Jacket and Skirt

From fabric to fashion

Did the creative fairy cast a blissful spell on you when you were little? Are your favorite hours of the day spent drawing, painting, sewing, writing, cooking or exploring other creative grounds?  Harness and be proud of the creative power of your mind! And be supportive of all the creative thinkers in your family.

Sewing your own wardrobe, creating garments from scratch mixed with personal alterations of store-bought items, is so much fun. The more you use your creativity to make it your own, the more you will enjoy and be proud of your one of a kind garment!
