about

Hi, I'm Lisa and I'm a dressmaker and needlework artist specializing in bespoke couture heirlooms. 

I started sewing very early in childhood, and I have been a lifelong student of the timeless art of creating garments. I have many years of training, and over twenty years of sewing experience. 

I am especially enamored with the process of beginning with a vision and bringing it to life. 

Having achieved a professional skill level in dressmaking, I now specialize in the couture techniques of intricate embroidery, appliqué, and beadwork displayed in one of a kind gowns. 

I live in the suburbs of Chicagoland with my family. I document a behind the seams look at my creative process on my instagram, and vlog on my youtube channel.
