She went on saying, "This line is my main focus right now. I can't draw at all, so I won't be doing any sketches, but I am learning to sew. I think it's important to know more about the whole process of making clothes."

As of her acting career, Bilson is having her latest big screen project "" hit the theaters on date 14 last month. She starred in the adventure science-fiction flick alongside actor boyfriend .
