When she unpacked each piece, the room filled with “Ooooos” and “Ahhhhs”
The details are incredible. Each stitched so carefully and no corners cut (see what I did there). The dresses have a character of their own and as she laced each bodice, she did so with a rhythm.
How does a full-time graduate student have time to hand make Renaissance dresses from the initial idea to the last stitch?
All because of a passion.
Amanda grew up around sewing and developed a love for creating costumes. When she was younger, her mother often made their Halloween costumes and shared in her passion of sewing with Amanda. With a theatrical background, she experienced a life of costumes and a presence on stage.
Soon, Bodice Babe was born.
It’s incredible how determined the human soul can be. When you have a passion (or two or three), in the pit of all that you are, you have a fire that burns to create wonderful things. And nothing will stop you, not even time.
Amanda has such a wonderful talent, what a joy it is to help her share it with the world.
