My 91-year-old mom and I have been sewing together for over 50 years and making everything from wedding gowns to giant stuffed mice with polka dot ears—the crazy to the sublime.
These days we're sewing up colorful clothes for Barbie doll to wear, thinking about what she might wear in her 1950's kitchen, to a party or just following the lead of a pretty piece of fabric. Often, we'll make several of a particular garment, but, we really get bored mass producing so we also make OOAK dresses. Our creativity is restless and we each have different ideas about what Barbie should wear — that's the fun of it! After all, even a Barbie mom goes to a party once in a while, doesn't she?
We care about the things we sew, and will put lining into our more complex garments — just can't stand messy seams on something really fancy...
