On of my favorite dresses in my own wardrobe, is a 70's vintage piece that I got in high school. I keep in mind when making my own pieces, that this dress has lasted so many years and I have loved wearing it since the day I got it.

I want a Better Than Jam piece to be held dear and last forever. Walk around in or with one of my creations. Thank you. Enjoy!
