Dreaming of Dresses
I’ve always loved to sew, and on my twelfth birthday my mother gave me the choice of a birthday party or a sewing machine. No contest, I chose the 1990’s Kenmore and purchased a case for it myself. It has been with me through thick and thin, and it sews many of creations seen in my shop today.
I have cultivated a deep awareness of our environment and a concern for the great impact of our waste of unwanted garments and textiles. I'm also determined to pursue my aspirations, and have decided to teach myself design and pattern drafting using the literature of times passed. Consulting vintage sewing books and patterns, I have begun to scratch at the surface of the art of dressmaking.
Making quality clothing out of recycled fabrics is the perfect combination for me. It enables me to pair traditional dressmaking techniques with environmental consciousness. It is an outlet for me to experiment with different design methods and continue to pursue my dreams and teach myself. Constantly using limited materials quenches my thirst for a challenge and allows me to make one of a kind garments. The book 'Singer Dressmaking Course (1961)' notes,
“Color (and design) in a dress should provide a frame for, and enhance the personality of, the wearer.”
I like to think that my dresses are like people, each with it’s own unique personality. I hope that you find the dress that I have sewn just for you.
