BY BRIGID OESTERLING

Her work is innovative and, these unique pieces are both delicate and bold.

BY BURKE BREWER
@ VOL 20 ON AUG 18, 2016

In Size Doesn’t Matter When You Make Your Own Clothes at PechaKucha Night Knoxville Vol. 20, Owner Burke Brewer shares how sewing transformed her love of her body, forced her to consider the consequences of buying clothing, and finally why everyone should take up the art of garment sewing. 

Modern Seamstress was created to empower women - to teach them to love their bodies and delight in dressing their bodies. Women fight a war every day for healthy body image, and most of the stress comes from the fashion industry and mass produced clothing.
