Oh how fun this has been, thanks etsy!!

How retro is it to have a garment made in the USA, where 95% of clothing used to be manufactured until the 1960s, and now only 5%? Bringing back the tradition of fantastic vintage style clothes, made in the USA.

I've been collecting rockin vintage patterns, buttons, and fabrics for the past 15 plus yrs to make myself custom clothes as I am way too tall to fit in the originals. I am privileged to make 30s, 40s, and 50s style clothing, carefully constructed in deadstock fabrics from vintage patterns. It's fun to create a little flair in your everyday world. I live in LA, the garment capitol of the country, and have access to all kinds of fabrics and trims. I try to source my materials from independent suppliers and utilize eco-friendly natural fiber fabrics whenever possible…

Thank you so much to all the bloggers that have featured me, some standouts are:
