hello there!

 

I'm Dana! Welcome to our shop! I sewed my first item as a kid for my dolls. My mom, aunt, grandma, and God-mother also sewed and my first "official" sewing lesson was at church when I was a teenager. It crossed my mind over the years that I wanted to start sewing again. But it didn't happen until my early 40s and one day I told my husband, "I'm going to start sewing again." He said, "I didn't know you sewed.."

Fave Summer Patterns

🌻 Sew I made this lovely bright green dress last year from the Made by Rae Washi dress sewing pattern. πŸ’š

🌻 It was the perfect dress for this beautiful Sunday!

Fave Summer Patterns

🌻 Sew I wore this Vogue dress to a Herbie Hancock concert on Dayton, OH.
 

🌻This is one of those patterns you really have to be confident in. While at the concert, a young lady complimented me and I told her I made it. She said "Oh really?!" She said she went to design school so she gets fashion and she really loved it!

 

🌻I really enjoyed the concert, but she was the highlight of my night.

Fave Summer Patterns

Fave Summer Patterns

🌻I want to share a few of my favorite patterns this Summer. During months when it's so hot you can barely breathe, I love to throw on something that's not too fussy, lightweight, and cute! A pattern that fits the bill is the Simplicity pattern 2934 (View A). I picked up this pattern over a year ago and I made several versions of it. It's intended for knits but I made 1 in a woven. It has a few sleeve variations.. one that ties, which is super cute, and a simple cap sleeve, which is my most preferred sleeve.

🌻Another favorite pattern of mine this Summer is Simplicity 8046. I made 1 for myself last Summer and gave it away and I made a few for other people. This Summer I made it in this lovely green knit fabric that I purchased from Fields Fabric of Kalamazoo, MI. I think green was my color this Summer!

Fave Summer Patterns

🌻This is 1 of my newer patterns and I love it! It's called the Artisan Dress by Simplicity 8856. I've made about 4 of them. I made a size XS based on the finished garment measurements and ease specifications but it ended up being pretty snug in the bust region but it still fit. I should've known better not to make a size XS, but.. 

​

🌻It's a woven pattern but I decided to make it in a knit since the woven was so fitted and it worked out well. This dress also has pockets.. what girl doesn't love a dress (or anything) with pockets!?

Isn't She Lovely..

Here's my dear cousin Sherry in a dress I made using Simplicity Cynthia Rowley pattern D0752. I made one for myself back in 2017 and I had semi-retired this pattern due to the very time consuming pleats but I'm so glad she asked me to make it because it reminded me how much I loved this pattern when I first saw it and fell in love with it.

​

Doesn't she just look.. LOVELY!

I had become frustrated with shopping for clothes and not finding anything that was "my style" or fit me well and I, out of the blue, started sewing. I had never made anything on my own or since I was a teenager but some how I got in my head that I was just going to start sewing my own clothes.

​

I went to the fabric store to look for a pattern and I purchased some fabric, thread, and such. I didn't have a sewing machine but I thought I could just go use my mom's. When I called her to tell her I wanted to sew, she was quite shocked and told me she had given her sewing machine away to goodwill years ago.. 

​

When I told my dear husband about my sewing idea, he told his mom about it (incidentally, his mom also sews) and she loaned me one of her machines. I later ended up getting my own machine a couple months later from a "manufacturing" company I worked for. 

​

I like to sew dresses and tunics. I tend to like things that are a bit loose and modest. I like to keep it classy.. It is the most rewarding thing to make something and be super excited about wearing it! And then to go out and have people compliment my clothes is absolutely amazing!
