So I don't think I've talked much about how I learned to sew.
I promise this will go somewhere so just hang in there :)
I first learned how to sew in school making pin cushions, draw string bags, and such. I did like it but never did much with it until I was in my senior year in high school. I was very into anime and Japan and after a bit of saving I was able to go to an Anime Convention. I was with a few friends of mine and some friends of friends. One of these girls had brought with her an Asian Ball Jointed doll named Blaize. I was instantly hooked! These dolls were unlike any I had seen before, so detailed and they were so customizable. When I got home I instantly went to google finding doll after doll that I would love to own. But after searching I found one I had to have.
She was a Dollzone Shoyo and I knew I had to have her. So after saving up for what seemed like ages she was mine! I named her Maiya and it was the start of my collection.
When she finally got home I realized she had no clothes and when I looked online a shirt alone was $10 and that was cheap. So I dug out my old sewing skills and started hand sewing basic dresses. I started to see that I really liked sewing and I started to try my hand at patterns that were free off the internet. After a while I was getting pretty good and I decided to sell some of my items.
