Both Victoria and Julia credit their ancestor Basya Berkman for their love of clothing and design. In fact, Julia named the Etsy shop in her honor. It is so heartwarming that such an obviously creative and loving woman has such a wonderful legacy.
Here are photos from the visit. Such a wonderful stash of fabrics, trims, colors and beautifully designed dresses and tutus! I came away totally inspired!
These are boxes and boxes of completed costumes, ready for sale.
Here's the sewing area, where samples of new designs are made and sized.
Here's the lovely, long worktable, and Victoria at her desk.
What could be cuter than a poufy purple little girl dress and a bear to match?
