I am Stephanie Burwell, a lover of all things DIY with a passion for fashion and sewing. As a little girl I was fascinated with the endless possibilities of being able to make things with your hands, and my addiction to shopping ( yes I was a shopaholic at the age of 9 - albeit it was via the means of my mother) fueled my dreams of making my own clothes. In 2011 I graduated with a degree in Fashion Merchandising having a bulk of experience in the retail world, but it wasn't until the end of 2012 that I finally obtained my certificate in French Couture Dressmaking. My new found skill had me anxious and eager to get to work, so I began making custom clothing for friends and family to practice what I had learned. That experience was fun, but I quickly realized that what I truly wanted to do was make clothes for myself and teach others how they can do the same.
So here is where I invite you on my journey to transforming my wardrobe into one that is completely handmade. I will share my experiences and tips I have gathered over the years, as well as projects that I am working on from the perspective of how I wish someone would have shared them with me as I was learning to sew.
All in all, I hope that this space is one that is inspirational as well as educational, and that at the very least you are able to make at least one project I share successfully.
