What type of sewing machine do you use?
I use a Bernina 765 SE (most similar to the Bernina 770). I love my sewing machine, but definitely looking back could have easily gone with a lower end Bernina unit. I learned how to sew on a Bernina 330 and would highly recommend that machine – it’s well priced, a workhorse and all around a great machine!
Do you have a serger?
I do and I love it! The Bernina 450 serger is a huge lifesaver for me. I also love that it rarely requires any sort of adjustments. It serges perfectly at the standard tension for most fabrics. Even though it’s more expensive than some other sergers, it was worth every penny.
Are you #teamrotary or #teamscissors?
Most definetly #teamrotary. In fact, I’ve never used scissors to cut out a garment! I love this Olfa Rotary Cutter in 45MM. The safety feature on it is key because I am super clumsy. I use a self healing cutting mat which is really worth the money for your cutting table.
Are you #teamcutitout or #teamtrace?
I’ve been a team of both, but I am now a convert to #teamcutitout. I just stock up on scotch tape and am a happy camper! I also recommend PDF Plotting for printing out your patterns on A0 paper. They ship and it’s super convenient! Before when I was a member of #teamtrace I used this Swedish Tracing Paper – it’s sewable and also really easy to iron as well.
How do you curl your hair??
I get asked this question all the time! I have a super simple hair routine – I will warn you it involves washing my hair every day. My favorite shampoo and conditioner is the DryBar Charcoal Shampoo and Conditioner. I use the DryBar 1.25″ Curling Iron to curl my hair in 5 sections and then run my fingers through it. Ta da! I also love my Dyson Blowdryer which saves me tons of time.
