Yes, his beard is real!! This is a co-worker who needed a Santa's outfit. The outfit has the coat, pants, hat and sack. It was an easy outfit to make except for the trim. The trim was purchased as a band trim instead of a fabric cut. The collar is cut on a curve. I had to piece the trim to show the least amount of seams. My co-worker was happy with the results and so was I.
Growing up on our farm in France, my mother taught me how to sew at the age of 7. I found at that young age a passion for making doll clothes from my mom’s leftover scraps.
My children enjoyed many handmade clothing, unique Halloween costumes and formal gowns. Now my grandchildren are the recipient of my talent.
My love for sewing has grown to include making costumes for plays and opera, creating historical costumes for children and adults, wedding dresses, and American Girl doll outfits.
Recently, I finally decided to turn my passion into something more and I’m excited to open my experience and skills to those in want of custom costumes.
I’m looking forward to helping you create your own one-of-a-kind creation.
