Handmade Clothing for Children

I love designing clothes. I start with an idea and sketch it out a bunch of different ways, deciding which I like best. I then draft the pattern (my favorite part) and make a variety of sizes by adding half an inch here and there, use my French curve to get lovely curves and square all the corners to ensure the seems will line up. I then choose, iron and cut the fabric into the pieces needed. Then it’s sewing time. I use both a serger and sewing machine to sew it all together (my daughter, who is 9, loves to help me sew or serge any of the easier parts). Then the item is done and ready for a sweet little girl to wear.
