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!

New Summer Dress!

Elaine had a favorite summer dress (the grey one) and wanted another just like it. So I patterned the dress and bought swatches for her to choose from. Here is the result! She is very happy with her new summer dress!

Happy 4th of July!

Hope you are all enjoying the Nation's holiday!

Remember, now is a great time to go through your wardrobe and consider redesigning some of those articles you just can't part with but may be a "tad" out of style! Look at your Fall wardrobe and see what needs to be taken in/let out, hemmed, zipper fixed, etc...
