Episode #147: Taylor McVay of Blueprints for Sewing

June 17th, 2019

On today's episode of the While She Naps podcast we're talking about running an indie sewing pattern business with my guest Taylor McVay of Blueprints for Sewing.

Taylor McVay is a designer, artist, and educator. She creates sewing patterns for unique, architecture inspired garments. Along with running Blueprints, Taylor teaches fashion design, pattern making, and sewing in the Boston area. Taylor creates one of a kind garments, experiments with techniques like weaving and embroidery, and loves to repurpose and recycle textiles. She spends a lot of her time thinking, writing, and talking about ‘slow fashion’.

Taylor lives not too far from me and she was able to come to Wellesley and spend some time with me in my studio to record this episode which was such a treat.
