I love sewing. It’s my talent and my medicine. It’s like a stress release for me. Something I can hibernate to and be alone in my wandering thoughts. However, I didn’t always love sewing. I used to be scared to death of a sewing machine. Every time I attempted, I broke something. I took an eight year hiatus from sewing and designing, until my daughter was born. She was my miracle from God. I didn’t realize the talents I truly possessed until she was born. It takes a lot of courage and strength (two characteristics I lack) to give birth. Since that day, I knew I was capable of accomplishing anything I wanted! And what I wanted was to design again and truly learn how to sew by machine. I enjoy recreating fashions that I normally cannot buy or have the money to do so. I study the pictorial and draft up a pattern, get the fabrics of my choice, and give it my own personal flare. My most favorite thing to do is recreate a fashion that I modestly wouldn’t be able to wear, and make my own the way I want it, and modest by my standards. Best part is: No one else has it!
