My name is Cat and I am a self taught seamstress. I am twenty one years old and I started sewing in 2016, when I decided to make my own costume to wear to a local convention. Since then, I have worked on personal projects non-stop, learning through the process. I use a mixture of online research, from historical evidence to other seamstress' testimonials, and primary sources such as sewing books. I interned at Prangsta Costumiers in early 2017, and attended Morley College where I completed Costume Design and Making: Victorian and Edwardian.

For daily and weekly updates, I am most active on my Instagram, https://www.instagram.com/katisinthebag/?hl=en.
