Lori V

Girls in the Garden

Hi, I am Lori, from Missouri and I blog at Girls in the Garden.   Yes, a name that is not sewing related but created  after seeing my four daughters helping in my flower gardens.  I started sewing when I was in 7thgrade, influenced by a section in Home Ec.  My mom encouraged my sewing and always did all my un-sewing (it was great!). Favorite garments include – tops, jeans and jackets.  My goal is to sew for my lifestyle and what I really wear.  Fabrics, I love them all, they are so inspiring and I love taking that flat fabric and make it a garment.  My sewing inspiration is really other garment sewists through blogs and social media, it is an amazing community and I am so happy to be a part of it.
