Nissa dress


This is Nissa. She lives in a small country in Africa in an orphanage with about 19 other children. Nissa is a Heavenly Princess, but she doesn’t get to dress like one.


This is the Nissa dress. Every cent earned from the sale of dresses made in this style will go to help Nissa and the other children who live with her. My goal is not only to offer this dress in doll sizes, but in girls’ sizes as well. Each dress will be made in the same general style (halter top, long, full skirt, elastic waist) but will be one-of-a-kind in fabric and embellishments.

Brown Jumper for an elderly friend

Inspiration: A client! A friend of my grandma has trouble finding clothes that fit her well, and that she can get into easily, as she spends most of her time in a chair or a scooter.

Materials: Simplicity 3532, brown suede (both provided by client)

Construction: I made a size 16, but I took quite a bit out of the center back and front. By doing this, the shoulder straps won’t fall off her shoulders (they’re quite wide-set in the original design). I also lengthened it and added some fullness to the skirt.
