She's been hand sewing since she was 5 or 6, and I gave her her first machine this past July. You may also recognize her from our piece that aired in December featuring my donation program with kids in the community.
As far as drafting patterns for clothing, I can't remember the last time I did this! I wish I sewed for myself more. Sewing with Ella and other girls I teach makes me realize how much I just love sewing, without the purpose of making goods for my shop. My goal for 2015 is to make myself something at least once a month.
