Working on Womenswear

I had a great time making a cloak for my college friend Amy, it has really renewed my love of wool and buttonhole-making! It came out beautifully and reminded me of my time in England. Certain touches were very British- the plaid wool fabric, the silhouette, and the gold/black rope I used to make the neck tie. My goal was to make Amy feel like royalty when she wears the cloak.

Check back for updates and pics as I make more outerwear and some fabulous fake-fur pieces!

Drinks and Crafts, what could be better???

Busy Bee

Hello kittens,

Sorry I have been away for a while! Finally wrapping up some projects like my friend's custom-ordered cloak, and making new designs for something super-special and international that will be coming soon! As always, looking for new custom projects that make people feel fabulous. I am also beginning a new collection with Native American fabrics that will be trimmed with gorgeous fake furs.....

I will be selling my fun jewelry and pouches and clutch purses this Saturday at the Empty Bottle in Chicago. Come out and support your local designers and artists!
