Sewing Up a Deal

WWD – Eva Longoria has a secret — she’s actually an accomplished seamstress.

“I have an industrial sewing machine in my house and I’m so excited when they develop a new pedal. ‘Ooh, now I can do a chain stitch,’” she laughed. “People think I’m crazy.”

The award-winning actress, director and entrepreneur said she’s been sewing her whole life, starting with throw pillows and duvets and moving into apparel, creating everything from “Halloween costumes to dresses” for herself and her friends. “It’s one of the things people don’t know about me,” she said. “I sew.”
