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.

Finally, I have the two pieces manifested as they appeared in my head together and finished. The dress is just how I wanted it, from the wide, round collar to the curved hem, to the puff-cuff sleeves, and the pinafore makes Ella dance when she wears it.
