About Calico Annie

I have been sewing for 45 years and have made and worn costumes of different periods of time.   I have received recognition and awards throughout the years for my designs. I have been in business for 15 years.

I began my love of costumes and dressing up at an early age and did not sew then, but I watched my mother sew.  I loved paper dolls and dressing my Madam Alexander dolls up with scarves and jewelry.  I am offering doll clothing and costumes from different periods of time on my other website.

I also offer women’s and children’s pioneer clothing and costumes as a hobby and have transition into the flower business as a Florist in Melbourne.

I am grateful for the wonderful years and grateful to God who gave me ideas and encouragement, so that I could do what I love to do most for people -sew.  Thank you for giving us your business.
