Hi slayers! I am Monica of That’s Sew Monica. I am originally from the Bronx, NY with roots from Ghana, West Africa. I started sewing to honor my mother’s legacy after 10 years of her passing. I actually comes from a lineage of sewers in my family. I host a monthly sewalong #sewyourview on instagram as well as a monthly all day sew with friend #projectsew that takes place in Dallas, TX.
I love fashion and have designed and sketched clothes for years. I am happy that I took up this skill where I am able to express my sense of fashion and style. It is a wonderful feeling to see something in your head come to life.
I can’t really define my style in a word, as I love long flowing dresses, bell sleeves, pussy bows, Ankara (African Wax Print), bright and dark colors, edgy clothing … basically I love everything. So I hope you follow me on my journey and connect with me from time to time.
