So and Sew

Magic happens in this room when it is occupied by fashion designer Peggy Shepard. This creative space is an addition to her beautiful Atlanta home. Peggy makes the most amazing clothing using vintage finds that she has acquired or ones that you may have and bring to her. She redesigns these Vintage pieces into works of art that you can wear and enjoy. Peggy also creates stunning one of a kind Mother of the Bride, Graduation, and Prom dress. This creative space is also a teaching space where she happily passes on her knowledge to anyone interested in the needlework ropes.
