About the Founder
Alice Alexander is led by designer and founder Mary Alice Duff. Frustrated with her own experiences shopping for high-end, well-made, plus size clothes, Mary Alice took up sewing as a way to improve her own wardrobe. Quickly thereafter Mary Alice enrolled in design classes to refine her craft and gain the skills necessary to launch the brand Alice Alexander.
In addition to leading the team at Alice Alexander Mary Alice is also the voice behind the popular plus-size sewing blog, Well Sewn Style. Well Sewn Style provides style-inspiration, pattern reviews and pattern-hacks, sewing instruction, quick tailoring tips for ready-to-wear items and articles on body-positivity and self-love. Through Well Sewn Style Mary Alice offers in person sewing classes in the Philadelphia area.
When she isn’t drawing, stitching or writing you can find Mary Alice chasing after her sassy daughter and spending quality time with her husband. Mary Alice and her happy little family live in Philadelphia, PA, USA.
