I am an amateur seamstress interested in improving my skills in garment- and pattern-making.

I have been sewing for almost 6 years (since I was 17), initially resizing old T-shirts and making purses. Later I started making clothing from "scratch" by experimenting and using tutorials I found online.

My sewing machine is a Kenmore, Model 385.19233.

The extent of my formal sewing instruction is a high school clothing class, but I am planning to begin a course in fashion design this fall. I also read sewing books for fun!
