{Made by Mama}

If you’ve been reading this blog for a while, you probably already know that my Mom is a talented designer. I’m lucky that her favorite clients happen to be my sisters and me. She has designed and made me countless things throughout my life – including almost every single one of my high school dance dresses and the most important dress of all, my wedding dress! I’ve never taken the time to showcase the things she’s made me in one place before, but today while reminiscing on some photos I felt compelled to do just that. This is a tiny fraction of the things she’s crafted for me. I look at these photos and feel so much pride for my talented Mama. She is so creative, inspiring and gracious. I miss her so much every day and getting to wear her creations certainly makes me feel closer to her when I’m so far from home!
I hope you enjoy this peek at a few of the beautiful clothes she’s made me in recent years!

  1. I LOVE the color block dress! Where can I find her designs for sale? Online anywhere? Does she sell in a boutique in Portland? I would seriously take a trip up there just to see her designs.

  2. WOW! I can honestly say I've never been so impressed by the pieces of clothing that anyone's mom has made for them! What a talented woman! I love everything she has designed for you 🙂 You lucky girl!!

  3. her pieces all look so great! your mama has great style and skills, and I'm jealous that you get to reap the benefits. 🙂 my mother used to sew me dresses all the time when I was a little girl, but she stopped before I started caring what I wore – not sure if that's fortuitous or not.

  4. Amazing! Your mother really is talented and and how special that she made you so many beautiful things. Makes your wedding gown all the more meaningful!

    I really hope you wrote your book about your mom – it'd be an interesting read.

  5. seriously your mamma is amazing. when i meet my super wealthy, attractive, caring, giving, selfless, fun, driven, loving boyfriend that then wants to marry me, and he will tell me to spend whatever i want on a wedding dress and i will have your mamma make it for me 🙂

    but really, i need to borrow that color block dress. amazing!

  6. …and now I know why you are literally the best dressed blogger!!

    Your Mama is incredibly talented. If she ever opens up an online shop pleeeease let me know!

  7. I just wanted to let you know that the reason I started following your blog was because of your wedding dress. It is exactly what I want one day. I always had this picture in my head of what I wanted but had never seen it. I was looking for a coral bridesmaid for myself for a friends wedding and your blog came up and I about died when I saw your wedding dress. It's beautiful. I have enjoyed your blog ever since.
