I’m Ashley.

I blog over at craftsanctuary.com, mostly about sewing, but occasionally about knitting, travel, and other crafty business.  I am a Chicago transplant by way of New York, and I still have dreams about walking through the garment district after work.

I started sewing when I was a little girl.  I was that weird kid that flipped through a catalogue looking for a birthday present, and said “Can I have a sewing machine?”  I taught myself from there.  I made doll clothes and hemmed pants throughout elementary school and college (I’m only 5ft tall!) and started making actual clothes for myself about 5 years ago.

I mostly make and wear dresses, but have been know to venture into the land of lingerie-making on occasion.  I’ve also made a couple of separates over the years, but really it’s mostly dresses.  Lots and lots of dresses.
