About

Hey there.  I’m Charlotte.  I sew, I bake, and use far too many compound adjectives (and commas. . .and parenthetical asides).  When I’m not here, writing about sewing, consumption, creativity, and the maker’s community, I’m outside sewing, consuming, pretending to be creative, and doing the general making business.  It’s not that hard, is it?

I’m a student, originally from New York City, but kicking about in Washington until May of next year, which is when I apparently have to confirm some Major Life Decisions (caps!).  In the mean time, I occupy myself by thinking about sewing theory, hunting down DC’s best no-fuss cocktail, and appeasing my feline overlords.  Oh, you should meet them, lest they revolt against me:

Seam Ripped is a bit of a non-traditional sewing blog.  You probably won’t see pattern reviews here, though I might occasionally post crappy iPhone photos of my makes on my dressform.  The odds of me posting a tutorial are slim to none, but I am just self-absorbed enough to post the occasional video.  I try to just talk about sewing and things sewing adjacent, but we’ll occasionally find ourselves far afield.

Stick around, if you’d like.  I promise you’ll have a good time.  A good-enough time?  You won’t hurl your computer across the room?  Fine.  I make no guarantees.
