About Me

About me:

Hi, I'm Quana, a wife, mother and a transplanted northerner residing in the south.  I love to sew and collect sewing patterns, my goal is to have a stylish, well fitting wardrobe that I've handmade. 

What I like to sew:

As a plus sized sewer, I work hard at fitting the garments I sew to ensure they fit and are flattering.  I enjoy sewing dresses, tops and skirts.   My goal is to recreate classic looks and silhouettes in addition to what's trending and make it figure flattering for my body type.  Right now I'm learning how to alter patterns and make adjustments to my ready to wear clothes. 


I really have to credit my Facebook sewing groups, Youtube, Craftsy classes, sewing blogs and pattern review sites for keeping me motivated.   Those resources are invaluable and they continually help me along.  There's a world of helpful people out there waiting to assist you and that's just what I needed.  I haven't joined any guilds or community sewing groups yet, but I plan to!
