Okay, I know what you are thinking…
It’s true. I don’t really know how to sew. I have ZERO experience in designing clothes.
What I do have is a lifelong love of clothes, style and learning. I also have my grandma’s sewing machine. This is the game changer. My grandma is the single biggest inspiration for this project. As a kid, I would tell my grandma what clothes I wanted. We would go over fabrics and then she would make the clothes. My love for having my own style (whether good or bad) has remained with me throughout my life. The Hyson carries on the name of my grandpa’s fishing boat but this project of making clothes is meant to capture the spirit of my relationship with my grandma.
