Blog:  http://almostvintagelace.blogspot.com/ (started this week!)

How long have you been sewing:  I feel in love in 9th Grade Home Ec and haven’t stopped since.

Why did you want to commit to The Sew Weekly Challenge:  To challenge myself to break out of my “I only sew for special occasions” routine.

What do you love most about sewing garments:  When someone compliments me on my outfit and I say “Thanks! I made it”.  They usually follow up with “Can you make me one?”

What do you hate most about sewing garments:  HEMMING!!

What do you want to accomplish this year with regard to the challenge:  I want to make something for myself every week!

Your biggest non-sewing goal of 2012:  Be more social and explore the new city I call home, Charlotte, NC.

What are your favorite sewing/fashion blogs:  The Sew Weekly, Gertie’s New Blog for Better Sewing, Coletterie, Grosgrain, Sewaholic… just to name a few.

The Facts – Happy Halloween!

Wear again? Maybe… I might cut the top off and keep the skirt, it has pockets!!



Jessica's passion for learning and vision to "make it better" has lead her down a road of sewing for over 15 years. As a new blogger, she hopes to share her creations and inspire others with her love of all things vintage.

  1. Cool Halloween costumes! I have yet to figure out a good way of saying “no” for the “Can you make me one?” question :)
