A little about my sewing history… I’ve been interested in sewing and clothes basically since I was born! I started sewing with my grandma and have since then continued to explore the world of sewing.
At the age of 17 I dropped out of school to do what I love. I started an internship with a tailor, making bridal and prom dressed mostly. I continued on to London (I’m from Sweden btw) where I studied bespoke tailoring for a year. At the age of 19 me and my mother opened a clothing shop in my home town, focusing on sustainable fashion.
After closing our shop I took a little break from sewing and did not touch a sewing machine in 2 years time. I mostly focused on music (which is also an interest of mine) during this time. When I got pregnant in 2016 I started to feel the need of making clothes again. I started sewing baby clothes and in December 2018 I quit my job as a textiles teacher to finally get on with my childhood dream.
I started making lingerie in 2017. I was always told it was so difficult and not something one wants to make. One day I decided to buy some fabric and give it a go. It took some time to get the fitting right, getting used to the new materials etc. I made all the patterns myself (still do) and it was all a try and error kind of game.
I can honestly say I’m so happy I started with lingerie! It's not as scary as you might think nor is it as difficult as I was told. If you haven’t tried it, YOU SHOULD! <3
Far from everyone fits in to the fashion industry's standard measurements.
I'm one of them.
Therefore I'm making my patterns from what I miss within the industry.
When buying patterns I often find the pattern and instructions very messy. That usually puts me off, therefore I decided to make them as clear and simple as possible. I want anyone to be able to read, understand and follow my patterns & instructions without getting a headache.
"Thank you for a great pattern"
"This is so much fun, I've gotten addicted"
"I love the fitting of the panties"
