A little about me: I’m Lindy, and I’m like many of you: I like to sew, knit, crochet— pretty much anything to have the kinds of beautiful, unique clothes I crave. I’ve been making clothes since I was 5 or 6 years old, teaching myself to knit and sew. There is something to be said for learning the hard way (trial and error), but why not benefit from not only my past experiences, but also from the projects I’m currently working on? I’ll be showing you how I create my own clothes, whether I’m sewing a garment from scratch, altering or recycling an existing item, or simply re-thinking how I use a particular garment in an outfit.
You say you don’t sew or knit, and truth be told, you have no interest whatsoever in any kind of -cycling? I’ll bet you do some shopping! So you can still have fun (and learn a thing or two) following my adventures, because I’m including my ideas for smart clothes shopping, color palettes, and wardrobe creation too.
A little about my work: So far, my work combines photography, color, and knitting, thusly: I do a lot of photography work, including creating montages from my photos, then I create color palettes inspired by my photo/graphic designs, which translate into my line of unique yarns and knitwear patterns. Uniting all this diversity is my writing, primarily how-tos based on my own personal projects and insights thereof.
Hire me! I’m currently writing web-content articles, as well as more magazine articles, and I’d welcome more writing opportunities. Specifically (and ideally), I’d love to work with you on project tutorials, especially involving making over/upcycling clothes; see my Makeover Monday posts here on CYC for examples.

I’d love to connect with you on any or all of these pages, by the way. I’ll see you there!

Lindy, because my wife is a seamstress, I find you very easy to read …but, also quite enjoyable! 🙂 ~Paul

Thank you, Paul! I do try to include much more than sewing-related things here, even the occasional essay— hopefully there is something here for almost everyone. (We all wear clothes, right? And in the course of doing your work, I would think you’ve seen many examples of people whose style of dressing was holding them back from success.) I really enjoy your daily quotes, by the way! ; )

Hi – Trying to find the article you did on how to organize your closet, but without success – also cannot find your email address to send this message without commenting. Can you please send me the post link you did? Thanks.

Salut! I’ve got 2 posts on closet organizing. One has a link to a RealSimple article (click here to read that post); the other is the one I did about my own closet (click here to read that one).
I’m trying to keep the number of categories under control, so articles like these are usually found under “General”. Je suis désolée that you had so much trouble finding what you were looking for!
I’m glad you mentioned the e-mail address issue— I hadn’t realized that wasn’t visible to readers. I’ll check that out here in a minute and see if I can fix it. Meanwhile, you can e-mail me at email@example.com.
Merci et a bientot,
