Hi, I’m Nikki

I’m so glad you’re here because that means you have an interest in sewing, fashion and creating your own clothes! Which is what I love…

I’m a Stay at Home Mom that pattern tests for a few indie pattern designers and I’ve become a Brand Ambassador for a few of them as well. I like to support size inclusive designers and pretend I’m fashionable. If you look at my closet, there’s lots of blacks and greys with some splashes of blue/teal/mint, purple and other royal colors. I’m a solids girl at heart, but I try to push myself to use prints more often. It’s more likely that you’ll find me in all black with pastel purple hair than in those pretty florals that saturate the market.

I also sew (sometimes) for my tween son, toddler daughter and (rarely) husband. Plus a sprinkling of other family & friends and some crafty/home decor stuff. I don’t blog about those often but I do try to mix it up sometimes.

Have you heard of House of Curves? A year ago, I started gathering some info from some of my favorite curvy and plus bloggers to get my Pattern Testing 101 series started and it turned into something amazing that I never could have foreseen. These people have become some of my best friends and it’s been a wild ride! Go check out what we’re up to on our very own website: House of Curves
