Episode 8

sarah mckay

As a small person living in a tall world, Sarah has a great story to share about finally being able to wear clothes that fit her properly.

She also wanted to get away from fast fashion so learning how to sew meant she was able to achieve both of these goals. We talk about Indie patterns she’s tried, the sewing community and what it was like attending Camp Stitch with a bunch of other Aussie sewists. Yes, it was everything you are thinking right now and then some!
