About

Hi, I'm Jillian, and I'd like to thank you for taking the time to find out more about my shop and the process behind it!

I've always loved dressing up. Fashion offers infinite options for how you present yourself to the world and for adding flavor to your daily environment. I especially like bright colors against the dull grays of a cityscape - it's such a delicious contradiction.

As a self-taught seamstress who is always trying new ideas and combinations, I like to make things that can't be found anywhere else. Found objects and repurposed materials find their way into my designs frequently, because I would always rather re-use something than throw it away! Also, I find that incorporating vintage and other recycled materials allows for an immense amount of variety, as does my strategy of designing and creating one-of-a-kind clothing items…

Found objects and repurposed materials find their way into my designs frequently, because I would always rather re-use something than throw it away! Also, I find that incorporating vintage and other recycled materials allows for an immense amount of variety, as does my strategy of designing and creating one-of-a-kind clothing items individually, piece by piece, rather than making anything with pre-made patterns. Over the years I have developed my skills and I am continually fine-tuning them and learning new techniques, so I can bring ever more imaginative ideas to life and share them with you!

I have a wide range of crafting interests, apparent in the variety of media that find their way into my creations. In addition to sewing, I like to draw, paint, make jewelry and work with clay. In my clothing and jewelry making endeavors, I like to combine my skills to create truly unique, thoughtfully constructed pieces that are as fun to wear as they are to make!

Thanks for stopping by to check out my work - I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!
