A Fitting Creation - Indianapolis, IN  (click to view)

Dianne Frewer, Owner of A Fitting Creation, began her lifelong passion for sewing by helping her mother with dance and stage costumes for her dance recitals.  In 1976 she started her sewing business.  While she seldom turns down a project, she concentrates her skills in two areas: everyday wear; suits, jackets, skirts and slacks, with an emphasis on proper fit and comfort, and formal, wedding and evening attire. She was commissioned by the Indianapolis Museum of Art for a black velvet skirt which was displayed under a Bill Blass jacket.  Some of the more unusual projects she has completed include soft-sided luggage and beverage cart covers for an airline’s elite charter service.

Dianne has always had a full time job aside from her sewing. Her mainstream experience includes bookkeeping for Circle City Legal Secretaries from 2000 to 2003; budget administrator for the Carmel, Indiana, Police Department, computer manager for a wholesale beverage company and currently as a bookkeeper with an Indianapolis law firm.  She also owns Legal Timekeepers, LLC through which she sells, installs and supports legal time and billing software.

Multimedia Study

This video was made with around 50-70 pics from the ole family vacation this past October 2006.  I was born in Vicenza, Italy in '64.  Four of my mom's 5 kids, one sister in-law and a nephew took her back to see friends she had not seen in 40 years.  The trip was indescribable.  All of the old friends repeated 'bravo' to her for making the trip at 78 years old.  This short film of our vacation is in honor of our mom.  A huge shout out to JoAnn !!  You did it girl !!

And now for some old skool :)
