There’s something timeless and captivating about vintage clothing—each piece seems to tell a story, and one dress-making mama knows this better than most. Christy Dawn Petersen, the creative force behind the Los Angeles label Christy Dawn, creates the most beautiful vintage-inspired dresses in limited quantities. We visited the talented designer and mother-of-one’s Santa Monica bungalow where she lives with her Survivor-winning husband, Aras, and their adorable 14-month-old son, River.

I really enjoy reading these profiles. Would Mother Mag ever consider featuring a stay-at-home mama who maintains a sense of style and self despite not working outside the home? It would be fun to see a role model mom who is at home like so many of us.

Stunning home to raise a family!
