About Me

Hi, I’m Tiffany of TipStitched (formerly Frougie Fashionista) and I love to sew! I am a thirty-something woman who fell in love with sewing after first trying my hand at it in 2014. As much as I wish that I could sew all day, my professional background is in engineering and I work full time in that capacity. In addition to my day job I’ve started an online clothing store TipStitched that specializes in handmade clothing for the effortlessly stylish woman and her mini me. Some of my other hats include wife (to a great husband who deals with my expanding fabric and pattern stash), stepmom (to two great kids), daughter (of some pretty great parents), sister (to a great sis who requests garments but refuses to be photographed in them), doggie mom (to an aging yorkie). So yeah I stay pretty busy!

Almost 3 years ago I finally checked an item off my bucket list…learn to sew. I had no clue that this lingering interest would turn into an all consuming hobby. I’ve always wanted a hobby but my interest in a variety of things and my tendency to get bored easily has always prevented that. Finally I’ve found something I’m certain I will stick with.

In those three years I have challenged myself and accomplished a few things!

I love to sew with knits mainly because that’s what I like to wear and it’s comfortable. You’ll notice that dresses are my favorite items to sew because they are my favorite to wear. I wear dresses all year long, though it is more challenging in the winter (layering and all). I just love the ease of putting on one piece and having a whole look instead of having to coordinate separates. I also like the ease of sewing tops and skirts, so you’ll see lots of those too. In 2017 I hope to challenge myself with jeans, more pants, coats and more. So hopefully you’ll see those sooner than later.

My measurements (if that helps you with sizing) I had to update these:

Bust: 36″ 38″
Waist: 30″ 33″
Belly Button: 34″ 36″ (I have a gut, not huge but it’s there)
Hips: 40″ 42″
