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.
The Sew Weekly began as Mena Trott's attempt to document the process of sewing all of her own clothes in 2010. In 2011, four other contributors (Debi Fry, Adey Lim, Veronica Darling & Sarah Gabbart) joined her and for 52 weeks, they sewed based on a particular weekly theme. In 2012, The Sew Weekly became a much larger group blog with over 130 contributors sewing along each week.
