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.

Pin It!

Ella and I went to visit my mother in law on Saturday (and I forgot the dress I was working on over there!!  I cannot wait to show you…)

I’ve finally worked out the kinks in the pattern for the banded beauty tunic (which she is wearing) and I braved cutting this fabric I’ve been hoarding.  The pink pucker-fabric was a little surprise from Shelly and I love it as bloomy bloomers!!


I’ll try to take some more photos after my work day (not sewing work, “work” work…)tomorrow. I also have some fun new menswear trousers I just finished up in a gorgeous pinstriped linen with some japanese canvas accents….just a hem is needed before you can see!
