About Us

Nina started sewing at an early age and as three daughters arrived her fingers were kept busy sewing for everyday and of course for special family events such as Christenings, Weddings and First Holy Communion. Friends and family admired her work and the word spread about her absolute passion for sewing garments for children and so “little Dream” was born.

Nina has qualifications from overseas and within Australia specialising in Hand embroidery and Honeycomb Smocking. Nina has participated in many exhibitions over the years and has been commissioned to make garments for Miss Italia and Miss Universe pageants. She worked from her private showroom for over 20 years and opened her store in Leichardt in 2003 where she continues to provide a unique service to those wanting superior ready made garments and children’s special occasion garments of heirloom quality.

Of course Nina continues to create special new designs for garments for her own numerous grandchildren, family is the source of her inspiration.
