I'm Stephanie and sewing is my jam!

If I'm not sewing, I'm probably thinking about it...or picking apart how your clothing was made.  If you have a question or something to say, feel free to leave a comment or find me on my Facebook page.  My email is 86flowersAT!gmaildotcom

  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

  3. Hello! I have just discovered your blog and I love it!

    I am also a Petite, and I'm just learning how to sew.
    I wonder if there any books specialized in Petite size sewing?

    Thank you in advance for your reply!

    1. I'm not aware of any books specifically for petites (we are a rather small niche group, unfortunately) but there are plenty of books about pattern alterations. Petite sewing isn't that different that regular sewing, you just have to take out some length where it isn't needed, like in the thigh, the torso, and so forth.
