About Anita by Design

Anita Morris – Creator/Editor

Hello, and welcome to my blog!  I’ve created this space to inspire style, confidence, and creativity for women of all ages.  I believe that when a woman discovers and embraces her own personal style, it boosts confidence and opens the door for amazing creativity with her wardrobe and all areas of life.  When you add sewing to this equation and equip her with the tools needed to create her own garments—that’s where the magic happens.  She is no longer confined to what the fashion industry tells her she should wear.  She now has the power and tools to create fashion that compliments her own personal style and body type.

I’m a huge supporter of sisterhood; encouraging, building up, teaching, and empowering other women.  God has blessed me with an amazing talent and I want to share it with anyone who will listen and learn.  I have a special place in my heart for raw beginners, the ones who have never touched a sewing machine, and I know how important it is to have someone teach the basics, step-by-step, with great detail.  That’s exactly what I aim to do through my blog and video tutorials.  As a seamstress, there is no greater joy than to hear someone tell me that I’ve been instrumental in helping them learn to sew.

My passion for sewing began in my mid-twenties.  I learned the basics of garment construction by taking a few beginner lessons at a studio in Los Angeles,  Since then, I have continued to build upon that foundation by teaching myself to become a great seamstress.

I’m a woman of God, wife, and mother of two adult sons.  I love fashion and tea parties–the two fit together so well.  There’s something so enchanting about sewing up a beautiful dress, styling it with my best accessories and taking high tea with my girlfriends.  Oh, the beauty of it makes me squeal!

My motto:  When you live in your DESIGN, it is from there that God SHINES!  That means when you live according to the way you have been created, it is from that place where God will use you to reach others, for His glory.


  • STYLE is who you are!
  • CONFIDENCE is what you demonstrate!
  • CREATIVITY is what you do!

Whether you are here as a beginner, returning to sewing, are a well-seasoned seamstress, or simply love fashion, you will find lots of inspiration and encouragement on the pages of my blog.  Enjoy your visit!  I thank you for stopping by!
