Hand Made By Neva is creating a unique costume for a child's special day.
I pestered my mom to teach me to sew, because I could tell this was something she loved to do. I sewed clothes for my dolls, my fingers (ouch), and my very own quilt. My proudest moment was walking down the aisle in the wedding dress my mom and I designed and handmade.
As the years flew by, my kids and then my grandkids came to me with ideas for costumes that we designed together.
Now I'm retired and have more time to add that sweet smile to a child's face, when they play in a costume handmade by me.
Owner, Designer, Creator
I loved dressing up in costumes. Now I'm a grandmother who loves creating costumes that are made well to endure many playtimes. Taking a child's idea and creating a costume that adds a smile to his or her face makes the time spent all worth while.
I try very hard through pictures and detailed descriptions to portray the item as accurately as possible. Some fabrics or trim may become unavailable, but the replacement will be as close to original as possible. Any changes or variations are also noted in the costume's description.
