Where I Sew – Megan Nielsen

on Jul 25, 2014 in Where I Sew | 69 comments

My name is Megan Nielsen and I am a ready to wear turned sewing pattern designer. I love creating sewing patterns with fashion forward design that fit into a woman’s every day wardrobe. As a mom of three, I know the challenges of sewing for a changing body, so my line of patterns also includes the only stylish maternity and nursing sewing patterns on the market. I like to think of sewing as “fashion you Make!”, and hope that my sewing patterns will help make sewing a more enjoyable and stylish experience.

  4. Ooh I love the Crescent blouse, I’ll be keeping an eye on her website! I am glad I guessed right that she wasn’t a quilter and was clothing oriented when I saw how close her machine and serger were to each other 😉

  21. Changing bodies is important – I’ve had too much of that to deal with and I don’t even have kids – I feel so much sympathy to all the moms out there.

  30. Ooooh – I want a peg board. But you seem to be missing a sewing room standard accoutrement – several feline assistants to act as pattern weights and check your stitches as. they. come. out. from under the needle. : )

    Maybe I could place mine on the peg board.
    Thanks! notwendy gmail
