Hello!!! And welcome to my blog! My name is Vatsla and I am absolutely and completely in love with everything sewing, pattern making, and Fashion Design
This is me, hiding behind a bouquet of cake pops (Yumm). Typically you will find me hiding Behind The Seams.. I started my blog Fashion Behind The Seams in January of 2015. The name of my blog pretty much sums up my sewing personality. I am that person who would rather be in the workshop behind the scenes than the front row of a fashion show. To me fashion is not about glamour, runways or designer labels. To me fashion is an expression.. and I express myself through fashion by not only wearing it, but also creating it.
Last year I participated in a Ready To Wear fast, abstaining from buying any garments. It was a pretty amazing journey, that I documented in this end of year post
I am a wife, mom, fashion designer, teacher, and freelance pattern making. I mostly sew for myself but I do contract pattern making for other companies. I also teach fashion design at a local college. I love the simple things in life. I aim to live simply and share my love of sewing. I started my blog because I wanted to inspire others to sew.
I would love to hear from you. If you are a fellow designer, sewist, a newbie, an aspiring fashion designer… drop me a line if you have a question or just to say hi!
I have a sewing Q&A group where I answer sewing related questions/ share sewing inspiration with other sewists. I would love for you to join me there!
