Custom made dresses
How did I get started?
I started designing dresses in 1999. I started making my own dresses by draping. Following that I learned flat pattern design and really put it to work with ready to wear dresses that featured pin-up attitude and a vintage gypsy vibe. I took a couple of years off from dressmaking and just worked on myself and family. One day my sister came to me with a dress and said can you make me something like this in black? So I made her the dress and she got so many complements and people wanting one, so I decided to get back into it. Not wanting to mass produce I decided to offer custom made dresses. I designed my first line for my Etsy shop in 2008, BlackLicoriceBtqe, now Pin-tage.
What inspires me?
I love outdoor elements and whenever I am designing I envision the dress being worn in one of my sacred places. I am inspired by so many things from the beach to old Hollywood movies. I am inspired by a challenge, being unique and radiating beauty.
