Hi, I’;m Daniela?and I blog at On the Cutting Floor. I am very excited to join the BERNINA family as a?Brand Ambassador and to share my work with you!

Sewing has quickly become one of my biggest passions. I learned how to sew nine years ago when I found myself stressed by my teaching job; I thought sewing will be a relaxing and creative way to spend my time out of the classroom.

My dad, a former tailor’;s assistantaccent pillow case baby canvas baby decoration, helped me to understand how to use the sewing machine. We also share a passion for drafting patterns; so I immediately starting doing my own designs.

The first pattern my dad and I made was a strapless dress with a semi circle skirt. I still remember how great I thought it was to draft the skirt just by using your own measurement. I kept the black and white, cotton sateen dress for the longest time!

In 2013, I opened my first online store. I quickly realized that I love the challenge of making something new from scratch, more than creating the same garment over an over again. That is why I decided to move from selling clothes, to creating PDF patterns online.

I first started with baby clothing; it was cute and fast to make, plus it was way cheaper since you can make something great with about a yard of fabric!

It was a natural progression to start making PDF patterns for women. The first one I launched was two years ago for Mother’;s day. The dress was named in honor to my mom and it was a huge success. From then on, I have been making feminine and modern clothing for women.

I love basic garments with a twist; unexpected pleats or a nice detail that makes it different and unique.

It is always exciting to share a new design in the sewing community and I am looking forward to do so here as well!

The designs that you will find from me here are simple garments that you can add easily to your wardrobe.?I hope you like them all!
