Dorothy Ling Lin fled from communist China to HK in the 1950'a. At 12, she took pattern drafting and tailoring from a master tailor during summer breaks. Upon graduating from high school in HK, she came to the US and enrolled in the UW where she met her husband. Hence her name is Dorothy Skea now.
Her design concept is to create garments that are timeless and flattering on women. Her signature pieces always have multiple seams to give the garment a good fit. This enables her to mix and match colors, textures, and patterns for an artistic look. She makes her fabrics by piecing hand-dyed and hand-painted fabrics together. Her garments are then made from these one of a kind fabrics. Her attention to detail is noticeable in all her work.
For more info of her work, you can contact her by email. She will be happy to email you pictures of more designs.
