Let me introduce myself…

I am Lona Smith, originally from Denmark, but have lived in Southern California since 1968.

I started sewing in 1969

The Lead-up to Dance…

In the corporate world, Marketing, Computing, Efficiency Expert, Analyst & Trainor were my main hats that I wore for nearly 35 years.

During this same time frame, I got married to a great guy, and we had our own little family. 

Marriage & family is what took sewing to a new level: home decor, Hawaiian shirts, baby layettes & children’s wear.  I started sewing knits 1982 and Spandex in 1993, when my daughter started dance.

Sewing Spandex since 1993

Let’s Collaborate…

And create something fabulous together!

Volume costumes…

Daughter Tracy, now a master teacher, opened a dance studio, and the need for costuming, alterations, props & accessories grew exponentially. I also costumed my own students. 

Sewing costumes as a hobby allows me to continue my creative niche. Each year, I offer ample time to create each & every costume that I commit to do in a manner that my customers expect: quality craftmanship & an excellent fit, all done with name-brand embellishments & supplies.
