Meet the Designers: Sunni from A Fashionable Stitch

Pixie-Dust-1

Hello there! I'm Sunni and that's pronounced like the weather forecast, sunny. I'm the gal behind A Fashionable Stitch. I'm a pretty obsessive sewing lady and have a pretty strong fetish for fine apparel fabric. To prove it, I purchased a brick and mortar fabric store this past December. You know what they say, "She who dies with the most fabric, wins." I came to the realization a few years ago that what I would love to sew and what I wear on a daily basis are two different things and so, I'll be making jazzed up versions of my daily uniform. What can I say? Many times practicality wins me over. If I had to define my style, I would say that I'm a prep. I love preppy looks, so I'm sure you'll be seeing your fair share from me. I am a former classically trained flute player and now I spend my days running a fabric shop (both online and in person), keeping up with my ever growing list of sewing projects and living the life with my mister. I couldn't be happier to be participating in Project Sewn, especially with all these lovely ladies! Here's to February and the lovely mini wardrobe I'll have at the end of it. Hip Hip Hooray!

  3. It's hard to choose who to cheer for with so much talent, but I kind of feel like I should pick you just because of your former profession. Flute players for the win! :D

  4. I'm torn because I already follow half of the bloggers in this lineup, so I won't know who to cheer for! But I really love Sunni because her blog posts are incredibly informative (not just "look at what I made" but like real advice and topics sewing people want to know!) So I know she'll do awesome. I'm really psyched for all the ladies, and this is going to be fun to watch.

  5. I'm really excited to see what you make! It's because of your tutorials I'm hopefully going to be brave enough to try sewing with tartan this year. :-)

  7. You ladies are all the sweetest! I say, vote for your favorite makes (and that may not be mine, so no worries!). I'm just so happy to be apart of this and so happy to have a little push in the right direction for sewing again. Feels like I haven't sewn anything for myself in ages and that has been the most rewarding part of this whole thing for me. Yay! Here's to all of us!
