Vicki started in the fashion industry as a cutter at Switched On Limited in Santa Monica California. Later she taught a little girl how to sew and helped her figure out how to make doll clothes for her 17 inch Kimberly doll. Yes – you got it – that little girl was Cinnamon! Vicki is the guru behind the guru – the amazing seamstress who taught Cinnamon all the tricks of the trade. Now she serves as the official “cutter” for Liberty Jane Clothing.
