I’m a 50-something, post-mastectomy woman who’s trying to figure out how to sew for and style my new body. Along the way, I hope to make a helpful resource for others.

When I’m not sewing, I teach at a community college, take care of my dog and hang out with my husband and friends. Aside from sewing, I enjoy paper crafts, watercolor and have started making shoes.

My cancer diagnosis was in October, 2016 (DCIS & IDC, HERS2+, ER+). I had 6 rounds of chemo (TCHP) and a bilateral mastectomy in April, 2017. The post-surgery biopsy showed no evidence of disease! (Wow! I’m so grateful!) I’m on Herceptin until October 2017 and Femara for 5 years.
