About

Welcome to Dale the Ellen.

My name is Dee Dee. I am a full time alteration seamstress in the bridal industry with over 20 years experience. Everything you see in my shop is handmade by me and my trusty sewing machine. Just me.

I am trying to put on my shop items that aren't readily available in the stores. Plus, my own personal quirky style is a little off the main stream. This gives me a great creative outlet for all those ideas I get.

I am working on a wearable art / recycled clothing line that is full of lace, lace and more lace. I have about 20 years of lace from sewing and altering wedding dresses. Most all the lace I use is recycled from old wedding dresses. The laces are dated and don't match the laces I need for current alterations, so hey, why not make something pretty out of the old lace.

I doubt I will ever run out of lace.

This line gives me such joy because it is totally unstructured and asymetical. Each piece is unique. The stress just melts off my body when I am working on these clothes.

I also try to keep in mind people actually wearing and washing these clothes. These should become favorites that see a lot of wear. Artistic but real world wearable.

Because I work with brides on a daily basis, I am in tune with current styles, how brides like things to fit, and popular colors. They are constantly asking me to put their sashes into the zipper, or turn it into a belt because the ties look corny in the back tied in a bow. So I have included a few belts in with my sashes.

I am happily married and have been blessed with 5 children. I have 6 adorable grandchildren. I love to garden, especially flowers. I have a lot of roses, but probably not enough. Never enough roses. I live in a gingerbread house with a picket fence around it. Could life get any better? Probably not.

Speaking of good life, I 100% guarantee complete satisfaction with your purchase. No questions asked. No grief when dealing with me.
