This blog was started way back in 2006. I focused primarily on technical articles about grading and pattern making. Over time the blog has evolved to include other crafty pursuits sprinkled with the occasional technical discussion. The most popular entries are on How to reduce/eliminate sleeve cap ease, Neck opening circumferences, and Sewing set-in sleeves. Recently Priscilla came on board as an additional contributor.

I am a veteran of the fashion industry specializing in children's special occasion clothing. I have been involved with the manufacturing and selling of children's clothing in big box retail and specialty boutique stores. I currently work in the fashion industry as a pattern maker, as a part-time librarian, and occasional book artist. This blog features my exploration of clothing design and other crafty pursuits including knitting, spinning, and the book arts.

Outside The Globe, London, England
Many years ago as an undergraduate student, I needed a job and found one at the university's theatre costume shop. Little did I know at the time this would become a lifelong adventure. I fell in love with the theatre and have worked as a wardrobe dresser, stitcher, first hand, cutter/draper, wig stylist, and makeup artist. Eventually I went back to school and earned a MFA in costume design. I taught 8 years at Brigham Young University's Theatre and Media Arts Department. I also pursue tutu making, knitting, embroidery, basket weaving, book binding, gardening, and raising backyard chickens.
