Free shipping for orders of $135.00 or more (not including shipping costs), either convo me and I'll make you a 'Reserved Listing' with free shipping or I will refund that amount back after purchase.This offer applies to Govt. postal services shipping only.

Please note: UPS, FedEx, DHL and other private shipping companies is an additional charge.

I accept PayPal, Visa, Mastercard and American Express. You do not need a PayPal Account to pay for your items through PayPal:

You can choose the PayPal Option during checkout. After you submit your order, click the "Pay Now" button. Scroll Down and you will see the option to pay with a Credit or Debit Card WITHOUT having to sign up for a PayPal account.

★★Please Note: COLORS: Please keep in mind that colors of images may look slightly different because of the specifics of your computer.

All of the items in my shop are made after time of purchase as I will do custom work in the way of sizing just for you if necessary. Every item is made in my shop by me from start to finish.

At the moment, most fabric and colour choices I have are subject to change as supplies can be limited at times. However I am using more stock that will be available on an ongoing basis.

If you need to delint or remove wrinkles from the washing on an item you can put it in the dryer on COOL NO HEAT for a couple of minutes before laying flat. I always send along a mesh laundry bag for your garment to protect it in the washing machine. Also turning garments inside out when being washed helps prevent possible pilling.

About

Behind the Seams...

I recently moved into a brighter, larger, more organized and efficient work space and am still putting the finishing touches on the new space. I'm thrilled at the potential to create a shop that's more 'me' adding those little touches that can inspire, like paint colours, textures, niches for supplies etc. that work on a day to day basis.

In the past few years I've wanted to start using materials I could be able to deliver on a consistent basis so I have been using a supplier out of California, a US fabric distributor for my rayon/spandex jersey. I'm so happy that I took the time to research suppliers and can offer items that are re-orderable to my customers year after year.

I would like to stop and take a minute to thank all my customers for their patience during this time period. They are the ones that have made it possible to take this to the next level and make it a full time job!

I've always loved sewing and have done since I was a kid and my new-to-me Barbie needed a wardrobe. We couldn't afford the store bought kind so I had to make it work with scraps of fabric, needle and thread. I think I found more enjoyment creating the garments than actually playing with the dolls. And I've never looked back.

Over the years I've done a variety of sewing, whole bridal parties, costumes for the local community theatre, evening gowns for charity fashion show and even clothing for my own children.

Knits weren't natural to me in my early years but I've grown to love working with them especially after I bought my first serger and couldn't imagine living without them now. Knits tend to give you ease and freedom of movement and I find that appealing in every day life, at work or at play, you don't need your clothing holding you back.

Etsy has afforded me a whole other avenue to hone my craft and I'm enjoying every minute of it.

In my shop I've chosen to break certain services down to be charged accordingly such as tracking numbers, rush orders, additional length (10" or more), additional features and sizing etc. This way the customer pays for what they want rather than one price for all.

Thank you all for stopping by and browsing ; )
