Hello Everyone!

My name is Eve Coleman and I am from a very large family of nine siblings, seven of which are girls. I started making doll clothes when I was a very young girl, 4 years old to be exact ( 1963!). I would spend hours looking through my mother's scraps of fabric looking for that perfect piece to make my favorite doll a new dress. My sisters and I would sit around with our dolls and sew doll clothes by hand and even compete to see who could make the prettiest dress!

I spent 15 years as an LPN followed by 11 years as a Real Estate Agent/ Broker Manager all while raising two sons and maintaining a home sewing and alteration business. I never lost the passion I had for creating doll clothes. Over the years I have also enjoyed designing and making jointed mohair teddy bears.

Hello Everyone!

My name is Eve Coleman and I am from a very large family of nine siblings, seven of which are girls. I started making doll clothes when I was a very young girl, 4 years old to be exact ( 1963!). I would spend hours looking through my mother's scraps of fabric looking for that perfect piece to make my favorite doll a new dress. My sisters and I would sit around with our dolls and sew doll clothes by hand and even compete to see who could make the prettiest dress!

I spent 15 years as an LPN followed by 11 years as a Real Estate Agent/ Broker Manager all while raising two sons and maintaining a home sewing and alteration business. I never lost the passion I had for creating doll clothes. Over the years I have also enjoyed designing and making jointed mohair teddy bears. Now that I am retired my fun time is spent in the sewing studio sorting through fabric and sketching up new designs. My true enjoyment and passion is in making realistic historical outfits for dolls. On March 1st, 2012, my first Doll Clothes pattern was made available with the help of ( Shari Fuller of Thimbles and Acorns) to the public and released on Etsy. I continue to develop more as time goes by. I also have the privileged to be designing doll clothes for Simplicity and currently have four patterns in stores at this time (August /2015), with another one in the works..

In recent years I have been blessed with three grandsons, one step-grandson and as of September 2014, I now have a step-granddaughter. I am hoping she will be interested in dolls and sewing so I can share this love of creating doll clothes with her as she grows. For now, I am delighted to see others enjoy my creations though Facebook, Etsy, eBay, Pinterest and Flickr.com.

Thanks for visiting!
Eve
