My Story / Press

petite fashion designer


My name is Marisol, I am a fashion designer and at 4’ 11” I know first hand how frustrating shopping can and finding clothes that fit my petite proportions has always been a struggle. Lucky for me, my mom and grandmothers introduced me to sewing at a very young age and I was making my own clothes by the time I was a teenager.

After studying Clothing and Arts Design at a Vocational High School, I began to build my wardrobe with unique pieces that fit my petite proportions perfectly! After years of continuing to learn new skills and solving my own fitting issues, I realized that I wanted to help other women do the same.

That is why I started sharing sewing tips, tutorials, and behind the scenes videos on my YouTube channel. I also began offering sewn items and one-of-a-kind pieces on my website for all of my non-sewing friends---and soon I will have a sewing pattern collection available for all of my petite sewing friends!

If you have any questions or inquires, please feel free to email me directly at or use the "Contact Me" form at the bottom of the page.
