Meet Rebecca Dzierzon!
I am blessed to be a mother of four wonderful children. Sometimes I try to remember how things were in my “previous” life–the life that one has before becoming a mommy! When I look at my dolls, memories of my

I’ve loved American Girl dolls since I was a girl and started sewing for my Felicity shortly after I bought her. Oh how I loved those dolls! However, my collection slowly ended up in a wooden trunk and by the time I was in High School I figured I was too old for dolls. I visited my parent’s home after I got married and dusted off my doll collection. I realized I had never outgrown them and decided to take them with me across the Atlantic to my new apartment in Germany.

After getting back into sewing, I was inspired by “Keepers Dolly Duds” doll clothes designs. I went through lots of fabric and became quite familiar with my seam ripper during those first few years. After I was confident enough in my finished products, I set up an Etsy shop, had my photography-inclined sister show me how to take good pictures and was ecstatic when my first outfit sold within a day! Since then, I have sold several other dresses and have published two patterns (sold via PIxie Faire).
My business started out as Rebecca Dzierzon but has since changed to Fashioned by Rebecca (let’s be honest, my last name is weird and hard to remember).
