I love knowing why people do what they do. Here’s my “why”:
I love to sew.
I come from a long line of creative women. My mother, grandmothers and great grandmothers loved to cook, to sew, to reuse (way before it was cool and responsible to recycle), to quilt. I regret that I didn’t learn from Grandma E. when I had the chance. Oh, she tried, but I really didn’t listen or watch or learn much. I didn’t do too well in home ec either. That’s not Mrs. L’s fault. Sewing just wasn’t my thing. Then, in college, I needed a poodle skirt. My mom told me to make my own. So I did, using her little Singer Featherweight.
From that time one, I dabbled. I’ve hemmed pants, I made curtains and pillows, I’ve sewn up purses. I’ve even figured out how to sew clothes that flatter me and rival anything you could buy at high-end boutiques.
Then I had children…
When my daughter was born, I made her first Halloween costume (a little orange sleep sack and orange cap). Pumpkins are perfect when you’re one week old.
My mom and I made the bedding and curtains for her room, nightgowns, and Easter dresses. When my son came along a few years later, I began tackling jon jons. I learned to applique and I got a much nicer, newer sewing machine. I began creating garments as gifts for friends. Then friends began asking to purchase jon jons and jumpers.
When I needed a name for my business, I knew I wanted something that expressed the idea that I create garments customized completely for each little one. I believe that each child has their own God-given special personality. I hope to offer you the garment that perfectly captures your child’s sweet spirit. So, PersonaliTy Children’s Clothes was born.
I love that I can offer customers exactly what I want when shopping for my own children–quality products, completely customized and well made. Thanks for taking the time to shop with me.
