About Me

sew much ado

Hi! I’m Abby and welcome to Sew Much Ado!

I’ve been sewing since I was young, when I used to make myself play skirts (basically just a tube with an elastic casing in the top) that would always mysteriously dissappear (thanks Mom). Maybe they weren’t as cool as I remember them being. Despite her hobby of throwing my play skirts in the garbage, my mom taught me almost everything I know about sewing :).

As I got older, I sewed pretty much all of my dresses for church, and even a wedding dress for a friend. Now that I am a mom to two boys and two girls, my love for sewing has grown even more, as has my fabric stash (yikes!).

I design sewing patterns and share tutorials ranging from DIY to women’s clothing, to children’s clothing. I love not being limited to one “type” of sewing and creating. One of my favorite things about sewing is that the type of projects I create can change with my present interests – it never gets boring!

I love to hear from you all so feel free to comment or email me.  Thanks for visiting!

    I’m looking for patterns for children from newborn to toddlers size. Both girl or boy. I love to try to sew for my daughter. Please send me a pattern for something simple for a newborn to 3 months of age to try. Thanks

  15. Hello Abby, just wanted to let you know I really enjoy your site and you are so inspiring. I do enjoy sewing, but have little time for it – fellow blogger. Because I LOVE what you are all about here, maybe we could coordinate on a sewing project of something very simple that we could make of the same pattern, but different fabric, etc, (seo) and post at the same time to introduce our readers to each other. Just a thought.

    Thanks for the cheerful and happy place you have here.
