You're a full-time maker, teacher, and designer, which sounds like you get to spend all day sewing with beautiful fabrics…what's a typical work day actually like for you? As your readers doubtless know by now, there is no “typical day” which suits me just fine! My schedule and work location ...

I loved this workshop - have you been to Creativebug today?
 
Darts are practical elements of patternmaking that ensure a good fit.

In the new workshop, Dart Manipulation with Liesl Gibson, of Oliver + S, you will move beyond the utilitarian and into the creative placement of darts!

Story
Tagline
i run. i craft. i write. i make your favorite clothes (and so can you!)
Introduction
I've never met anything I couldn't sew. Sewing makes me happy. I specialize in heirloom-quality garments and modern but timeless design. I love the challenge of creating garments specific to your needs, whether a tutu for a sensitive little ballerina, an extra tough pair of pants that is soft on the inside for that rough and tumble kid, your every day favorite clothes, or an elaborate formal gown. When it comes to sewing, I make things happen!

Basic Information

Female
We had a mosquito treatment done in our yard (which backs up to a protected wetland) and for the first summer we have lived here, we can enjoy our yard! We are deeply concerned about the environment and love the animals who visit our back yard. That's why it was so important to us that the treatment not be harmful to our furry neighbors. My daughter and I are both allergic to mosquitoes and cannot recommend CJB Pest and Mosquito control highly enough.
