Well, like the title reads, ask me whatever you want about the worlds of fashion, clothing and sewing.
A little bit about me: After finishing my design degree, I taught patternmaking and draping for about 6 years. After leaving academics, I realized that seasonal life in the hurly-burly of design really wasn’t where I needed to be.
Currently, I am focusing on more precious pieces and couture work. I am also working on developing findings (buttons, closures, etc.) and textile manipulation, like hand printing and embellishment.
At one point, I did make custom clothes for people, but got over that after making four wedding dresses in one year. I still get night sweats. *shivers*
I’m sure I left out a ton of other info, so just ask away in the comments. I can also field questions in millinery (hat making) and fabric dyeing, if you are interested.
Also, I can hold my own with Warehouse 13, Star Trek: TNG and Mystery Science Theater 3000 trivia.
Big, wet smooch kisses to Quasi for heading up this round of AMA’s, and a football-huddle group hug to the mods for letting it happen.
Ask away you glorious Deckers!
Oh, I’ll keep this open for most of the day for the non-Central Standard Time folks, but I’ll be shutting down around 3:30/4 ish for the weekend. But, if you ever have a question, feel free to add a comment even after today. I’d be happy to answer it.
And of course, the day of MY AMA, Kinja’s notifications are being a pain in the ass, so replies might be sluggish, but I’ll get there.
Nooooooow you can BRING IT ON!!!
