Hello, I'm Elizabeth Kelley. I am a mom of 2 beautiful boys living in the beautiful central coast of California

This site is a fashion source and sewing guide to learn as a beginner or get more creative ways to make garments..

I grew up in a small town in California the youngest of 5 kids.  Rachel my sister and I are kind of like the flower children in our Italian English American family and that is how we came up with La Fiore Sisters.  We were introduced to tailor, custom made clothes from my grandma Millie.  She made the most beautiful garments for my mother.  It was only disappointing when I grew out of them, yes my mother's clothes from the 60s!  Timeless works of art.  My first sewing project was when I was 6 years old.  I found material, thread and a needle and made myself a little satchel.  Years later I worked with and was inspired by our friend Sallee Anne who designed and made children clothes.  Sallee helped me with one sewing project at a time, giving me instructions for each step.  I also watched her as I worked beside her for a couple of years and saw how things came together.  Before long I was able to figure out how to make my own patterns.  I must add, if I got stuck, I always had her to help. I jumped in and started designing, pattern making and sewing prom dresses and wedding dresses.  Sewing can be frustrating so its good to have a friend and a second set of eyes!  Despite the challenges and sleepless nights of finishing a project I absolutely love it!  You get a sense of pride when you make something and finish it all by yourself... and that can be anything.  So sew it, make it, build it, wear it and be proud :)  Stay tuned and I hope I can help you to be inspired to make your own works of art to wear! I grew up in a small town in California the youngest of 5 kids.  Rachel my sister and I are kind of like the flower children in the family and that is how I came up with LaFioreSisters to mix in our Italian heritage.   My mother did sew some of our yearly dresses as children and her mother was a natural talent at sewing tailor made clothes.   My first sewing project was when I was 6 years old.  I found material, thread and a needle and myself a little satchel.  Years later I worked with and was inspired by our friend Sallee Anne who designed and made children clothes.  She taught me to sewby working on my own projects and her telling me what to do each step of the wayIf anything came easy it was watching and learning from her.  Before long I was able to figure out how to make my own patterns.  I must add, if I got stuck, I always had her to help though.
