First Encounters in the Wonderful World of Fashion

My passion for sewing and creating began at a very young age!  I was fortunate that my mother was a seamstress.
Scrapes of fabric from her projects were used to create gowns.
 Shoe boxes of enveloped  patterns for my Barbie's clothing and costumes still exist at my mother's! 

 Where to Begin:

And here are some of my favorites:

Yves Saint Laurent coloring book, "Album da colorare", Gallucci.

"Come una principessa" by Alessandra Bedin is an amazing pop-up book!

Along with tape measure, pincushion, and sketch pad- Barbie, "I can be a fashion designer",  by Mattel! 

And Last But Not Least:

The sewing kit which contains everything needed to begin sewing!  Click on the photo of the sewing kit and you can also find a PDF containing doll clothing patterns!
