On Etsy since 2010

Love to sew.

My grandmother taught me to sew when I was 10 years old. I fell in LOVE with it, and by 13 I was making many of my own clothes. I had my own sewing machine in a corner of my bedroom and most nights my mom had to knock on the door and tell me to quit sewing and get to bed.

By 19 I had a small side business sewing oversized work suits and dresses for large women.

I went to college to study art then worked for a number of aerospace companies doing computer graphics.

By 30, when my first child came along, I was ready to stay home to raise her and any future children I would have. I knew I needed to do some work on the side (for my sanity) and decided to go back to my roots, first sewing children’s clothes, then clothes to fit Barbie and the American Girl Doll (Bitty Baby and My Twinn as well.)

When my eldest daughter started doing dance and gymnastics at a local community center I began making her leotards and dance outfits. Eventually others started to notice her outfits and wanted to know where I got them. That is when LeoLines came to exist.

In 2012 I was approached by a mom of a transgender girl who asked if I could alter a swimsuit. From there I designed a pair of underwear, and after multiple tweaks found a working design for children which I put in the shop. It did not take long for transgender adult women to ask for some in their sizes. In 2018 I switched the shop to ALL transgender products.

Through the years I have made outfits for aerialists, horseback riders, weight lifters, transgender children and adults, roller derby competitors, baton twirlers, dancers, ice skaters and more.

Here is an article published a number of years ago about LeoLines:
