[PHOTO STORY] Lagos reaps what she sews

When mask mandates were established across the US early on in the pandemic many people tried their hand in sewing their own cloth masks. Senior Olivia Lagos took it one step further and experimented with sewing clothing for herself.

“I started sewing when we first went into quarantine because my mom brought out my grandma’s old sewing machine to make masks to donate to people. She wasn’t very good at it, so I started to make masks. It was pretty fun,” Lagos said.

Since March, Lagos has sewed tens of different items from hats and tank tops to a pair of overalls. She has found sewing a sustainable way to make clothing, but also a fun skill to learn and use of her time.
