3. Thank you so much.

I learned to sew when I was 9, sewing by hand, doing embroidery.

Growing up in the 1960's, I latched on to the neighborhood ladies. What I learned from them shaped me in what I would do in my later years. I made my own clothes, sewed for some of my teachers when in High School. In my Senior year of H.S. my sewing teacher taught Tailoring and Pattern drafting. She had worked in Hollywood during the 1930's through the mid 1960's. She worked with Oscar winning costume designers of that time and knew all the tricks. That class stays with me to this day.

While I have a Bachelor's in Education with an Art Major, History Minor, I turned that into what I have been doing since the mid 1980's. I do not regret obtaining an education. It has increased the amount of reading and research I do to get a period right from the Undergarments outward.

I do love my job. Seeing joy on a client's face means more than what I charge. I am not so expensive my clients cannot afford me, but nor will I have a client look cheaply made. That is my promise to all my clients.
