Happily sewing for 40+ years. I love sewing for children, especially vintage and classic styles. I love sailor suits and have made several. One was featured in a Sew Beautiful article, as well as another little romper in another issue. I am the delighted Nana of two little boys and am the founding member of the "Boys are Fun to Sew for Too!" Club. I do a little sewing for adults, a bit of home dec and am just venturing into a bit of quilting. But garment sewing is my first love and sewing for babies and children will always be my favourite!
