’d love to test out the dress pattern for my 6-year-old girl
