Day 24 - Tanja Andreeva
My name is Tanja,
and I discovered my real passion for sewing just about two years ago
when I was one of the contestants of Symesterskapet - the Norwegian Sewing Bee
(and somehow managed to win the whole shabam)!
After this experience I decided to pursue this newfound passion of mine,
and was lucky enough to get an internship with Tine Solheim
- one of the judges from the TV-show.
Right now my life is sewing-sewing-sewing 24/7, and I LOVE IT 💖
I also love-love-love teaching & sharing with others,
so I give classes & keep my Instagram profile filled with inspo, tips & tricks😊
Here’s one of my latest projects as an apprentice - a Chanel-inspired jacket and skirt.
This was my first time sewing this kind of jacket,
and I really loved all the hand sewing that went in to it!
Now it is a part of an exhibition at the Oslo City Museum,
which showcases Norwegian design & womens tailoring from 1900 and up until today.
It’s a huge honour to have a look sewn by me in this exhibition!
My best sewing tip
- sew as if you are an explorer,
a child and
a wise elder
all at once 😊
be curious and learn,
and have endless patience with your process.
