Because of the women in my vast Dominican family, I grew up loving fabric and the idea that you could create virtually anything you wanted with it.
After having worked in NY City's fashion district for over 15 years, I took a leap of faith, got married, moved out of state and fell in love all over again with my sewing machine. I get inspired by all that is around me : friends, family, rice pudding , vintage ( I serously wish I could time travel to just nab the amazing clothes from every era!!) and the countless magazines that keep accumulating in my husband's garage (sorry hun!).
The items here are all a labor of love. As with any labor, there are the pains of having to change countless broken needles, ripping appart unacceptable stitching, pressing and smoothing until I am absolutely satisfied with the final product...
