Im a 25year old female sewist!
It took a while for me to become comfortable with sewing, I've been doing it for many years, but for a long time, I didn't take note of what I was actually doing, and the results showed.
Now, I take great pride in what I make. I've entered items into Pattern Reviews contests, of coats, little black dresses etc.
I recently married (august 2012), and am overly happy. On Saturdays I work at a local fabric and habby store, and just adore it.
