Proudly featured in

​​​I was absolutely ecstatic to be invited to design an costume for Tori Spelling's son to wear in the October 2011 Parenting Magzine: Early Years issue.  

My son went on to rock the costume for our own photo shoot and the costume was featured in glo.msn magazine a few weeks later.

In October 2009, my Max costume inspired from the classic children's book Where the Wild Things Are was featured in Today's Parent Magazine in Canada.  


I have been a creative person as long as I can remember, dabbling in drawing, fine art, jewelry - you name it, I probably tried it. Sewing, however, just seemed to become my niche and I have been sewing since I was about 7 years old. Both of my grandmothers were incredibly talented seamstress each in their own rite, so it was no surprise to my family, I inherited that talent. I love everything about sewing, from coordinating the fabrics and sketching out the design to transforming that fabric into something fabulous to make someone feel wonderful.  

I started my company, Correen's Creative Designs in 2002 as a way to supplement my dreary day job in Human Resources.  In 2004, my husband and I decided building my business around our 3 sons was a better fit. In fact, it was a great fit, one that has allowed me to grow professionally and creatively and to honestly be able to say I absolutely love my job!

I am meticulous about the details, materials and workmanship that go into creating my pieces.  I believe quality, durability and uniqueness are very important and I hope you find my work to be all the above.

Thanks for stopping by!
