Hey sewers! I’m Laura, one of the designers and owners of Petite Stitchery & Co. I’m so excited to finally be able to share our company and I can’t wait to be able to show off all of our amazing designs. More about the collection later, now a little about me.
I grew up in California and Arizona but now I am very proud to call New Orleans home with my husband, Aaron, and our twin girls, Megan and Mia.
In New Orleans, we don’t need a reason to celebrate, we celebrate all things! We love beignets and king cakes ….
(recognize Ashley’s little??)
…. mardi gras and jazz fest, street cars and river boats, red beans and white beans!
My girls are the ones who got me sewing again. I started sewing in 5th grade. As a kid, I sewed my own clothes, made pillows for teacher gifts, and baby quilts for my youngest siblings. As I got older, I switched to making things for my home, like curtains, chair covers, and more pillows. When my girls were born I started making doll diaper bags and accessories and toys for them.
My mom told me to start making the girls clothes and I thought, is she crazy?? I have twin girls, how am I going to sew clothing for my girls?? Well, moms are always right, aren’t they? My girls are identical twins and get so upset when people cannot tell them apart. I had a hard time finding clothing that was similar but different and so I started sewing again and haven’t looked back.
As a designer, I like to design clothing that my girls will wear. They’re moving into that “pre-tween” phase where they vacillate from being a twirly girl to a legging and tunic wearing tween. I love making them outfits that they love wearing and find comfortable!! I hope you like them too!!
