My name is Nikki. I am writing to you from sunny (most of the time) Northern California. I am lucky enough to be in the center of both San Francisco, Berkley and Sacramento. I have been toying with sewing since I was about 5, bugging my mom for scraps! However it wasn’t until about 3 years ago when I was inspired to make a Renaissance dress, undergarments and all. This was my first experience following a pattern and have been in love with sewing ever since.
My main passion is historical/ fantasy (pirates, fairies) costuming. However I have recently discovered vintage dress making! Since then, my head as well as my craft room has been full of a mess of patterns and fabric!
I currently run the blog Retro-Phile. Don’t know what a retrophile is? Well… Hop on over and check it out, as well as current projects and all things retro.
I look forward to sharing my passion with you all!
