Hey everyone! Sorry I haven’t been around for such a long while. Being busy is a horrible excuse for neglecting my blog, but I have just had to prioritize things in the middle of everything. Working as an entrepreneur is interesting, exciting, exhausting, nerve-wrecking and exhilarating at the same time. I get to do […]
Right now I’m working on two wedding dresses. One of them is an alteration project, the other one a full sewing project from beginning to the end. These are not the first gowns I’ve worked on, yet I always feel a little timid taking on a project like this. It’s probably the most important dress […]
Remember this dress? Well, the lovely customer stopped by for a visit today in her new outfit. This young lady is definitely on the active side. She was the perfect candidate to prove the Miss Jeans Dress works well in action!

At some point I did promise to show you pictures of my new photo studio (slash fitting room, slash storage space for my finished items). It really is a multi-functional room – when you work from home and have a limited amount of space, you need to use your imagination! Anyway, it still needs some […]
I just added this tan colored rowanberry dress to the shop. It’s made of lovely, softened cotton that I was able to find second hand. As soon as I saw the fabric I knew what it was going to become. There was just enough to make this piece, so it’s definitely one of a kind!
