About Me

Melrose, MA, United States
Hi there, and thanks for visiting my Blog! How did I get started? Well, when I was pretty young, my mom taught me all the basics of sewing. It seemed to come natural to me, and by the time I was in middle school, I began to make lots of my own clothes. I did some sewing for people I knew, (including my mom!)and then bought my first sewing machine in 1986 when I decided that I would make my own wedding gown! I live in Melrose, MA with my husband and our 3 boys. When expecting our first, I started to make dolls, just in case I had a girl. I continued making and selling them as they were fun to make and customize for a special girl. I work out of my home and have had the great experience of making gowns, home fashions, dolls and doing many alterations over the years. My work has been largely word of mouth, with very little advertising. I think you will find my work unique and would like to create something special just for you!

Mirror assumes its post

It's been a busy summer in my kitchen. Oh sure, the usual get togethers with family and friends, the bustle of kids coming and going, but also fittings, fittings and more fittings! I usually would keep this mirror on hand in my sewing area and bring it up to the kitchen (where the fittings take place) so the person can view how the garment is pinned and weather they like it or if changes are needed. But since its' been such a busy summer for alterations, I never took it out of the kitchen! So, I think it's earned it's post as a permanent fixture.
This red dress for a teenage girl caught my eye and I thought it would be just the thing for this blog. The perfect length, a bright color to catch your eye, and all pinned and ready to sew. So here you are.
