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!

Guess I've been a little busy!!!

It's been almost 6 months since my last post!

In that time frame I've had numerous brides and bridesmaids come my way, lots of prom dresses, and a custom first communion dress to make out of her mom's wedding gown!

I guess you could say I've been busy!

A change in my full time job status has given me more time to concentrate on doing what I love, and makes me think about what my next move is. Should I try to make sewing/alterations/custom design my full time job, or get a part or another full time job in what I went to  college for, just for stability, while still having my own business.

Decisions....they aren't easy!

I know one thing. When I create something new out of something old, that is where my creative side takes over and that's what I really enjoy! The expression on the faces of the person in possession of the new garment, is priceless.
