Hello sewing enthusiasts!

IMG_76911

My name is Maggie and I am the creator of Sew MaggieJean, a shop for custom apparel and accessories affectionately handmade by yours truly! Sewing has always been my biggest passion thanks to my talented dad and my grandmother, who actually opened her own handmade teddy bear company and gave me my first lessons in the craft. In college, I took several costuming classes through the theater department and eventually decided to turn my favorite hobby into a career choice! I obtained two Design degrees from the Fashion Institute in LA and had the unique opportunity to create my own childrenswear collection for their annual runway show. It was a truly amazing experience! Upon graduating, I joined the Costuming Department for the Walt Disney Company where I worked for a number of years with their Character Development and Manufacturing team. While this was also a wonderful experience my entrepreneurial spirit led me to venture off on my own and thus, Sew MaggieJean was created! Please consider following me on this journey by subscribing to my blog posts, checking out my Etsy page, or adding me on Instagram at @sewmaggiejean.

Cheers to my fellow seamstresses, small business owners, handmade apparel lovers, and anyone else that stumbles upon this site!
