Etsy Shop Review, Interview, & Giveaway : DeDigna


DeDigna's Shop Announcement:

"Welcome to my Shop #2. Please Visit My Other Shop a Handbags Journey
If your currently in LA, visit my Booth in the store
*Handmade Galleries*
14556 Ventura Blvd
Sherman Oaks, CA 91403
* Every piece of Clothing I create I tried to add something new to or make a design I have never seen before. So every item is completely different from the next to give variety.

I go to what I like to call “My Shopping Expeditions” to find the most unique fabrics at least to my eyes. I start my expedition at the Heart of Los Angeles and walk block from block and carry every yard of fabric that I buy in a little cart. That I have to drag it into the subway and all the way back to the valley were I live. From there I run down shops like Joann’s, others were they Sell fabrics and crafts. I’m such a regular customer that they even know my name at many of these shops.

By the way my name is Denise L. Perez I sew everything you see here with care and love.

How I came up with the name DeDigna. Digna is my Grandmother's name and De in spanish just means: From or belonging to.

If you like to contact me convo me, or email me at

I found this cute shop the other day when browsing around Etsy. She sells the cutest swimwear, scarfs and almost Bohemian like clothing. This is the item that I got for review:
Sorry that pictures are not good quality. I have to use my cell phone due to the lack of a camera. Any who this product can be used more than one way, it can be used as a scarf, belt, shawl; etc. Just about anything you can think of. The fabric is very soft and sewed with good quality. She also has many other color scarfs as the following:

I thought this product was extremely soft and handy. The seller really works with you and answers your questions. Not to mention that the delivery was super fast. It came wrapped in a little plastic bag with her business card taped to the top in case you have any questions.

1. Tell us a little about yourself, the seller behind the store.

Well I’m 22yrs old and I’m currently still living with my parents, but don’t judge me yet. I’m the first in my family to finish College, I majored in Fashion Design, I have always been good with my hands and I grow-up watching my mother sew. So one day when I was about 15yrs, I was bored and I always wanted to learn how to sew, so I beg my mom to let me use her sewing machine she thread it and showed me what everything did. And its been about 7yrs now and I haven’t stopped sewing, I made myself a little handbag, (It was horrible) that my friends seem to like so I made better ones, and sold them. And present time: I’m my own boss and I work from home, I really don’t have a life, From the moment I wake up till I go to sleep I do nothing but sew and I love it.

2. What's your store about? What do you typically sell or sell the most?

Once I finished college at La Trade Tech, I decided to take everything I learn from there and put it into practice, to built up my skill. So its still I working progress. But I have discovered that I really enjoy Sewing Children’s wear and Swim wear, and I usually sale more swimwear then anything else. I also sell Handbags on another shop called :
 3. Why did you decide to open a shop?

I decided on an on-line shop after I had to hand deliver a handful of orders myself. It was just obvious and the greatest decision ever.

4. What does your shop mean to you?

To me my shop is like a trophy, something physical that I can show off. Not in a conceited way but as a proud artist.

5. Random Questions, pick one or as many as you like and tell why.

Crayons or Color Pencils = Color pencils, don’t make your hands hurt.

Anchovies or Pepperoni = Pepperoni because I have never tried anchovies.

Cherries or Blueberries = Blueberries, I like the idea of eating something naturally Blue.
