About

I remember being almost 14 and still hand sewing dresses for my Cindy (a cheap version of Barbie) and dreaming about being a fashion designer. Not sure what happened the short in between year, but at 15 when I went to high school I completely ditched this dream and started learning programming.

Then in 2008 I bought a sewing machine for Christmas and started sewing bags for me, friends and selling. I was reading more and more sewing blogs, and the Burda website was an important resource for me then, as I started sewing clothes. I had a bad start with the super complex Kasia skirt and a knit blazer (what was I thinking?!) and gave up sewing for a couple of years. But I did extensive research during those years, reading millions of blog posts and then I went back to sewing as a wiser beginner.

I now have a 3 year old who is keeping me from sewing/knitting/running as much as I want.

I moved to London from Brasov, Romania in September 2013 and I’m struggling with being spontaneous and funny in English🙂

I don’t have any real life sewing friends and I’m happy with the virtual ones I got, but if you’re in central London and want to have coffee/lunch and chat about making stuff, drop me an line :)

In 2008, de Craciun, mi-am facut cadou o masina de cusut. Oferta nu era atat de generoasa atunci ca acum, in afara de Brother si Singer nu gaseai nimc. Sau nu stiam eu de ele. Acum poti alege intre cele doua plus Bernina, Janome, Elna si chiar Silvercrest de la Lidl, daca ai bugetul mic🙂. Buget mic am avut si eu acum 4 ani si mi-am luat o masina Brother LS 2125. Adica cea mai ieftina pe care am gasit-o atunci.

Inca mai cos cu ea, ne-am obisnuit sa lucram impreuna🙂, dar intre timp mi-am luat si o masina de surfilat. Tot Brother, nici aici nu am avut atat de multe optiuni, poate doar uzate. Acum exista pe piata mai multe modele, de la mai multi  producatori.

SINGER 160 Limited Edition

Cat de frumoasa si mai mult ca perfecta poate sa fi aceasta masina!

Masina de cusut am luat-o pentru ca am vrut sa fac genti. Mi s-a pus pata si mi-am luat masina. Prima geanta a iesit chiar mai bine decat ma asteptam si a ajuns undeva la Buzau, parca. Sau o fi fost Bacau? Poza nu e minunata, nu stiam de astea atunci🙂

Dupa ce am mai facut cateva genti, m-am gandit sa trec la haine. Plina de entuziasm, am ales un tipar de fusta cu 11 piese de tipar!!!! Esec total. Daca va intrebati ce e cu atatea semne de exclamare, sa stiti ca 11 e foarte mult.

O persoana inteleapta ar fi inceput cu o fusta dreapta, cu maxim 4 piese. Nu eram inteleapta. Dovada – am continuat cu un sacou din jerse dintr-un Burda 2009. Sacou – piesa vestimentara foarte complicata. Jerse – material elastic cu care nu aveam experienta (de la genti adica) si care facea ce voia el. In special sa se intinda. Ca doar de aia era elastic. Urmarea a fost ca am abandonat cusutul pentru aproximativ un an. De atunci si pana acum am facut ceva rochite, fuste, bluze, pantaloni, si chiar doua paltoane. Poti vedea multe dintre ele pe profilul meu de FB sau BurdaStyle.
