Nothing is safe from my clutches if I think it can be used! I have repurposed abandoned wedding dresses, reuseing lace and appliqué I have harvested from them. I have torn up fabrics from bridesmaids dresses and window curtains, vintage lingerie or linens. Sometimes I hand dye them to see what happens. They inspire me.

I invite you to adorn yourself in beauty.......
