Although most of my sewing is for custom outfits, I sometimes have the opportunity to create clothes that I can offer on Etsy. I find inspiration in great fabric or cute patterns.. Many of the items can be made in different sizes or different colors. From special occasion outfits such as Christening gowns and First Communion dresses to playclothes, I will be happy to try to accomodate your needs. Please contact me for more specific information.
