I started this shop because I love vintage clothing! I like to wear old timey dresses that fit just right.

I love sewing! I make custom vintage clothing to your exact measurements and fabric choices.
Vintage patterns aren't always the best fitting patterns, so I modify them, sometimes a little, sometimes a lot, to make them better fitting, more comfortable, and modern, but still with period details and vintage style. I can make anything in this shop in any size, xs petite to 3X. I'm very good at sizing patterns and love my tape measure. Please look at my feedback for happy customer testimonials.

Here's a link to the vintage reproduction section of my shop.

And here's my Sample sale section! You might find a bargain here that fits you just right. Convo me for alterations.

Some of the designs and patterns you see here, especially the funky character aprons, are my own original designs. I love coming up with my own patterns, my own characters, and painting pictures with fabric. Here's a link to the aprons in my shop:
and here are the Men's aprons and BBQ aprons:

One of my favorite design inventions from the past year is A Quilt of Words. You write the words, I make them into a silk and cotton quilt.
My Quilt of Words is a wonderful gift! It would make a great keepsake for a Bride and Groom, a Couple celebrating an anniversary, or a memento of a special occasion, like a
retirement. These quilts take time to craft but are worth it in the finished product. They are beautiful and made of silk, cotton and linen! With custom words of your own choosing!

Please allow 1 -3 weeks for manufacture and delivery on custom dress and clothing orders, 1 to 3 months for custom quilts.

If I'm not sewing, I'm probably gardening, or cooking and taking pictures of of it all for my recipe blog:
I'm working on a cookbook of easy and healthy everyday dishes. I love food and I love photography.

When I want to relax after work, I like to sit on the back porch and drink a frosty cold beverage, work in the garden, or ride my bike.
Fabric shopping is one of my favorite activities. I get inspired looking at textiles and prints. I especially love reproduction cottons that look like old feed and flour sacks. I love vintage patterns too and am building up quite an awesome collection.

I sew a lot and try to make something new just about every day.
I really like designing funny, vintage inspired apron pockets based on anthropomorphic characters from days gone by. I like to create something that'll make me laugh.
