YOU: 👋🏼 I’m Brooks Ann Camper. I teach custom sewing, make custom wedding dresses, and like to wear shirts with animals on them. I’m 5’ tall (okay, 4’11) and am based in Hillsborough, NC USA. I have a Masters Degree in Costume Production which landed me jobs sewing for Broadway shows, the Rockettes, the Muppets…👀
Though I sew professionally, I have pretty much zero experience or interest in “Fashion sewing”, which uses standard sizes. I’m a different type of #sewingpro
who designs and sews only for individuals. “Custom sewing” is fun, freeing, nerdy, and I 💗 it! 🤓 (For more about the difference between fashion sewing, home sewing, and custom sewing, find my post “Two Myths of Learning to Make Your Own Sewing Patterns”. 💥Link in bio💥)
Currently, my jam is teaching! I teach a Couture Hand Sewing Intensive at Camp Workroom Social as well as my own interactive online courses.
Oh! Did I mention I make one-of-a-kind custom couture wedding dresses and blog my #behindtheseams
process for all you sewing nerds?
During the month of March, while blogging the story of a custom floral overdress for a bride name Cameron (👰🏼newest post linked in bio👰🏼), I’ll also be teaching my Intro eCourse “Skirt Skills” #coutureforbeginners
(✂️link in bio✂️) all while creating/producing a ⭐️brand new⭐️ follow-up eCourse “Top Class”. I hope you enjoy following along!
Ah! Ok! I could chat all day but I better get back to it! Today is only Day 1 of #MarchMeetTheMaker
! Thanks for hosting @joannehawker. I’m excited to meet other makers…
