Announcement   Thanks for stopping by! Halloween 2016 season is fast approaching. I open up my queue for orders starting July 15. If you want me to make a custom costume for you, DO NOT DELAY in placing your order. My "make it" queue is often full by August 15. With that in mind, wedding gown to christening gown conversion orders will be considered if the delivery date is for end of August but after that, because of Halloween, I may stop accepting these until November.

I specialize in dance attire and accessories (Irish or others), weddings, formals and costumes but I also do digitizing, embroidery, kids clothes, everyday, gifts...you name it, I'll sew it!

I LOVE CUSTOM ORDERS! - Once, long ago on Etsy, an artist could "seek out" interesting orders from people requesting custom items. Now you have to find me, and it looks like you have. Yay! I love custom orders. The stock items displayed in my shop are just a tiny sampling of my abilities. They are mostly things I have made for an entry at our county fair, or because I think they are beautiful and just could not resist. I have a "busy hands" issue, and NEED to create. I specialize in garments, but other projects will be considered, as well. Shoot me a convo here on Etsy, and we can discuss your project.

If you want to see projects I've done for others, check out my SOLD items. You may also visit my Facebook page to view my entire portfolio:

This dress was perfect. Rebecca made my wedding dress into exactly what I pictured for my daughter's christening. I wish I could post a pic of her in it. Completely worth the cost. 💜

Really beautiful banner, done nicely and delivered on time. My son s banner was the nicer one and we're very happy with the purchase. We're planing on framing it and keep it forever.

About

Why "Irish" and more???

I love Ireland, so much so that my husband and I got married there! Of course, as a seamstress, Irish Dance attire fascinates me. It is an ever changing style world - with extreme sewing challenges! There are many levels of construction from simple school skirts through highly detailed embroidered three dimensional competition dresses! My daughter has been Irish Dancing for 12 years, and I sew for both of our local dance schools. But even with two schools in town, that is not a full time job - so the rest of the time, I keep busy sewing just about everything else. Garments are my main focus and special occasion dresses are a joy to create, but I love sewing 18" doll clothes, stuffed animals, quilts, etc... I also knit, and dabble in other three dimensional creativity.

If you have a special project, ask me! I like new challenges, and try to be open and honest about what I think I can or can not undertake. I would love to work with you!

Thanks for stopping by!

    I am a professional seamstress with many years of bridal shop experience. Currently, I work at our local Sewing Center, and in my own studio where I accept custom orders and teach sewing. Every day brings something new to work on!

My life is centered on a balance of family, honesty, loyalty, and friendship. My successes are measured through personal satisfaction in a job well done; being completely involved in something from the very beginning to the very end; creating something of value from next to nothing, and being true to my creative visions. That said, sewing is my main artistic outlet; but I also knit, and dabble in other three dimensional creativity.

Payment
Right now, I am only using PayPal for payments.
Shipping
Shipping prices quoted include the fees that I have to pay to Etsy and PayPal. Many people forget that as sellers, we have quite a bit of overhead with these fees. The more expensive the item, the more we have to pay. Actual shipping will be determined by the item and the destination, and the urgency of when it needs to arrive. I will pick the most reasonable method possible. I reuse packaging materials whenever possible to reduce waste, but I always pack items in plastic inside of their shipping cartons, because of risk of dampness between here and there! International customers please inquire re: shipping before ordering. Thanks!
Refunds and Exchanges
No refunds given, but if you are not satisfied with an item, we can discuss possible corrective measures.
Additional policies and FAQs
Custom orders are my mainstay! I love doing one of a kind work. I believe in the old cliche: "Variety is the spice of life." I would love to discuss your unique project, so click the "request a custom item" button, and lets get started!
