Making beautiful dresses isn’t necessary her only goal. According to her artist website, she wants to teach people how to sew.

On top of her “geek couture” which includes the zodiac signs, superhero-themed costumes, and challenges such as making dresses out of curtains, her TikTok and YouTube videos function as how-to-guides, offering tips and tricks so people can sew-along.

What inspires Sarah Hambly?

In a more recent TikTok, she talks about how and why she began sewing. In 2016, she was encouraged to enter a design competition by the founder, Ashley Eckstein.

Eckstein is well known for her work as a voice actor in Clone Wars as Ahsoka Tano. She created the fashion line Her Universe which is fangirl-themed clothing she felt the market was lacking in. She also holds a design competition under the same name. 

In 2016, Hambly took part in the Her Universe Fashion show at the San Diego Comic-Con and was selected as a finalist. At the time, Hambly was dealing with the recent passing of her father and needed to do something as a positive outlet.

She stayed at an open casting call for 4 hours and was selected to join the competition. At the time, she had little to no sewing experience and so it was a challenge for her. Now she is making elaborate and beautiful couture dresses the internet is pining after.
