About

I studied doll clothes making under my mother starting around age 8.She made dance costumes and would give me her glittery bright scraps to play with. I started by just tying them around my Barbie dolls in a very barbaric fashion. Eventually she showed me how to use the sewing machine, and that's when things really got fun! I like to work primarily with repurposed/ recycled and vintage materials, but I use new stuff too. Sometimes I even mix 'em all together.
