Before I co-owned a little indie fabric shop I made dresses for people. This one I used a vintage 1946 Butterwick pattern and floral printed linen. This dress sold to the lovely lady below Diane.


I love making dresses for others. It is like a puzzle figuring out the measurements and putting it all together. When it’s all finished and they love it is  my most favorite part of the process.

Most people do not realize all of the work involved unless you also make dresses for people. I have learned so much along this road. First get the money in advance! I would say that is the most important part although there is a lot more.

Thank you for reading.
