Hi! I was born in USSR, growing up in post-soviet-collapse-tough-ninties, nowdays living in capitalistic ;) Ukraine. My Mom was sewing for me and my sister, so we never looked like kids around. At that time I thought it was a thing showing off how poor we were. I grew up and started sewing because this was the only affordable way to dress for me. Now I do it because I love it. Not long ago I have fallen in love with the 50's. I draft my patterns based on old Soviet sewing books.
