About Us



Hi, I am Daniela, the blogger behind On the Cutting Floor.

I am a former ESL teacher and volunteer firefighter with a love for sewing.  My dad, a former tailor’s assistant taught me how to use my first sewing machine 9 years ago.  Our first project together was a strapless dress with a full circle maxi skirt.  I kept that dress for a long time

He also taught me how to draft my first project.  I was so enlightening that I always felt empowered to make my own garments, from scratch.

I started this blog in 2014 and it quickly become my passion: I love sharing PDF Sewing patterns and sewing tips that I find useful and practical for the community.

My personal style is casual and modern, with a mix of feminine and masculine.

Please, feel free to contact me if you have any questions





Here I am with my little man
