Annie… where do I begin? We have been talking about making clothes out of my patterns via instagram comments and when I finally got the drive to do it I contacted her immediately. Don’t you love how social media can bring people together? I love Annie’s style and she has the most adorable ETSY site where she sells her clothing line WRARE . I may abuse my privileges here because I am so excited for her to make a slew of cute clothes to wear!
I started sewing by hand and eventually bought my first Singer sewing machine. Purchased a mannequin and would make myself dresses, skirts, and tops. I worked 2 jobs and would come home from one, make myself an outfit for the next, and then come home from work and sew some more. Then I had a wedding to plan…and I obviously wanted to make my dress. After making my hand stitched 75+ yards of tulle and silk gown, I took a hiatus. And by hiatus I mean I got pregnant and the babe stole ALL of my creativity. I wanted to make my unborn baby girl SO many things, but I was at a mental BLOCK! Soon after she was born I made her a little dress, followed by headbands, and it just went from there. I am forever learning new tricks and traits along with managing sewing everything myself with a toddler running rampant in my sewing room/play room. Its tough, but I think because I am a Mother, I feel more motivated. That is my story. I hope you enjoy my items and much as I do.
