STITCHING

Sewing is how Amanda got intersted in making and constructing costumes, originally a self taught stitcher, then reading books on techniques and mentors showing her the ropes she learned more and more, these days she enjoys sewing and making (draping/patterning) 1/2 scale creations based on gowns and renderings by designers.
