Hi Fashionistas!

I hope that you are having a fashionably fabulous week.

You know me based on all the garments I make and share with you, but today I want to take you behind the seams and share my sewing journey with you. I also want to share with you four women who have been an inspiration to me. I’ll be sharing with you, in chronological order, the women I met and how they inspired me. I hope you enjoy 🙂

Meet Erica Bunker, Tara Davis, Erin Bohanon and Suzy Furrer. These are four women who inspired me and continue to inspire me in my sewing journey.

I will be doing a five-part series to tell you my story. My story of sewing. How it all started and how I ended up where I am now,  spending days in my studio creating, when just a few years ago, I was writing useless code in a nerdy cubicle.

I cannot possibly squeeze all their amazing work and my story into this one blog post, so I will write about them one at a time. I met them, either virtually or in person starting in 2008

2008– Erica Bunker –  Sewing Blogger, self-proclaimed sewing goddess

2009– Tara Davis, my teacher in 2009, now my colleague

2011– Suzy Furrer- My teacher in design school, director of Apparel Arts.

2012– Erin Bohanon- My previous “boss”, now my mentor and friend

I cannot wait to share my story with you and how I was impacted by these wonderful ladies. Stay tuned for part two of this series: Behind The Seams- Women who inspire me.

See you soon! I still have to show y’all my scary prom dress turned Minnie mouse DIY dress.

XO-

Vatsla.

 

 

 

 

 

5 Comments on Behind The Seams- Women who Inspire Me

  1. How neat! I am taking one of Suzy’s Craftsy classes right now! In fact, I keep buying her classes even thought I haven’t finished all of them yet. I really like her method of teaching. It makes things really easy to understand and accomplish. I look forward to what you have to say about her and the other wonderful ladies you mentioned.
