Patricia Walsh's Profile
My name is Patricia Walsh. I have been sewing since my teens. When I was expecting my first child in 1981, I became interested in smocking and french handsewing. In 1987 I began constructing smock and wear garments for Denham Designs. In 1990 Kathryn Denham discovered she had terminal cancer. She was 38 years old. Denham Designs was split into two companies and thus Meredith’s Closet was born.
I use mostly 100% cotton; Pimas from England, Liberty of London prints, Swiss batiste, and Feather Wale Corduroy. I also use Imperial Broadcloth, and Batiste for those of you who prefer a poly-cotton blend.
I use french seams, mother of pearl buttons, tatting, fine french laces, and swiss eyelet trims.
I do Christening dresses, flower girl dresses, school and church dresses, infant…
