I’m a third-year costume student and sewing is pretty much what I do when I’m not thinking about sewing. Historical construction fascinates me, but I love interesting materials like leather, latex and lycra so much that a vintage sewing machine aboard a spaceship is probably my ideal scenario! I’m interested in how things are put together and how to make clothes both functional and beautiful. Our world is full of crappy throwaway fashion – I love things that are made to last.
By day I work in fashion retail and as an assistant editor/pattern drafter for two print magazines, but at night I transform into a scissor-wielding demonness with a needle for every fabric and a stitch to whip them into shape!
Things I can’t resist:
Old sewing machines
Always wash your fabric before you sew and always hold hands when you cross the road!
