Hi, I’m Lauryn. 14 years old. From the bay area. Gorgeous state of California. Love fashion. Books. Design. Art. Photography. Travel.
I started sewing when I was 10 at a summer class at Stone Mountain & Daughter in Berkeley. On the real though, I did not like it at first. Other kids were faster, didn’t have to undo their stitches, or go super slow to make the easiest thing: a straight line! It was just a summer hobby. Didn’t really take it seriously. But then…as I took more classes and practiced, making skirts and tops instead of pillow cases, I began enjoying it more. Now I sew at home on the weekends with a Euro-Pro sewing machine (a gift from my aunt) and a Brother 1034D serger. I’m still using patterns, but my #summer2017goal is to create my own designs/patterns. Sucks that my mom can’t sew, so I pretty much do it all myself. But she does help me with my photos in Photoshop.
For some of my posts, I’ve combined my interests like fashion and books. I try to find a character I identify with or that reminds me of one of my friends. Sometimes I just pretend I’m the stylist or costume designer for the movie of version of the book.
My goal is to post once a week on Thursdays. I hope you enjoy my blog!
