Hey Sewists! I am Sarah and I blog at Musings of a Seamstress. I am a Midwestern girl who has a passion for sewing, knitting, cooking, traveling, and photograpy. I have been with my husband for 15 years. We have two cats and two dogs who keep us on our toes. We are currently in the process of adopting our first child, which I blog about from time to time. My husband and I also enjoy going to the renaissance faire every year, of course we are in costumes that I make.
I have known since I was in second grade that I want to work in fashion. When my sister and I were younger we used to play dress-up with our bed sheets. I would always play the “designer” and drape the sheet around her creating new dresses for her to wear. It was no surprise that when I graduated high school I was going to college for design. I received my BA in apparel design in 2006 and now work as a Senior Technical Designer for a garment manufacturer designing show choir costumes. My life is full of sequins and glitter and I wouldn’t have it any other way. I spend most all of my spare time sewing, thinking about sewing, or blogging my makes. I make about 85% of my own wardrobe that I constantly wear. I truly am obsessed with sewing and very excited to share some of my tips and techniques with all of you.
