On Etsy since 2012

Creator of OOAK painted art clothing and jewelry.

Today's world requires us to reinvent ourselves, sometimes more than once or twice. This world moves so fast now, which is good and bad (maybe).
I have done this a few times in my life, and the Cape Cod Apparel & Adornment adventure is me going to the next phase. I have been a fine artist for just a few years, settling on abstract painting, never dreaming I would wind up painting clothing and painted jewelry! However that is precisely where I’ve landed, and I love it. Call it kismet-, my “ah ha” moment came after a chance encounter with a random person, who was wearing a coat she painted for herself. That was it for her- just the one. Boy did my wheels start turning........

Each piece of jewelry is an original mini abstract design, using cloth, art board, beach stones , beach glass, and shells from local beaches here on Cape Cod, collected by yours truly.
You can always message me here, or on Instagram @hollisfortuneart.
If you’ve stayed this long -thank you!

Welcome to Cape Cod Artful Apparel & Adornment! I turn existing plain clothing into fabulous art clothing - there are no multiples, so you will have a truly OOAK garment! I use fabric paints and various "tools" to create my designs.
Each garment is washed to remove any sizing(which would interfere with paint adherence), pressed, and then the fun begins! I study the garment to get a feel for what would bring it to life.
After the design is painted on, the garment "rests" for 2-3 days.
It is now ready to heat set the design with an iron. After this is done it rests again before the finale laundering, which is done to be sure the design has adhered properly.
I then do the final pressing.
Each piece of clothing is a challenge and I enjoy doing it immensely.
I work out of a studio in my towns cultural center, where I also create OOAK artboard, canvas, & shell jewelry, including earrings,pins,& necklaces

Frequently asked questions
Custom and personalized orders

For art clothing, the process may take longer to do depending upon what the request is.

Sizing details

I try to cover this in description, but welcome any questions you may have. We all know that the clothing industry have "fiddled" with the sizes, unhappily for most as it makes for frustrating buying.
I will give measurements in descriptions with clothing.

Care instructions

Art clothing is painted with fabric paint. Most garments can be laundered as per the instructions. I have laundered each piece twice, pre, to remove sizing, & post to assure the adherence of the paint. All designs are heat set before second laundering.
If pressing is required I advise to iron on reverse side, or place a cotton handkerchief over the design, iron over that. I will include instructions if wanted.

Wholesale availability

Jewelry may be wholesaled upon request. I am not wholesaling clothing at this time.
