About earlybloomers

On Etsy since 2011

umphf generation seamstress

My grandmother and my great grandmothers taught me to sew as a young girl. I started making clothes that I wanted and could not buy. I took sewing classes in college and learned how to draft patterns out of my ideas. My friends started commissioning me to make clothes for them, and patterns out of their favorite clothes. Thats how early bloomers started. Originally I just made bloomers but now I have many patterns of clothes and costumes I designed. I specialize in couture and garment reproduction. The name of my label is Mode It Be. My portfolio and more info can be found on my website.
