About Me

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!

Time to Re-Design

I just received an email from someone who found me through the internet!!! Hey, it really works! Mostly my work over the years has resulted from word of mouth referrals, and when I do advertise, very little becomes of it. For example, a few years ago a friend got married so she asked me to do the alterations of her bridesmaids gowns. The following year 2 of her friends got married, so I did alterations on their bridal parties, including the wedding dresses.

Back to my email request. What was asked of me was if I would be interested in creating a Christening gown for her daughter, using her wedding gown for the materials. Well, how could I say no! What a wonderful idea, and a great use of the gown. We are just in the talking (emailing) stage now, but will be meeting soon to discuss how she wants it to look and what she wants to use from her gown.

I am very excited about this project and will post my progress!
