About us

My greatest wish for you, is to dream big, create fearlessly and go after the things that bring you and those around you joy!

I found my love of designing and sewing when I had my first daughter, Aubrey.  I wanted her to wear the cute, boutique style clothing I had found online, but I couldn't afford it.  I decided to ask for a sewing machine for Christmas and proceeded to teach myself to sew.

Along the way, I realized that I had something special when it came to putting fabrics together and I loved the adorable creations I was making.  

I began selling clothing online with the encouragement of family and friends.  I learned new and better ways to make them each day and continued to grow my business.  Ten years later, with a successful business, I wanted to give back.  I decided to offer sewing patterns for the dresses I sold in my boutique for those who couldn't afford them.  To me, this was giving back to where it all began for me.  

From there I was hooked. Designing sewing patterns was so fun and I found that the more I worked at learning how to draft patterns, the better I became at it.  I have been designing patterns since 2012, and there is nothing I love more.
