About

My Early Creation in the 1990's

Designer Of Skimpy Sewing Patterns & Sewing Tutorials

I started selling digital download sewing patterns and offering sewing tutorials on YouTube in 2016. Since then I have turned my passion into teaching my trade and developing an skimpy boutique line of sewing patterns. Now I have over 100 sewing patterns and even more to come.

My plan is to share what was not available to me when I started sewing skimpy in the 1990’s. Each sewing pattern is hand drafted from my original¬† sewing patterns then digitized in Adobe Illustrator. I feel fortunate I¬† have found people to help me with this process through the years. A big thank you to my mentors and friends!

Sewing has turned into a job for me. Technology enables me to be a teacher and step away from my sewing machine. I am delighted to share my trade with you.
my sewing history

I obtained an Associate’s Degree in Commercial Art right after High School. When I graduated from college in the late 80’s I had learned computer graphics on the first Apple computer. Through the years I had to teach myself computer graphics by watching YouTube videos. I love using Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator. 

 

After college I worked in the bar business slinging drinks in Omaha and in San Antonio TX. After moving to Dallas I worked as a House Mom at a couple Gentlemen’s Clubs there. They hired me to sit in the dressing room to keep an eye on the girls and be there gopher. While at work I would sew and design custom clothes for the dancers at the club.

 

A few years later I moved home to the Midwest to raise my family. Fairly soon after the move we opened Basic Tease Boutique in Omaha, NE. Our lingerie store was open for almost 10 years. We closed the store in 2013. It was difficult to compete with online prices and pay the overhead of a brick and mortar retail space. 

 

After the store closed I started selling my skimpy clothes on Etsy and in the local bars in our area. I have been sewing intermittently for over 30 years. Sewing has turned into a job for me. Technology enables me to be a teacher and step away from my sewing machine. I am delighted to share my trade with you.
