Our Story


Meet the team...

We are young entrepreneurs enthusiastic about the art of sewing.  Our business began in 2009, with setting up shop in the corner of our family's front porch sewing children's clothing, and has grown into a multi-service sewing facility.  

We offer customized wedding dresses, wedding dress alterations, custom clothing creation, home decor, alterations, repairs, and long arm quilting.  We are so excited every time a client walks into the door of our shop.  

What sets Bella Jean Boutique apart from other sewing facilities is the consistent and streamline communication you will receive throughout the project. At Bella Jean we guarantee that each customer is fully satisfied with their product.  

We look forward to the opportunity to work with you and turning your vision into reality!

My mom taught me to sew when I was young and I loved it.  After high school I decided to start a sewing business and BellaJean Boutique was born.  Over time it evolved from only little girl dresses to designing, creating, and altering bridal gowns.  I love having a business where I can help to bring joy to brides on their important day.  Other passions of mine are being with my husband and baby, baking, gardening, knitting, and diy.

Sewing is something I gradually learned to love.  One day my friend Victoria offered me a job to work for her.  Sewing had never crossed my mind, but I took her up on her offer.  Over my 5 years of working with Victoria, sewing has stitched its way to my heart.  I love the challenge of altering the most intricate bridal gowns and look forward to collaborating with brides to redesign their gowns, making it into their dream dress. Other passions of mine are visiting New York City (still a dream), singing, being with friends, and doughnuts.

I began sewing at 7 years old when I started taking sewing classes here at BellaJean.  It grew into a passion of mine as I experienced the joy of creating.  In my senior year of high school I began working for BellaJean.  Gradually, custom clothing became my specialty.  The creativity and artistry involved to create beauty from cloth is something I look forward to each day.   Other passions of mine are baking, singing, playing flute & cello, and drawing.
