About

I have a love of vintage items of all different varieties. I love old movies from the black & white era and musicals are my favorite. Being a costume designer, cosplay loving nerd girl, sometimes goth, vintage lover, seamstress who has spent a lot of time shopping in both vintage and thrift stores; I decided to combine my talents into making aprons. I wanted to try to make something from vintage items that also reflected a past era when women got dressed up nice and put on a pretty apron to serve family and friends. I really had no idea that aprons had come back into popularity. Just like when I am working on a costume I like to take things and make them into something completely different. The process of transforming an item (or items) into something else is the fun part for me.
All of my offerings are one of a kind. I can sometimes replicate a few similar items, but change the details so that each one is completely unique…

All of my offerings are one of a kind. I can sometimes replicate a few similar items, but change the details so that each one is completely unique. I work with a theme in my head such as Halloween or a Haunted Mansion maid, I Love Lucy, Lolita Cosplay or even an Evil Disney Queen. I have a bunch of ideas, most of them being a little on the spooky side for more fun for the upcoming holidays coming soon.
