Name & Location: Emma from Missoula, Mt


How long have you been sewing: Sporadically for a 2 years.

Why did you want to commit to The Sew Weekly Challenge: I think it will be a good learning experience for me. Also, I can never find what I’m looking for when I go clothes shopping (erhm..ok, most of the time I don’t even know what I’m looking for..!) so this will give my sadly lacking wardrobe more items!

What do you love most about sewing garments: I really like being able to put my personality into what I wear and also knowing that everything I make is unique.

What do you hate most about sewing garments: My tendency to get sucked in and not be able to quit working on something, especially when I start messing things up and should stop. It makes me frustrated and even more determined to continue working on the garment. Vicious, vicious cycle.

What do you want to accomplish this year with regard to the challenge: To sew garments for myself that I will actually wear and look as nice on the inside as they do on the out.

Your biggest non-sewing goal of 2012: I just started training this fall to compete in some half ironman triathlons this upcoming summer. I am super nervous but also very, very excited!

What are your favorite sewing/fashion blogs: Elegant Musings and Grosgrain



Emma Simuns is a fashion loving, penny pinching girl who has just started a love affair with all things vintage.

  1. Ooo, a lot of people here seem to be training for marathons, a very impressive group! And I agree, sometimes it’s hard to stop sewing when you should. I’m trying to be better at that myself :)
