The ” I Love this dress” Dress

Name & Location : Casandra Riddle Tomball, TX (just outside of Houston)

Blog: None as of yet. Quite scared to start one really.

How long have you been sewing: Started in home econ in the 7th grade and on and off ever since, but now REALLY on.

Why did you want to commit to The Sew Weekly Challenge: I wanted to challenge myself to step out of the “sewing box” as I tend to sew what is on the pattern and “steal” ideas from other sewists.

What do you love most about sewing garments: I love that I made it mine and that know one else has the exact same thing. Also that it is made of quilty fabric and not going to fall apart within a few years.

What do you hate most about sewing garments: Tracing and cutting out patterns. Button holes!!!!!

What do you want to accomplish this year with regard to the challenge: Again steping out of my “zone” and making cool clothes.

Your biggest non-sewing goal of 2012: Getting the last of the moving boxes unpacked. (We have been here two years)

What are your favorite sewing/fashion blogs: I read quite a few. Oonaballoona, Male pattern boldness, and of course The Sew Weekly



Casandra Riddle is a full time mom to 4 great kids and loves to sew for all of them (my husband might get some things too).I have pretty much been sewing on and off for years, but only in the past 8 years have I been hardcore about it. I am looking forward to working on my sewing skills and making more clothes then buying ready to wear.
