Announcement   My name is Cheryl Johnston and everything is handmade by me. The name of my shop Cheryldine , a combination of my first name and my mother's name(who passed). She is my greatest inspiration. I always loved fashion, my husband (soul mate)of 36 years, taught me how to sew, he also has a shop on Etsy(Wendel Johnston). My style is very unconventional, most of the time, I don't hem (raw hem). I take the fabric and start wrapping around my dress form, not too many cuts, more draping and adding fabric to create the look I want. I love making dresses.

I make clothes to flatter the figure.
I am happy to say plus size woman have been requesting my designs, so if you are between size 16-20 my dress form will assist me.

The fabric in most of my designs is ITY (poly jersey), which is great for my designs. I can double fabric if you want that extra support when it calls for a fitted look.
Some of my dresses can be worn as a wedding dress with a little additions. Example : color, lengthen or shorten.
Fabric of choice anything with stretch. ITY(poly jersey), milliskin spandex, rayon lycra cotton lycra and Ponte De Roma 65%rayon,30%nylon and 5% spandex (good quality knit).
My dressform and pins is all that it takes to get the process moving. My style of designing is called draping. Most of my dresses are raw edge cut, I like the handmade appeal to it. I don't use patterns. You are getting a one of a kind piece designed especially for you. I do custom orders.
Nothing is factory made. I work out of my home. Most custom orders can be shipped within 2- 3 weeks (United States) and 3-4weeks (International) after I receive payment.
If have a special date in mind or rush order, please let me know in advance.

Scarves are my new item. I love velvet, rich colors and chiffon and charmeuse ( bright color prints)which I love to mix and match prints. The prints can be worn on either side (tye around your head, tye around your waist or use to for as a neck scarf. Scarfs are an added accessory to your style.

Shop policies

My garments that I make and design are all HANDMADE by me. They are not factory made. I get it close as possible. 'PLEASE NOTE: All pieces are created by hand, so no two items are identical. That's the beauty of the product! Please allow for slight variances from what is shown in the made to order photos.

'"If you would like to have a different color other than what you see, or a different fabric (cotton jersey, or stretch silk) please indicate that through email. I generally use stretch, if you want a looser fit I can add a few inches so that the garment can drape on you.

Measurements that I would need (using a tape measure)
BUST-this includes your breast
WAIST-smallest part torso
HIP-largest part of hip measurement
ARM-from armpit to wrist (long sleeve)
LENGTH (for dresses)- shoulder to desired length
LENGTH (for skirts only) - measurement from area of hip where you plan to wear skirt to desired length
