Inspired By Tess

It all started when I finally had a baby girl after having 5 boys. She brought such happiness into our family the day she was born! I grew up sewing with my mother who is a master seamstress. What a gift she shared with me! From the first days of having a little girl in my arms I would sit and imagine all the fun things I could sew for her. The first thing I sewed for her {other than her sweet baby bedding} was a little dress cut from a pattern I made on the local Sprouts add. And the sewing frenzy began!

Thank you for visiting Inspired by Tess! I am one busy stay-at-home mom to 5 boys and the most adorable little girl. After all those crazy boys I could have only dreamed of having a little girl to sew cute, one of a kind clothing for! She has inspired a little addiction and creativeness in me that I want to share with you. Welcome to Inspired by Tess!
