Little girls love to dance

Need something formal? I constantly get asked for wedding dresses, graduation dresses, formal dresses for dinner parties, and elegant events. In this case, the customer needed a dress for a father and daughter dance. This classic black and white dress will surprise you.

When you get the opportunity to work with bolts of fabric, the hardest decision you face as a designer is “What pattern should I use?”.  You laugh, but if I had my way I would make 10 different dresses for...

Yippee, today is the first day of FALL.  I hope everyone is as excited as we are.  At the moment our temperatures in Florida are just perfect, and the air feels crisp clean and dry.  Acorns are falling off the trees,...

Finally, we were able to photograph, post, and upload these lovely pictures of our second Halloween Dress……….the Cassie Dress……yes named for the famous CASPER character that everyone knows and loves. 

Boo!

There comes a time each year, in which I feel a need, or maybe an urge for FALL to come.  Most likely due to the very hot and humid summer months that get on my nerves, or go on way...

Savannah Rose….

All I week long, I could not shake this nagging feeling that I had forgotten something……..it just would not leave me alone. Of course, this week there was so much on my plate that it could have been a number...

Leggings anyone….

  It’s that time of year again, when I find myself sewing a lot of leggings, but thank goodness we have a variety of colors to choose from.  Leggings are the perfect accessory for dresses, skirts and tops.
