Me – Frougie Fashionista

Hi! I’m the Frougie Fashionista! I’m a thirty something wife to an amazing man and stepmom to two great kids. As much as I sometimes wish that I could sew all day, my professional background is in Civil Engineering and I’ve recently branched out into 3D design work and I work full time in that capacity. Let’s see what else… OH! I have an adorable yorkie, whom I spoil terribly, much to my husbands dismay.

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″

Feel free to contact me if you have questions at and I’ll do my best to answer!
