Cheryldine's Shop Announcement

My name is Cheryl Johnston and everything is handmade by me. The name of my shop Cheryldine it is 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 always loved mixing and matching colors,textures and fabrics. I am having lots of fun bring my idea of mixing fabrics. I have another shop with my beautiful scarves.
