Sarah Hambly is a self-taught fashion designer who has been sewing for just 4 years. She learned the craft from her mother and what she could find on YouTube and Pinterest, and kept getting better by trial and error. But even though Sarah's experience in the field is relatively short, she isn't short on skills.
The buying and trying on process can be draining. Even thought it is my job to try on clothes, I have to be in the right mood / mindset to do so. A few things that help me get there are doing my hair and makeup (just posted a tutorial this week). It gives me an instant confidence boost (just be sure not to get any residue on the clothes).
