Designer of the Week - Miss Priss

This week get to know Brooke Hughes of Miss Priss. She lives in Murfreesboro TN with her husband and 2 children; Paxton 5, Molly Rose 2.

See her current eBay auctions: Miss Priss.

JM: When did you get started sewing and creating?

BROOKE: My grandmother and my mother taught me how to sew. I have made home decor stuff several times, but in January I started making little girls clothing. I have a very sweet friend talked me into trying to make clothing. I really did not think I could do it, and know I have a hard time walking away from sewing!!!

JM: When did you start selling your designs on eBay?

BROOKE:I only sell on ebay, I think it is a great way to sell your items and I find it fun.

JM: Do you remember the first outfit you sold on eBay?

BROOKE: The first outfit I made was an a-line dress with ruffle pants. I think it sold for $30.00

JM: How did come up with your name, Miss Priss?

BROOKE: We have always called Molly Rose "Miss Priss", she models the clothing with all her attitude, so there is the name!!

JM: Do you belong to any boutique group?

BROOKE: I am with Lil Peas.My friend also talked me into this one!! I love chatting with the girls and everyone is so helpful.

JM: Do you have a favorite item to create?

BROOKE: I love to create a new design, when this happens I can not sew fast enough

JM: If you could learn some new skills, what would they be?

BROOKE: I would love to know how to take great pictures. My great friend takes all of mine and sometimes I think that is why my items do so well. I depend on her for lots of stuff!!! I am not real good at the computer and she also walks me through all of the steps. I might like to be a computer geek!

JM: If you could travel anywhere, where would it be?

BROOKE:I would love to travel somewhere that there is a super wal-mart with only fabric. Ha, Ha Fabric is my weakness!!

JM: What other things do you enjoy besides sewing?

BROOKE:I love staying home with my children. It is a blessing and I do not miss very many milestones.

Got your card from your mom adn thought I would look you up and found this feature article. Congrats! It all looks great and Molly Rose is adorable! Good luck!

Here is my answer!!! I try to never make an outfit twice, and I only make the size that fits my little girl. That way if they do not sell, Molly Rose gets a new outfit. I also only make 3 or 4 outfits a week and I only sell on ebay!! Thanks for all the kind words!
