MMy name is Lesley. I’m a brooklyn, ny based fashion blogger and photographer. My blog, The Creative Cookie, is about fashion and other inspirational things. I love writing posts about my thrift store adventures, which usually include finding items to sew with. I always try to use vintage patterns and/or fabrics when I sew. Once complete, these are my favorite garments to wear because they were created from materials that have gracefully survived throughout time. I tend to make simple dresses, skirts, and blouses, but I wish to learn more; I’m certain that seeing all of your fab work on this blog will inspire me to do so.

I’m super excited to be a part of the Sew Retro community!
