I’ve been sewing since I was a child.
As soon as I picked up a scissors, I never wanted to put it down. And my mother and grandmother indulged me with all kinds of gorgeous fabric scraps. I think my dolls were some of the best dressed in the neighborhood.
When I got older I was allowed to do things for myself….some were horrible, but I wore them anyway. I was always surrounded by pattern magazines and had a steady diet of Style with Elsa Klench on TV, so I’d see all these fab designer clothes and try to copy them. I may have chosen finance as my field, but sewing is still my first love.
