The window lady clothing has a dramatic, psychedelic, organic and theatrical feel. Many era's of costume history combining is a great inspiration as well as the found mostly antique materials. All items are strictly recycled (except thread). I began doing the "craft circuit" at a very young age with my parents in a 1948 bus. At four years old dad taught me how to sew on a machine! Addicted to recycling and making in general is good therapy. I love giving found unfinished quilts, and other found pieces of history a new life. Now days most pieces are made in the woods of plumas county, and sewing is helping me buy my house next to a magical creek. The natural setting continues to be great inspiration.

Also a long time vintage hoarder and you may want to check out the section "a ghosts closet vintage". The handmade pieces are sewn by my hands and designs are one of a kind designs.
For many years i did window dressing in the Bay Area. The window displays share the same resourceful, macabre and sometimes humorous elements as the clothing.

After a 5 year break from etsy the window lady is back to selling online!
You may have seen "the window lady" items in the past 12 years at first Fridays in Oakland, treasure island flea market, jack of all trades, alameda point antiques faire v22, edwardian ball sf, Berkeley spark, beyond the fence trunk show, prepare for the playa, bay area maker faire, and other events (sometimes on a traveling tricycle store or in a big blue bus or ice cream truck)!
Ive recently been diagnosed with Chronic regional pain syndrome. A disability that leaves me limited on bigger shows I've done for 12 years. The upside of that is the etsy shop is stocked. I've learned to sew with my left foot when I need to.

I support other designers that make their items themselves. We are a dying breed.
