About Dana

I have a B.F.A. in Fashion Design, emphasis on garment construction. I've been sewing for over a decade now with numerous awards under my belt in both the fashion and costuming.

I started off as a self-taught seamstress over a decade ago, with a dream of one day making costumes for the big screen. I continually strive to learn and grow as a seamstress by making high quality, competition level pieces and showing them at various competitions across the United States. I believe that garments should be just as beautiful on the inside as they are on the outside and that it's always worth it to spend extra time making them that way. Taking what's on paper and bringing it to life is the ultimate source of fun and creativity for me, and I'd love to teach my skill set with others who share the same passion.

Whether you are a beginner sewer or would like to refine your skills to make beautiful clothing, I believe I could be a valuable asset to you.

Sewing

I have a BFA in Fashion design, emphasis on garment construction. I started as a self-taught seamstress and refined my skills while in college. As an award winning seamstress in both fashion and costuming, I understand the value of quality craftsmanship and strive to teach that to others. As a beginner, you will learn the ins and outs of the sewing machine as well as practical stitches to get you started. For more advanced sewers, I will teach you high quality finishing techniques elevate your garments. I am also an experienced tailor so learning how to properly fit your pieces is an art I can teach you as well.
