laurenssThis week on the RLD podcast we have sewing blogger of Baste & Gather and owner/creator of Pattern Workshop, Lauren Dahl. I first met Lauren when I stumbled across her blog during my first venture into sewing blogs. I immediately fell in love with her blog and started stalking following all things Lauren. I got to know her a bit more once I enrolled into her amazing class, Pattern Workshop. She’s just as awesome and down-to-earth as she portrays on her blog. On this episode you’ll hear all about her life, how she got started with her blog and also:

  • What she did before she created Pattern Workshop.
  • Her background and how PW got started.
  • How and why she started Momiform Makeover.
  • Body issues in the sewing community.
  • Exercise and health topics after baby.
  • Postpartum bodies and the realness of life.
  • Her advice to new sewing bloggers.
