My Dad Died 3 Years Ago And My Mom Kept The Promise She Made To Him, To Follow Through On Her Dream
My dad died of early onset dementia three years ago. Through out their marriage my mom had a dream of making making clothing for girls, inspired by the fashions and films she loved. She was my dad’s carer over the last years of his life and didn’t have time to devote to this. But she promised him before his death, that she would make her dream a reality.

And she did. She kept her word, her promise and poured her heart and soul into it all.
I am sharing her website with you all because I think it shows what the love and support of two people can accomplish. She has made hundreds of dresses and each piece is unique. Something she would often call my dad, “I’ll tell you one thing, he’s unique; one of a kind.”
Thank you all for looking!
