Playing dress up as a little girl in fabulous vintage clothes from my mom's closet was my heaven! After years of little-kid-romping some repairs became necessary, so it was time to learn to restore them. Luckily my mom had some kick-butt seamstress skills that she was more than happy to share with me, even after my little kid self tattered her decades' worth of clothes! Since then I have worked in an autobody shop doing restoration upholstery work, and have taken many, many courses on dressmaking, sewing, and basically anything that turns fabric into something wearable. Now years of sewing, creating and restoring later I get to bring back that romping around in the greatest full skirt dress mom's closet had to offer, but in a grown up way!
