Here’s what I want for you:
- I want you to spend more time sewing, less time altering patterns.
- I want you to spend more time creating, less time fixing.
- I want you to make clothes that fit your curves and the way you live.
- I want you to be independent of the limited selection available (for real women with real curves) in ready-to-wear clothing and in commercial patterns.
And when you do find something off-the-rack, I want to show you how to make it fit your body so you can wear it feeling comfortable and confident.
By the way, I’m Katrina Kellam. Welcome to Katrina Kay Creations. I have a passion for helping women get to a place where they don’t have to DEPEND on retailers or commercial pattern companies for clothes that fit their curves.
I’m really glad you stopped by and here’s what else I want you to know:
There’s no reason why you shouldn’t look and feel good in your clothes, regardless of your size and shape.
My goal is to teach you how to get the results you desire from your sewing – clothes that fit your body without the fuss of complicated pattern alterations. I also want to teach you how to take the store-bought clothes already in your closet, whose fit you’re not totally satisfied with, and make them fit like they were custom-made for you.
Who am I to do this? I’m someone who has sewn for others for years, but never wanted to sew for myself because I knew my body wasn’t an “average” size. And because I knew this, I also knew whatever I made for myself from commercial patterns would require many, many alterations before I could actually sew it and wear it.
If you’ve ever felt this way, then you really are in the right place.
On a less serious note, I know you really don’t want to know that I have an Associate’s and Bachelor’s degree in fashion or that I worked in the fashion industry for 10 years as a patternmaker. I mean, who cares? Right? Well, then I won’t tell you any of those things. Get it? Okay, moving on…
If this is your first time here, then you can start right here. You’ll be able to see at a glance what kind of information I’ve created for you. And if you want to introduce yourself in the comments, I’d love to meet you.
Thanks again for stopping by!
