Here is a sample of some of the garments that I have sewn for myself and for my family. I am interested in swimwear, athletic apparel, and comfortable clothing. I love designs with soft fabric, warm and fuzzy fabric, bright colors, contrast, embellishments such as beading or embroidery, and diagonal lines.
As a female swimmer, it has often been hard for me to find clothing that fits well due to my wide shoulders, so I love making my own custom clothing so that I can make sure that it is comfortable and fits correctly. I often make patterns for clothing with raglan sleeves or drop-sleeves to fit my shoulders.
I mainly sew clothing with knit fabric, using a home serger and sewing machine. I love sewing knits because of the stretch and comfort. Recently, I have been practicing sewing apparel from woven fabric.
