I have always been a maker of things ever since I can remember, textiles being of particular interest. When my daughter was born, I started looking around for some cute things for her to wear, but then figured I could just make what I wanted. When people started asking me where I was getting her clothing, little girl Pearl was born. I believe it is the surprising color and print combinations along with the details that count. Many are fully reversible, or grow with her from a dress to a tunic as she gets older. I love to use piping, rick rack, and other fun trimmings for a unique look, and I love working with modern fabrics. Trends come and go, but classic styles never go out of fashion.
