About

I blog about dressing for your body type. I strongly believe that every woman has the right to feel good about herself no matter her size or shape. I try to help women do just that.

Dresses are just pretty curtains without the women that wear them. Without a woman's curves, a dress would just be a lifeless piece of fabric. I think designers forget this.

I want to start a clothing line that caters to women. Real women. Women with love handles. Women that have had babies. Women with a little extra in the middle. Women that don't quite know what to do with their bodies.... 

I have designed a full line of spring/summer clothing for women of all body types. I designed 5 pieces for each body type. That's 25+ pieces. I want to produce them and set them out on the runway - worn by real women. 

Each piece is going to be handmade. (I have a lot of experience making clothing. I learned to sew when I was five years old. During high school, I made a lot of the clothing I wore. While in college, I had a working scholarship in the Costume Shop at Missouri Southern State University. Just in the past few years, I spent 6 months as the volunteer Costume Director at the Center for the Arts in Murfreesboro.) I don't want to make mass-produced clothing. I'm going to work my fingers to the bone to ensure perfection on every single piece in this line. 

To do this I need some passionate people that want to support this cause by affording me the resources I would need to produce these pieces, and introduce them into the world.

When I reach my goal, that's the start I need to produce each piece for the runway. Once the pieces have been made, they will be modeled for order. Each piece will be able to be custom ordered for your body to further ensure that it fits and flatters you. 

If I make anything over my goal it will go to planning a fashion show, a photo shoot, publicity, etc. My plan is to do an informal show for the Spring/Summer 2012 line.

If I don't reach my goal, I don't get any of the funding and I'll be starting out slowly on my own. It could take YEARS.... So....

Who's with me?If you can pledge, please do. If you can't pledge, please share it with your friends. Every little bit helps. 

Thanks so much for your support in this endeavor!
