My name is Dawn Port and I’m a freelance seamstress and costume designer. I have been sewing and creating pieces of art out of fabric close to three decades. You can find me usually sewing away on some new design I imagined. Im currently working on starting a business that will utilize my passion.
I have sewn a wide variety of clothing styles. I’ve done kids and baby clothes to unique original costume designs. I’m starting to really enjoy historical costumes to just plain fantasy type too.
In my creations I have created some with commercial patterns but I’m also comfortable altering or created my own. I really like to use a dress form, but for menswear I prefer to use a pattern.
I have many talents, drawing, crocheting, knitting, photography, crafts just to name a few. If you long for a special dress or a costume that will simply stand out from the crowd. Dawns Custom Creations can help you make your dream come true.
