More About Liese & Doll Tag Clothing: We'll let Liese share her story with us in her own words...
I am a mother of 3 living in South Africa, 2 boys and a girl. I come from a sewing family and started at a very young age. I remember sitting with my mom and cutting out her patterns for her while she sewed the most beautiful wedding dresses. My favourite baby doll clothes I own were made by my gran... she added the most beautiful detail with lace and bullion roses to every item she made. My mom and I still work together as digitizers for embroidery machines.
I fell in love with American Girl while travelling in the United States and couldn't wait to start sewing for her. When my daughter was born the fun began! I published my first pattern 3 years ago at PixieFaire and the journey has been a blessing in so many ways! I love being able to create for the dolls and then share it with others to enjoy. With every pattern I have grown and learnt a little bit more.
I am also the proud owner of a small doll line called South African Girl Doll. I believe that every girl should have a doll of her own that she can love and dress as often as she pleases. This is a girl's dream world. Letting Girls be Girls.
