I’m Shannon, a nineteen-year-old, Montreal-based science student with a passion for sewing, knitting, and vintage fashion.
I’ve been sewing since I was about six years old, but I only ever sewed I sporadically throughout my childhood and early teenage years, usually sewing clothes that I never ended up wearing.
Later in high school, I realized that there is so often a hidden cost to the environment or human rights when we buy cheap, disposable garments, and I picked up sewing and knitting more seriously as an alternative to today's 'fast fashion'.
I want to build myself a wardrobe that is classic and high quality. I want clothes that I won’t want to get rid of because I put time and effort into them; clothes that won’t fall apart after a few wears; clothes with a story.
And this is where I’ll share these stories; I hope you enjoy them!
