I started this blog in 2008. In the beginning, Dixie DIY was more of a personal space and since then the content has been refined and it’s now less like a journal.
I’ve been sewing since I was 10 but I didn’t get a real sewing machine until I was 15. I finally upgraded to a better machine, learned how to use a serger, and started drafting my own patterns. You can check out some of my completed projects both modern and costuming.
These days I work with a great group of ladies designing sewing patterns for Blank Slate Patterns.
I’ve also started a YouTube channel to document my historical costuming adventures.
Follow me on instagram for in-progress pictures and more!
