Original gowns for girls and dolls in my creative designs using specialty fabrics and Lace
I’m so excited to tell you my shop is now trending on Etsy. I listed my first few gowns in March 2017 and quickly sold out. I’ve now sold over 1000 specialty gowns and dresses since that time.
Making one of a kind fancy doll gowns and now matching Girl and doll dresses and pajamas is what I enjoy after a prolific career as a literacy professor. When I first started sewing doll clothes in 1994, I was making fancy wedding gowns. I had a passion for using fancy fabrics and laces inspired by my grandmother’s fancy Barbie gowns.
Christmas season for me begins about late July. Please order all matching Girl and doll sets early as I will be deluged with orders. I fill orders promptly but the volume will cause a delay, so please order early what you need in matching sets. My last day for orders is Dec. 10. Last shipping day is Dec. 19.
Years of sewing led to my 1994 first line of Doll Clothes. That's when it all began... from that I've made thousands of gowns It wasn't until March 2017 that I finally decided to open my Etsy Shop. Now I’m over 1000 sales. You can buy ready to ship matching gowns and pajamas in my matching Girl doll section.

What inspires me to design a dress is how I put the lace and fabrics together. Sometimes I make certain outfits depending on the print. What also inspires me is when I sell a dress. Most of the time I price things low to sell fast. I have decided that I just love making the dresses because I know how much doll lovers like their new dress.

Matching Girl and doll items
My gowns are all handmade by me. I'm responsible for fabric selections, sewing, and adding trims or details. Something handmade has a unique quality and a whole lot of love. I have designed dresses, pajamas, and gowns with that fit worry in mind. My designs are shaped to grow into like my wrap dresses, and my wrap lace skirts. My style is an organic process with the customer and I working together to get a good fit before I start sewing. If you do purchase something and it does not work, I can rework the item, just ship it back to me right away. I do suggest you start thinking now about Christmas matching pajamas sets you would like as the last day for orders will be December 10, 2018
Are you taking Christmas orders for 2018?
Yes. I highly recommend you start thinking about early orders especially on all sister sets and matching girl and doll pajamas. I have wonderful fabric choices and some fabulous styles, but come early July 2018 I will start selling out fast on all my items. So, please order early if you see something you like, I usually make only one or two of each fabric design or style.
My accessories are selling out within weeks of me restocking so I suggest ordering stocking stuffers early.
If you see a style of a dress you like send me a question and I usually create a special order for you. I work with a dress form to ensure the best fit. I can also suggest appropriate sizes. I always guarantee support after the item is given too.
