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 ๐Ÿ’–
I also love-love-love teaching & sharing with others, 
so I give classes & keep my Instagram profile filled with inspo, tips & tricks๐Ÿ˜Š

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 scientist, 
a child and 
a wise elder 
all at once ๐Ÿ˜Š
be curious and learn, 
and have endless patience with your process.
