About

A Dream Is a Wish Your Heart Makes

On December 22nd 2014, 2 days before Christmas. My home was destroyed by an electrical fire that started in the garage. Everything was destroyed except a few pieces of clothing, a pair of my oldest sons shoes and a blanket. Important irreplaceable items such as photos and family videos are stored on the cloud thankfully, but all other items gone. We are thankful to be alive, will stay positive, and know over time will replace all that was lost.
Due to the huge loss. My Etsy Shop will remain closed, untill I can catch up on orders that were lost in the fire. If you'd like to donate to my Go Fund Me, so that I can get my business back to where it was. Please click the link below. Thank you for your prayers and support

I started sewing at the age of 8. The first dress I sewed was for my Barbie Doll. I had just finished watching Sleeping Beauty. Oh! how I longed to make her that beautiful blue dress that Aurora wears in the Disney version. So I used scraps of blue satin fabric that my mother used to make my Halloween costume with. I didnt know how to sew, so I used hot glue and cut the pieces of fabric out to make a dress. My hands were blistered from the hot glue and the dress was a disaster. I was really unhappy with myself. That night, I asked my mother to show me how to sew by hand.

I didnt really discover my talents until the end of my high school years. I made sequined bras and sequined skirts to match, just so I could look cute at the night club. Then eventually I decided to take it to the next level and decided to make my very own Cinderella Gown from scratch. I had no clue how to make a pattern, nor where to begin, but some how the dress came out gorgeous.

About a year later I decided to go to FIDM in Los Angeles. My dream was to design and become a better sewer. I adapted their way, and soon enough I was able to create anything from a pattern and sew professionally. From that point on, dress's were no longer hot glued or made without a pattern again.

All my costumes are made of high quality materials. I am a very picky sewer. All trims, buckles, hand sewn details must be accurate and done right or I am not happy.

If you have any special request, please, please ask. I am always happy to add new designs to my collection of costumes. I have done period costumes from the Renaissance Era, French Hoods, Victorian ball gowns, Custom Made hats made from all sorts of materials. I have also made many items that are not listed here on ETSY. I lost some really great photos of the Mary Poppins Jolly Holliday Umbrella and Hat. I have also made Belle from Beauty and the Beast and Jessica Rabbit.

I am also currently renting out costumes at www.petiteleon.com
