Meet Curvy Sewist
I’m a serial crafter – in my home you’ll find evidence of sewing, crocheting, knitting, embroidery, lampworking, jewelry making, and any number of other crafty endeavors. But sewing is my first – and best – love.
I make most of the clothes in my wardrobe, and many of the clothes in other peoples’ wardrobes.
I hunt for vintage notions and fabrics, and what I don’t use I’ll make available to you.

A “Do-It-Yourself” attitude served me well!
Like many other kids of my era, I learned to sew at school. A bevy of giggling girls working on pieces of clothing that we would never wear, simply because we needed to learn a technique.
After school, the techniques I had learned served me well, as I retained an interest in making clothes for myself. The lack of “off the rack” clothes that I actually liked helped me carve out a style for myself.
I could – and still can – often be found scouring thrift stores for just the right piece of fabric to be upcycled into something I couldn’t find elsewhere.
