About the Seamstress

Hello there and welcome to my blog! My name is Elizabeth and this is my little space to share all my sewing adventures with you. Sewing is a huge passion of mine!

I am 21 years old, Catholic, and a senior in college. I will graduate in May with my nursing degree. I have lived in MN my entire life. Besides sewing, I also enjoy reading, writing, running, riding my bike, baking, cooking, playing my violin, having long conversations with friends, and babysitting.

I am the oldest of nine kids (I have six amazing brothers and two adorable sisters). I love being part of a big family!

Some of my favorite things are skirts, the color turquoise, fabric, dark chocolate, coffee, books, vintage, snail-mail, and the sound of laughter.

I LOVE to sew. I love it so much that I brought my sewing machine and all my fabric with me to college. It's something I can do when I need to relieve stress or take a study break. I was first introduced to sewing in 6th grade through 4-H. I started with making quilts and then moved on to elastic-waistband skirts. I didn't really get into making clothing until the summer I turned 16.

I created this blog because sewing is something I enjoy so much that I want to share it with other people. It’s my little corner in the blogosphere to document my projects, other sewing-related posts, and just life in general. I hope you’ll stay awhile!
