A talented 18-year-old girl sews beautiful dresses that look like they came from a Disney movie

Angela Clayton is a costume artist from Long Island, New York. She is eighteen years old. She started sewing when she got interested in cosplay three years ago. Now, Clayton goes to fewer events and focuses more on making her designs. Her projects can take up to 250 hours, and Clayton once made an outfit out of 11 meters (or 12 yards) of fabric.

Clayton told Bored Panda, "I first became interested in historical fashion because of the costumes in "The Three Musketeers" and "The Borgias." "Every day, I spend hours sewing. And if I'm not making, I'm probably thinking about it."

Clayton told Cosmo, "I hope I can make a career out of it in the future." "I enjoy making outfits and making ideas come to life. If I could do that for fashion, especially for theatre or movies, that would be great...I would rather do that right away instead of going to school for four years."

Angela began sewing when she was 14 years old.

"When I was 14, I made a school uniform from an anime show. It was the first thing I finished." I spent about two months on it."

"I liked cosplay, which is making costumes or wearing them to conventions, but I couldn't afford the costumes you could buy online."

"I thought, 'Oh, I'll make my own!'" That will be fun and simple!' It wasn't, but I liked it a lot"

"I've been working on one since January, and I'm not done with it yet, but I hope to finish it soon."

"I kept making the costumes because I liked sewing for them."

"I just wanted to give myself more freedom to work on historical projects and new designs."

"You can do it if you work at it. It could take some time"

"Some people are naturally good at it, but anyone can learn how to do it."

"It's fun for me to do. I love making outfits and giving life to ideas."
