Meet the Founder and CEO, Piper


Hi, I am Piper, the founder and CEO of Palouse Dress Company as well as the sole dress pattern designer and lead sewist. My mission is to bring Gunne Sax back to life (and this time make it size inclusive.)

I live in the Palouse region of Washington State. I am a mother to a bright and fun little boy. I have been sewing since I was 8 years old and owe my sewing journey to my Grandmother who was my first sewing teacher. I fell in love with dresses as a little girl and became a Gunne Sax fan about three years ago.

I also love taking photos of beautiful nature and landscapes, as well as singing, writing songs and playing guitar for my band Piper and the Moths.

My favorite season is Spring. Light blue is my favorite color (and perfume.) I love flowers, and some of my many favorites are poppies, peonies, anemones, ranunculus, love in a mist, chamomile, lupine, grasswidows, hellebores, pink lilies, sweet pea, and allium.

I am so happy and proud to be bringing the styles of Gunne Sax to all bodies!
