Hi there, I’m Stephanie.
& I’M SO HAPPY YOU ARE HERE!
This blog is where I document my makes. I am mainly a sewer and a knitter but do explore new crafts every now and then.
I am hoping to create a wardrobe that is thoughtful and practical with just a little bit of #sewfrosting on the side.
By My Hand = Curated + Made.
DOES THIS SOUND FAMILIAR?
I was never one to really follow the fashion trend that happened to be “in” whilst I was growing up. I either dressed for myself or followed a slightly different/alt trend (hello Buffalo Girls of the 80’s).
This continued until my late 20’s and then for lots of reasons, I lost sight of who I was when it came to fashion. Oh I still didn’t follow the latest trends – ok maybe a little but did lose sight. Putting on weight, being self-conscious etc were probably the main reasons.
Forward a number of years, I discovered sewing (again).
Making my clothes allows me to express who I am. I found that sewing allows me to make unique outfits and that I feel great with wearing something that I have made.
I also get a wardrobe that I love and enjoy wearing.
These days, I dress for myself – again.
