As a designer I believe all women are entitled to elegant, well made, and fun clothing. I strive to design clothing that makes women feel confident and attractive while being functional and pleasing. I have a tendency to gravitate towards feminine designs which are stunning in their simplicity, and I am strongly influenced by the feminine styles of the 50’s and by the natural world.
I do a variety of custom designs and sewing including business, bridal, casual and children’s wear.
