My little wedding dress

Name & Location: Pauline Tise


How long have you been sewing: I’ve been sewing on and off since high school.

Why did you want to commit to The Sew Weekly Challenge: I want to sew more regularly, and learn new skills, and I think the weekly challenges will be a fun way to do this.

What do you love most about sewing garments: I love picking out fabrics and ending up with something that actually fits.

What do you hate most about sewing garments:  Hemming.  I get so excited that I’m nearly done that I tend to rush the hem, which means I then have to re-do the hem.

What do you want to accomplish this year with regard to the challenge: I want to sew a jacket.

Your biggest non-sewing goal of 2012: My biggest non-sewing goal of 2012 is to develop my jewelry making business.

What are your favorite sewing/fashion blogs: The Coletterie, Casey’s Elegant Musings, Grosgrain, The Sew Weekly



Pauline is a jewelery designer who sews as a hobby. She joined The Sew Weekly to expand her sewing skills, as she typically sews only fancy dresses, and living in Alaska, she doesn't have as many fancy dress occasions as she'd like.
