About



Hello!  My name is Stephanie and I'm a horticulturist who enjoys sewing just about anything.  Since I'm under 5'2", sewing petite clothing is my specialty and my passion.  I think that you can look great no matter your size or shape, you just need the tips and tools to succeed.  I love finding great deals, altering clothing and making crafts.  I'm married to a wonderful, easy-going guy named Scott.  I love hiking, I eat my burritos from the bottom up, I'm a plant nerd, I live in Colorado and I'm a Mormon.  I started this blog in September 2011 while still healing from shoulder and knee injuries.

On my blog, I'll share my sewing-related projects, tips and tutorials, petite advice, as well as a little crafting for the home.  I love sharing what I do and what I know that can help others.  I appreciate your comments and questions. If you would like to contact me by email, my address is thepetitesewist (at) gmail (dot) com. Thanks for stopping by!

  1. Hi, Stephanie! I'm so delighted to find your blog. I am a curvy 5'0", and I began teaching myself to sew in college because I was fed up with trying to find clothes that fit or someone to alter what I had. I'm looking forward to reading through your posts. Thank you so much!

  2. Hello Stephanie I am a Grannie who has returned to sewing after many years . I used to make clothes for my 2 daughters and now I have 2 small Grandaughters so I am back enjoying my sewing machine. I found your tutorial just great as I was faced with shortening some small sweat pants . Thank you I will certainly revisit you . Jan
