About

Formerly Lynna's PLTs

Even though I had been sewing since I was very little, I didn't know it was a skill. I sewed clothes for myself here and there, but nothing big. In 2010 one of my friends asked me to make her a couple outfits for Comicon and she loved them. That gave me a little bit of confidence. She introduced me to a theater company who needed a seamstress for an upcoming production, and I took the challenge on. Every actor complimented me on how great their outfits fit their bodies. More confidence built.

Then I started doing some odd jobs on Craigslist, some wins and some crazy people, as it often goes with Craigslist. One day my hubby came home from work with a Cobra Commander XXXL t shirt. All I could think was, "That will never fit me." So, I cut it up and made a dress. It was really simple, I cut in the sides to give it a more feminine look, opened the neck and put a skirt with matching sleeves on it. The first time I wore it out, all my girlfriends wanted one! They asked why I wasn't making them for everyone, and that was it. I knew then, that's what I wanted to do. In 2011 I opened my Etsy shop. I started with only a couple tee shirts, but that grew quickly. In 2012 I started going to farmers markets and recieved a great response to my work. I picked up custom orders and made a lot of friends.

2015 marked the year of change for me. I love my tee shirt dresses, but I decided I needed to move to one signature dress versus many designs in different shapes and sizes. I chose a design that flatters all women. I am really excited about this new direction and can't wait to share it with all of you!

2017 is showing even more growth and change! I'm heading out to special events and making new things with amazing spandex! Keep an eye on Etsy local for where to find me, and see my new fabric on Facebook @gigglesandhootsclothing

    This store is all me! I am a stay-at-home mom who has been sewing since I was 6. I started sewing for super serious in 2012. I'm really proud of all of the creative items I design, sew and sell all by myself.
