What inspired you to start sewing? In kindergarten I was fascinated with a classmates clothing. Her mother was an artist and seamstress. I spent a week with my friend while my parents vacationed and got to see her space and was in awe. Under her supervision I made a jumper. That is all it took, I was hooked. My parents thought it was a bit strange when I asked for a sewing machine for Christmas at six.

What is your favorite B&G piece to sew?I love sewing the swim and Jolie's. Swim is fun in the sun. Jolie's because I believe every little girl needs a tutu.
