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!

How Romantic!

A wedding in Boston on New Years Eve! I have just been asked to help with alterations on a gown for someone attending the grand (black tie optional) event. What a great city to get married in on the most splendid day of the year! She came to me with a simple yet elegant full length black satin gown. I told her I thought that the style really complimented her well. Once it is tailored to fit, she will be absolutely stunning!
