Over 20 Years of Experience
I have been creating custom wedding gowns and special occasion dresses for over 20 years. In many ways, creating these fashions is an extension of my background in performing arts and my college-level classes in costuming. During my time in business, I have helped send hundreds of couples down the aisle in hand made gowns. I have also helped mothers look their best for this special day in their children's lives.

An Extensive Collection of Resources
Throughout the years I have gathered an extensive collection of patterns, costume designs and other sewing and references and resources. If you can think of it, I have a resource and can create it for you.

More than Just Dresses
I have recently branched out into creating upholstery and window treatments. I really enjoy using fabric to help create comfortable spaces in the home through upholstery, window treatments and bedroom furnishings..

Period Perfect Costumes
My work is not just about weddings and special occasions. I have had a chance to  create costumes from Princesses to Penguins. I have also created "period perfect" dress for serious role players.

And a Bit of Fun, Too
I take "fun" pretty seriously, too. Some of these projects include T-shirt quilts, special dress doll clothes and doll closets.
