Straightgrain is An, a 37-year-old and pattern designer. I got addicted to sewing many years ago, and have not sought treatment since.
I sew mostly for my 7-year old daughter Norah and for my toddler Ava, who can make any creation look pretty.
“Straight grain” is sewing jargon, and refers to the direction in which you place your patterns on the fabric. I named my blog StraightGrain for two reasons. Firstly, the term “straight” expresses well how I like children’s clothing: not complicated and full of campy embellishments, but simple so the fabrics – and the child – get all the attention. Secondly, I really did not have any better ideas.
