Andrea Densley's Profile

About

When I was 7 years old I sewed doll clothes by hand and also sketched ladies in beautiful dresses. By age 12 I was sewing with a machine and taking a beginning tailoring class. In 6th grade I was astounded to learn that"fashion design" was a career path! That moment I knew that in addition to becoming a famous movie star and a recording artist when I “grew up”, I would also be a designer. haha.

Now decades later, I have a University degree in design, sing with a swing band and have had some tiny stints in film. I am still sketching evening gowns, but now, I also get to wear them. : )

In my Etsy shop I have clothes I've designed and made, vintage things that need a happy home, and random re purposed or re-modeled items. The truth is, I have not been able to narrow my focus…

I think I've always been a multi-tasker, and I've realized that I'm a multi-thinker/creator as well. Its super challenging to be a "Finisher"!! I am always striving for that.

If you need a dress or costume designed or made, if you need a Facebook banner made, if you need a painting from a family portrait, if you need an editor for your blog or book, if you need a flyer or poster designed....if you need Sand Dollar shells from Washington---let me know. LOL. My creativity is always running rampant and for sure, your project will be finished. I've always been so much better with a deadline.

Thanks for dropping by! Andrea
