My mom was always sewing something when I was a child. I loved looking through her fabric and patterns, designing clothing for my mom to make. Sewing was a strong part of my childhood.
Now that I am a mother, I love to sew for my children. My daughter is always looking through my fabric and patterns, just I did. I especially love sewing costumes and clothing for special events. I have more than 10 years of experience sewing. I have sewn costumes, children’s clothing, women’s clothing, men’s clothing, coats and crafts. I make a new costume every year for my children, the sky's the limit for their choices. I go all out to make them perfect. I made my daughter an Anna costume for which I learned embroidery so I could hand embroider it. I spent over 30 hours working on embroidery for the dress. I even learned to knit so I could make a sweater for my son’s Kristoff costume. I am mostly self-taught, taking online courses and reading books for special skills. I have learned couture techniques from an online class taught by Sarah Khalje. From what I learned in that class and from my pattern making classes, I was able to design a custom silk wedding dress for my sister.
