Zoe Livana means life goddess in greek. It’s a name that gives me inspiration and feels nice on the tongue.

This blog chronicles my sewing projects.

When I first started blogging, I would have said that I mainly like to sew with Vogue patterns, but in 2013 especially, I became acquainted with many indie designers such as Megan Nielsen, Deer and DoeColette patterns, and Victory Patterns, and I’ve fallen in love.

A little bit about the non-sewing-related me: I’m very interested in urban development and implementing new technologies in the city to bring the ‘countryside’ back into the city, for instance with vertical farming. I think gardening and crafting are underestimated in the west, in our industrialized day and age. A lot of us have become nothing more than passive consumers, not knowing where our food and products come from, how it’s made and how it gets to us. We are kept in the dark about so many aspects of the supply chain and the food chain, and that’s the way industry likes it because if we knew exactly what goes into the making of a McDonald’s hamburger, we probably would never want to eat one again (actually, I don’t eat there at all unless absolutely necessary).
