About Me

Hi!!!  My name is Suzanne and I am the designer behind Winter Wear Designs.  I have three very active kids who grow so fast and are always in need of something new.  I design clothes that my kids can play in, that make them feel special, and that are finished in ways that will keep them comfortable.

I also design for women, because as a curvy gal, shopping in stores can be frustrating.  And sewing up clothes designed for a different body type can be even more frustrating.  I design for curves, but I also include fitting instructions to get the perfect fit for your body based on your shape and measurements.

I studied costume design in college.  Designing for main stage shows, I learned patterning, draping , and the art of translating a sketch into a garment that would fit any member of a cast - not all actors have model bodies!  I have also taken classes on digital pattern grading and drafting, and am constantly self teaching through reading books, online tutorials, and watching YouTube videos.  

If you ever have questions, just ask!  You can find me through e-mail or my Facebook group.
