L.C. Designs - Custom Sewing To Accent Your Personal Style

Fur coats transformed into a cozy blanket...
Sexy Sassy Aprons...
Beautiful Window Treatments...
Need I say more?

I didn't think so.  Let me introduce you to a friend and fantastic seamstress Lucia Clark, with L.C. Designs located in Steele Creel area. 

I have known Lucia for several years now and  knew about her skills and talents as a seamstress from remembering outfits she had designed and sewed for kids in our Mom's group.  However I quickly learned her true joy for her business when I walked into her house one day last week.  Needless to say, I just love when I see someone take a Living room or Dining Room or any room for that matter and turn it into their "Passion Room."

It tells me that you are doing what you love, even if it takes over  a room in your house.  And rightfully so.  Lucia studied Fashion Design at Centinary College in New Jersey, and has been surrounded by creativity and sewing her whole life (her Mom a seamstress, her brother an artist).  Lucia has turned her own talents into a unique business offering - a variety of creations for just about anyone. 
Her creations include:
  • Customized Handbags
  • Children's Clothing (sizes 9 months - 6 years)
  • Window Treatments (including installation)
  • Nursery Design and Bedding Coordination
  • Fun and colorful Kitchen Aprons
And much more...  L.C. Designs also offers alterations and Lucia is happy to sew together outfits that her customers design.  Most recently she sewed an outfit for an entire family for a Disney trip.  Local mom, Amber Greenwalt provided the design and fabric choices, and Lucia, armed with her sewing machine, brought Ambers concept for the outfits to life.

"I am a very visual person" Lucia tells me.  She flips through idea books constantly, tucking away ideas and certain designs for future projects.  She can sketch just about anything and is happy to consult with her customers on design plans for any room in the house, kids outfits, bedding and more.  She also offers teaching for those  of you who would like to learn more about sewing and design.  In a nut shell, you will appreciate Lucia's talent and her skilled work, and enjoy the professional technique and expertise she brings to custom design projects that fit your life.  She has years of experience with an elegant eye for style and creativity, whether it's something for your family or just for you. 

Lucia has lived in Charlotte for four years, is a Mom of two boys, and her husband Joe is one of her biggest supporters.  So much so that he made this custom sign for her that hangs proudly in their home:

Joe also helps out on projects that require some carpentry work.  Having a handy husband helps Lucia when she designs a project for a room.  Designs can also be transported not just to fabric but also wood.
