My full name is Namitha, though I commonly go by Nami. I’m twenty-one years old, and I live in NYC. I am currently completing my senior year in college at New York University. Following my graduation in May 2016, I will be working in research at the Wills Eye Hospital in Philadelphia, PA. Cosplay, sewing, and crafting are my hobbies and my passion.
My grandmother taught me how to sew when I was around seven years old, and I have been actively sewing since 2008 and I am primarily self taught. I would not be where I am today without the help of the fashion teacher from my high school, Ms. Ware, who took the time out of her day to answer my questions about sewing even though I did not take her class until my senior year.
I sought more information about sewing once I got into cosplay. In the quest to make my own costumes based off of the characters from media that I liked, I spent lots of time looking up various tutorials and learning how to use patterns.
Now, I am working on creating more challenging and elaborate projects. I want to create intricate works that I will be proud of forever, unlike in the past where I have looked back on my work and cringed at unfinished seams, or sloppy pattern work.
I started this blog in order to keep myself organized and motivated as I work on projects, and I hope to also create a resource that others can easily use to create amazing pieces of their own.
