I'm a details person. Little tweaks and touches are what make the designing process fun, and what elevates sewing beyond a chore. Ric-rack, embroidery, piping, and pleated trims are the things that make my crafty heart race.

Shop Policies:

I enjoy what I do, but I take my products seriously. Every seam is triple-checked, and reinforced to ensure long use. I guarantee my work and will refund your money if the unused item is returned within 30 days. The buyer would be responsible for the return shipping and insurance fee.

Most of these items are machine washable with like colors, and safe to dry. All fabric is pre-washed. Iron as needed.
