We have moved!

     It is official! Our new location is 8011 Horizon Dr, Colorado Springs, CO, 80920. This is a more convenient location for my clients to the south of Monument, and still easily accessible for my clients to the north.

Since my daughter and her family are coming to visit this week - to attend another daughter's baby shower - I will be back to business as usual on April 12. Looking forward to seeing my youngest grandson!

There is still time for late April and early May weddings and proms. Give us a call!

Big News!

We have some exciting news! We are moving to a new location! We will be more central in the Briargate area of Colorado Springs.

Unfortunately, this means we will be closed for a little bit while we relocate. We will be back to business as usual early in April.

Feel free to contact us with any questions you may have, or to schedule your wedding gown or formal dress fitting for after April 4.

More information coming soon!

Have a blessed Easter!


Fall Projects

Hello, Everyone! It was wonderful to be with my daughter as she gave birth to her first child! Of course, he is indescribably beautiful! It sure was hard to leave him.

Since there are less weddings to work on at this time of year, I've been working on some other projects. One of my long-time favorite clients is a NICU nurse, and she asked me to make some little Halloween costumes for babies at the hospital where she works. That was great fun!

Now, I'm working on modifying some training suits for The Luge Man. Way out of my comfort zone! I'll have more to tell about that in a few weeks. You can read more about him on his website: http://ruben-gonzalez.com/

Happy Thanksgiving to all!
I'm leaving the U.S. again!

This time, I'm not going quite as far as West Africa. I'll be in Calgary, Alberta, Canada, visiting my youngest daughter and her husband. Their first baby is due October 13! My third grandson!

Hoping to be there for his birth, and to help my daughter as a new mom, I'm leaving October 11 and will return October 25.

I will have no phone service, and won't be spending much time on the internet, as you can imagine, so communication will be very limited. However, I'll be back to business as usual on October 26 - with photos to share :).

Thank you for your patience!

I'm back!

The very best part of my 2-month trip to West Africa was spending time with my daughter and son-in-law, being able to see and be involved in their lives.

I also enjoyed choosing
 beautiful African fabrics and having my clothes custom made.


It was a great privilege to be involved with the Dorcas Widows Project.

I spent many hours at several sewing centers learning and making friends.

I was able to visit some villages.

I even got to ride a camel in the Sahara Desert :).

And many, many more adventures! What a fascinating time!

 Now I'm back to business as usual, but dreaming of my next trip to Africa!

On my way to West Africa!

Well, after months of preparation and training, I'm ready to head out to Niger! My daughter and son-in-law, who live there, are preparing a room for me. The women of the Dorcas Widows Project are preparing a place for me to serve. Praying for no glitches en route.

I'm looking forward to being involved in my daughter's life, being a light in other women's lives, and experiencing a whole new world! 

I'm also excited about having a tailor make clothes for me for the first time EVER. :)

I will be back mid-February and resume business as usual. Merry Christmas to all!

One year ago last Monday, this young man was killed in his own yard by a drunk driver who ran off the road. That same evening, his sister Nicole was in the hospital giving birth to her precious baby girl, Brielle. I can't even imagine the emotional impact on their family of having the anniversary of Brielle coming into this world and Andrew leaving it on the same day. 
To help honor her brother on her daughter's birthday, Nicole gave me the privilege of making this dress for Brielle from Andrew's shirt.
There is some comfort in knowing Andrew is in the arms of Jesus and these two will meet someday!
