Every item on this site is hand-crafted from pre-loved clothing, fabric scraps and other repurposed materials. Each one an original.

This is a very romantic soft gray dress with a grey and pale blow lace top. I have added olive green, gray, light blue, and green acccents with ribbon, lace, vintage buttons, and a hand made flower made from a vintage necktie. It has an elastisized top and also ties in the back with a ribbon. It has exposed, zig-zag stiching that adds to that shabby chic look. It has an asymetrical hemline...hanging lower in the banck then the front. This adds to the romantic feeling of this dress. Great for a summer event or tea party.

THIS IS A One Size fits most...sm to XL.

DRY CLEAN OR HAND WASH AND DRY FLAT.

Garage sales, thrift store shopping, or dumpster diving used to be so well, “ick!”. Now it's chic. Instead of restoring something let’s turn it into something better. This OOAK creation contains reconstructed / up-cycled / recycled / repurposed / pre-loved materials. I try to only use new materials when I have to

I find stuff garage sales, at estate sales and second hand stores. Then I start chopping, draping, cutting and sewing. I try to keep things simple but sometimes they may end up looking like a float in the Rose Parade! I let each piece speak to me and tell me what it wants to be. My goal is to add something special: hand made flowers, vintage lace, quirky old buttons, broken jewelry, embroidered linens, vintage neck ties, whatever, to each piece. To make each piece ONE OF A KIND. Not a bad approach for clothes or life.

.Remember: the things we throw away are often more special than the things we replace them with.

Thanks for looking.

Please note: due to the uniqueness of handmade items, sizes may vary a bit and monitor displays may not represent colors accurately but I try to get the best shots possible.
