About

When something's not working right, the best thing to do is tear it apart to make it better.

I have a love of unconventional clothing. I've always been inspired by the fashion that came out of the punk movement as well as modern avant garde designers.

My love of these things were randomly met by my preference for stretchy, soft knits and breathable clothing. I love anything that feels like jammies. I taught myself to sew by hand and was soon making my own clothing by deconstructing existing garments into something else. My hands had proven to be a bit of a jinx when it came to sewing machines so I sought help by taking a few fashion courses to learn how to properly operate a sewing machine. It was there that I also learned pattern drafting.

I took what I'd learned and incorporated the comfort of jersey knit to my designs. Soon I turned a hobby of creating clothing out of re-purposed materials into something much more. I continue to explore those ideas every day.

    I'm an actress. I model on occasion. I have a passion for the culinary arts. I love dogs and am a pit bull advocate. I think the cure for everything is a dose of 80's music and films much to the dismay of my friends and family.

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
Shipping
I ship all over the globe. Postage is quoted in each listing. I'll be happy to expedite orders however you must inquire prior to submitting an order. All items are shipped tracked however this does not mean the parcel is insured so if something goes awry such as loss or damage en route, there is little that the USPS will do to compensate. Insurance is generally around $1.75 which covers you for up to $50 & it increases .45 cents each additional $50. Whether or not purchase insurance is entirely at your discretion however if loss or damage does occur I'll work with you as best as I can however cannot reimburse you.
Refunds and Exchanges
If an item does not fit properly I will happily accept the unworn item back for either a full refund or exchange for an alternative size. If you're unhappy with the appearance of your item for any reason I will again happily refund you or extend a store credit. Due to hygiene reasons items must be returned unworn, unwashed, smoke free and pet hair/fur free. Items must be returned int he condition that they were received. Refunds and exchanges will be given once I receive the returned item and I must receive a tracking number within 5 days from the point the item was received. I cannot give refunds for items that were lost or damaged in the post.
Additional policies and FAQs
Everything in my shop is handmade and made to order. Sometimes I will stockpile certain items which will result in immediate shipment so get in touch to find out if the item you'd like is among them. Individual items generally take about a week and a half to construct and ship however orders in excess or 2 items or more will take a more time to complete. At the moment my turn around time for handmade orders of 2-3 items is about 2 to 2.5 weeks. 3 or more items within an order will take an average of 3 weeks to complete. Orders of 5 or more will generally take 6-8 weeks due to all being handmade. Rush orders are available for items required by a specific date however please inquire prior to purchase if this is the case.
