Ready to Wear Dream Coats

In addition to working one on one with our custom clientele, Lisa Marie enjoys exercising her artistic spirit by creating original pieces for the Etsy shop. We release collections of Dream Coats, Hoodies, Sleeves and other accessories occasionally throughout the fall and winter, here on Etsy. Each collection features deliciously soft and cozy, one of a kind coats in sizes Small to XXL. Preview pictures, with sizing information and pricing, are posted on our Facebook page ( and sent to our mailing list. These artist’s choice creations tend to fly out of our Etsy shop within minutes of being posted, but if you are up for the challenge you might just catch a dream come true.

Payment Options

Our custom Dream Coats are billed in 2-3 installments over the course of the creation process, which makes them a fantastic option on a budget.

In case you require additional time to purchase your Dream Coat from one of our collection sales we are also delighted to offer a layaway payment plan that is right for you. Please send us a message prior to the start of the sale to discuss terms to appropriately fit your budget.

A note for you from Lisa Marie:

Hello my fellow Dreamers!

Thank you so much for visiting my shop! I hope you’ll enjoy perusing my Dream Coat photos and getting a feel for my designs, my spirit, and my art. I believe every woman should have at least one special article of clothing that flatters her figure and delights her spirit each and every time she puts it on. To this end, I am first and foremost a seamstress focused on unparalleled quality and fit.

I am passionate about my art, and I’m happiest when I am hand selecting colors and textures to capture a mood or perfectly reflect the personality of a custom client. After a color palette has been carefully chosen from my library of vintage knits, I add lush satin linings and cozy, welted pockets to expertly construct a finely finished piece of wearable art. I encourage you to take a close look at my pictures and feedback, and then shop around Etsy so you can discover for yourself what makes an Enlightened Platypus Dream Coat oh-so-special.

So come on in! Explore, imagine and wrap yourself up in the dream…

Love and Light,
Lisa Marie

Do Something Important Today

The Enlightened Platypus Family is SAVING THE WORLD one Dream Coat at a time! Here at Platty Central, we believe that we all have a responsibility to care for our planet and with your help we can make a difference.
