About Ariana Bauer

ABOUT ARIANA BAUER

I founded The American Seamstress and Cosplay Sewing School as a way to share my gift and love of sewing and costuming. I have been making my own clothing since I was 6 years old. Sewing is my lifelong passion, a craft I could not live without. My grandmother taught me to sew when I was 6 years old and I really never stopped. I believe that sewing garments can also help us unlock some love for our bodies. Our clothes need to fit us – not the other way around!

I have worked in bridal and special occasion dressmaking and tailoring. I currently teach sewing, machine embroidery, and quilting at MADE in St. Louis, MO.

ABOUT COSPLAY

Although I discovered cosplay later in my life, costuming has always been a passion of mine. I love how being in costume makes you feel and how cosplay gives you the freedom to express yourself in a whole new way.

In many conversations I have had with cosplayers, it seems sewing is one of the more intimidating skills to take on. There is so much to learn and so many different skills that need honed. My goal with Cosplay Sewing School is to take the intimidation out of sewing through simple classes that teach you to sew with small goals. Baby steps take the scary out of anything! I hope that you choose to learn to sew and I wish you the best in your costuming endeavors.

Why Learn to Sew

Benefits of Learning to Sew

Why is sewing so important ? The answer is pretty obvious – we all wear clothing!

Whether you are making baby clothes to sewing challenging cosplay characters, clothing is a part of our daily life and should be a fun and happy part of it!

Learning to sew gives you the ability to make your own clothing. This opens up a whole new world in your wardrobe and the wardrobe of anyone else you sew for. I sew for my husband and 2 teen boys all of the time!

WE ALL NEED CLOTHES
From babies to husbands to kiddos to you – we all need clothing. Learning to sew gives you the ability to make the clothes that fit your body.

CLOTHES NEED TO FIT YOU
Most clothes and costumes that you can buy are designed for a single body type. The problem is that we are all different – and that is wonderful! It’s not your body that is the problem – it is the clothing. When you make your clothing and costumes, you end up with garments that fit your body and make you look great.

IT IS EXPENSIVE TO GET CUSTOM MADE & COMMISSION
Custom made clothing and costumes are great, but it can also be expensive and take a long time to get your clothing. When you sew, you don’t need to have your clothing custom made when you are the one doing the sewing!

MAKE YOUR OWN EVERYTHING
Why stop at just making clothing? Try your hand at quilting, embroidery, bag making, and so much more!
