Sew Hopeful

Clarkston, MI

I've been sewing on and off most of my life. Ice Skating costumes, Prom Dresses, Regency Ball gowns, Victorian gowns--I just love pretty things to wear and find it even more fun to make my own. I also love drawing and painting, backpacking, RVing, and gardening.

Craftsy Member since April 2012
