I started this journey a few years ago with nothing more than a strong passion to create things that I would want to buy. I simply didn't want to wear short skirts or deal with them riding up my legs anymore. I had grown into a woman and I wanted my clothing to reflect that. I wanted longer skirts that didn't ride up in the back. I wanted body conscious dresses that flattered my curves without being uncouth. I wanted feminine and sexy in a world full of skimpy and naked. I got tired of looking and decided to create my own.
After hours of cutting, feeble attempts at sewing, designing dresses and then starting over again... . I have come to realize that my passion for design began in childhood where I spent countless hours watching my mother sew. She made beautiful dresses, ornate children's clothing and wedding gowns. I would watch her sew for hours and begged her to teach me to cut fabric as I sat on the living room floor. I enjoyed picking out patterns, fabrics and asking her to change this or that detail. Those early childhood memories have provided the framework for ille and Co.
I am living my truth, laughing at my mistakes and absolutely LOVING the process of creating simple designs that flatter curvier figures. I hope you enjoy!
