I’m from San Diego, California where I still reside today! I do a few things other than sewing. I write a personal style fashion blog called These Days, have a part time job, and I’m a student. In general I’m a DIY kind of girl, but other than that I like to play the piano, video games, and spend time on the computer.

How-To: Sewing a Built-In Bra with Cups


I’m a huge fan of clothes that simplify my life. It was a revelation, over a decade ago, when I tried on a store-bought tank top with a built-in shelf bra — it was so comfortable, easy to wear, and it never showed tacky bra straps! Inspired by some of my favorite yoga tops and vintage bathing suits with built-in bras, I’ve been experimenting with building shelf bras with cups (for more support and shape) into tanks, t-shirts, and bodysuits (here’s one of my first maillots from last summer).

I was born and live in Munich, the capital of Bavaria, in Germany. It’s most well known for the Oktoberfest, but honestly, that is the one thing I like least about my wonderful city. Currently I am attending Esmod International Fashion School and am just about finished with my first year. I am however, for a fashion student, relatively disinterested in current fashion. Instead, I’m hoping to become a costume designer after I graduate.
