Hi! I’m Raven, I’m a sewing, fashion and DIY lover! I blog about all of my makes (yes, I make everything) and offer tips for newbies right here and on Instagram (@ravenmaureen_)! I’m obsessed with prints (I like solids too) and 60s and 70s fashion. I would describe my personal style somewhere at the crossroads of Zara, J.Crew, Madewell, Free People and Anthropologie. Let’s just say if they all had a baby – it would be me! I’m a total bohemian babe!
I’ve been sewing since high school (many moons ago), but I didn’t consistently start sewing until about 4 years ago when I started my Etsy shop. I’ve since closed my shop, but I won’t rule out owning another business.
I grew up in New York City and then we moved to the South when I was a pre-teen. YIKES! So if you ever watch my Instagram stories you might hear me say either “y’all” or “guys.” What can I say? I interchange them! Have the two cities influenced my style and personality? I’d say absolutely!
Other random facts about me?
- I still live in the South! (but I go to New York at least once a year)
- I LOVEEEE pizza!
- I’m a cat mom.
- My favorite city is New Orleans.
- Sometimes I refurbish furniture.
- I graduated from Hampton University.
- My favorite color is green.
I hope you enjoy my sewing corner of the world and say hello! XO
