"When Elizabeth mentioned that she had been designing and sewing her own clothes, I was excited to work with her on something for myself, as I had never had that opportunity in the past. Everything about the process was intentional. She took my measurements and brought a test garment for me to try on to see if I liked the fit and the style. The fabric that she chose, a soft gray, raw silk, is so beautiful and soft. It was perfect through the cold winter as a bottom layer, but also serves nicely in warmer weather as it is not too heavy. The design is simple and classic so it can be worn often, for both formal and informal occasions. Beyond the versatility of the garment, the connection that I feel to it is one that I don't feel to all of my other clothing. When you know who made your clothes, you think about them differently. They are not mass produced - you won't see them on anyone else. Knowing that Elizabeth took the time to design something specifically for me transforms the garment into a piece of art, a gift. It was a privilege to work with Elizabeth on the shirt that she made me. I hope to work with her again in the future." - ML - Mom & Small Business Owner


"I absolutely love the tunic that Elizabeth made for me. From the beginning of the process, she checked in with me to see exactly what I was looking for in the piece. I had wanted a versatile maternity top that was hip and versatile enough to last beyond my pregnancy, and Elizabeth made sure that the fabric, style, and fit were all exactly what I wanted (even when I didn't know what I wanted!). The garment has washed well and held up beautifully, and I wore it constantly during my pregnancy. Now I look forward to altering it with her as a non-maternity top because it's so awesome!" - JHM - Musician, Mom, & Small Business Owner
