Hello, I’m Darcy and was born and raised in Fayetteville Arkansas. I am a self taught seamstress and I have been sewing for over 15 years. Originally I started working for a few local theaters and dance groups making costumes. In 2014 I started my kids clothing line “Darwin and Delilah”. Then in 2017 I opened “Crimson and Clover” a vintage and handmade clothing shop in south Fayetteville.
Currently I live in Prairie Grove with my sweet husband and four incredible children. I have always had a strong interest in fashion and design. Most of my pieces are vintage inspired and I often use vintage and upcycled materials to create them. I love incorporating embroidery and appliqué into my work and I always strive to come up with something fun and unique!
