Jennifer started sewing 7 years ago with a $40 machine. She makes costumes that are whimsical and is often inspired by jokes or over the top ideas. She loves to thrift for items to modify and add into designs. Her sewing style is not technical as much as freeform and this adds to the whimsy of her designs.
