Meet the Designers: Gail of Boo+Lu

Hi! I’m Gail and I’m one part of the trio of designers over at Simple Life Pattern Company. You can also find me blogging over at my personal sewing blog, Boo+Lu.

Gail, Simple Life Pattern Company

We are a military family and currently reside in Upstate New York but have lived in some beautiful places, like Pearl Harbor, Hawaii.
I am lucky enough to be a bonus mama to the sweetest boy, Brock, and mama to two beautiful little girls, Layla and Lilly.  
While I learned to hand sew as a child (taught by my mother-in-law in my church’s quilting club) I “rediscovered” the art when I became pregnant with my daughter.
Early on in my sewing journey (during the rediscovery period) I found Simple Life Pattern Company and became enamored with all of the darling little girl dresses. When my second daughter was born in 2017 I joined the SLPco testing team which is when I also started taking courses in pattern drafting. In 2018 I was brought on as Social Media Assistant, and then in 2019 I moved up to the position of designer. Seeing my designs being sewn by so many talented people has been the most rewarding feeling. My husband will tell you that since I’ve started working at SLPco my smile hasn’t left my face, and it’s true. I’ve found my people.
I won’t bore you with too much more so I’ll end with this: I am so honored to have been invited to participate in this season of Project Run and Play. After admiring the work of all of the amazing past designers for years now, I am humbled to now be able to join the PR&P family. Whatever the outcome may be this season, I am so blessed to have been able to participate in the fun!
