Ellen Lumpkin Brown - The Doll Loft

Ellen Brown I am Ellen Lumpkin Brown, the founder of the Doll Loft and author of Doll Fashionistas! - Sewing Stylish Dolls and their Wardrobes. I am totally passionate about sewing!  I've been sewing most of my life - my mother and grandmother taught me the basics and I started making my own clothes in junior high school.  From those early days, sewing made me feel powerful!  I knew I had the ability to make what I wanted - clothes, curtains, pillows, quilts - whatever!  I never felt at the mercy of what I found on the shop shelves.

When I began my career in finance, I stopped sewing, I didn't have time.  But later, when my sons came along, I opened up the machine and began sewing again making quilts, costumes and toys for them.  Their plush toys led a me to experiment with dolls - maybe because all of my children were boys - who knows??  I am a self-taught dollmaker.  I love making dolls - I think it harkens back to that feeling of empowerment when I first began to sew.  The girls in my neighborhood began to visit my sewing room where we would make clothes for the dolls - they would draw outfits and we would stitch them up together.  I could see how much they enjoyed it and I did too! The experience was especially meaningful to me because I knew that they would not learn to sew in school like I did.
