About MY Designs:

I am first and foremost a seamstress who loves to make clothes that flatter the body. Throw in a little whimsy and a lot of imagination and you'll discover what makes my marvelous dream coat designs so unique!

I encourage you to take a close look at my pictures and then shop around Etsy so you can see for yourself what makes an Enlightened Platypus coat special. I take my time with each piece to ensure that it is the very best it can be. I want my creations to be the highest quality garment in your closet!

Here are just a few elements that make an Enlightened Platypus Dream Coat the very top of the line. :D

The Hood
Late one night the bohemian hippy girl in my heart met up with the seamstress in my head and together they schemed to create my exclusive “Fairy Queen” hood. My hoods are expertly lined and structured to give you a flatteringly framed face when they’re up, and a dramatic collar when pushed back.

That Hourglass Figure
Another special feature my coats offer is my professionally tailored waist design. I am continually captivated by that feminine hourglass silhouette, so I had to find a way to give these comfy sweaters a defined waist that could be cinched in as little or as much as you want. Well, through much trial and error, I think I’ve found the perfect solution. Now anyone can look like a sexy minx in my designs! :P

Those Whimsical Zephyr Skirts
Take a look at any of my swirly, twirly pictures to see just how FULL and LIGHT my skirts are! From my love of belly dancing grew a fascination with skirts that move like liquid light. After much experimentation I’ve found a way to make cuddly, huggable knits move just like silk. An Enlightened Platypus coat will turn every step into a dance with the world around you.

Do Something Important Today
The Enlightened Platypus Family is SAVING THE WORLD one coat at a time! I believe that we all have a responsibility to care for our planet and with your help we can make a difference. According to the EPA, 20 billion pounds (that’s right, Billion with a “B”) of clothing are added to our landfills each year, so using upcycled and recycled materials is a way for us to reduce our impact on the environment and keep Mother Nature beautiful and healthy. But just using cool fabrics isn’t enough! By buying an Enlightened Platypus Dream Coat you are making sure charities that help protect our planet continue to do good and necessary work for us all. For every coat sold, a portion of the purchase price is donated to a charity organization that matches the coat’s theme. Favorite charities so far are Oceana, to protect our oceans and marine life, and the World Land Trust, to protect our forests, with more on the way. When you become part of the Enlightened Platypus Family you don’t just talk the bohemian hippie talk, you walk the bohemian hippie walk (and look great doing it)!

Be Daring, Be Unique, Be Enlightened!
