😊💙🙏HOW MY WAIT LIST WORKS:
It’s really very simple....for over 2 years now I’ve been offering custom order dresses and skirts. It’s first come first serve. So when I state 8 weeks wait on my sewing schedule it has meant exactly that. About 15 people are ahead of you waiting for their item. I sew about 8 hours a day, everyday. It takes about three days to make a dress. I schedule your item to be sewn 3 days prior to the ship date. Some days I could sell three dresses and that makes it very difficult to stay on schedule. So I extending the wait time from 6 weeks to 8 weeks in November 2018. I work nonstop and don’t get a day off and with my fibromyalgia it’s really not fair to me. Please plan ahead if you need a dress for specific show, I can’t go any faster then I already work. Thank you for your understanding and patience...my wearable Art is a creation of love deadication and 20 years of perfected sewing skills. I create a piece to your measurements putting a great deal of time into every detail.
WHEN ITS YOUR TURN ON MY SCHEDULE: 3-5 days before your sew date I will message you with any measurement questions I have for you as well color choice and details about your order. So please respond to meassage promptly or there will be a delay in your sew date. I can’t create your piece without these. Upon purchase I will meassge you for these measurements and send you a guide on how to do it.

*********HOW MY SHOP WORKS************
I've Become a fabric connoisseur over the last 18 years, collecting 100s of prints and fabrics of the highest quality. This allows me to spontaneously add new items when the inspiration hits. I handpick each design I will be featuring in my products. I also hand-design specialty prints. This is why there is always such a wonderful variety of prints from which to choose.

Once the new fabric arrives, I sew my sample products and have a photo shoot outside my home. Then I edit all my photos and begin listing the new products in my shop. This is a continuous process and a lot of fun!

I make most items to order, which means that once you buy the item, I then begin the creation process. I have all my fabrics cut and organized in different stages for processing. Feel free to ask for custom items out of any fabrics you see in my shop. I'm always happy to make a special design just for you.

Designing one of a kind wearable art feeds my soul💙🌈🎶

I'm constantly evolving my Store.
Handcrafting unique wearable art in all forms comes from with in me. It’s is an unstoppable force that drives my creative passion. I imagine your smile when you open your package and feel the texture in your hands. I picture your eyes light up as the colors mix and the image on your screen is this tangible piece of art. There is something so exciting about new innovative designs, they seem to come from a magical place where inspiration and love meet.

I was born to be an Artist. From the moment I could hold a pencil my imagination has flowed into design. I have a BFA in textile design, talk about the perfect College major! It’s 1992 and this Jersey girl from outside NYC heads to south Jesery farmtown and finds the Grateful Dead. Mix this with my first courses of Study, Tie Dye And Batik And my soul awakened as I began to find myself. I started sewing fun hippie clothes in 1999 as a hobby. In 2005 I made it my full time job as a began my life as the only parent to my daughter my Fibromyalgia came on with full force at this time as well. Becoming a mom really focused my creative drive to be successful and happy. My customers keep coming back year after year because I have Always sewn from my heart. My cloththing is durable well made and comfortable. My eye for color mixed with my passion for collecting the most amazing fabrics from around the world both vintage and new makes my style stand out in the crowd. I want you to feel like a shinning star when you put on a Phatcatpatch Dress or scarf. As I sew your item I imagine how you plan to use it, is it for you or a Gift for special friend? Do you have a show coming up you plan to wear it to? I get really excited when I’m Customizing it to your uniqueness. Maybe at 4’11” dresses are always to long and you’ve never had something made just for you. In this modern world of mass production a handmade creation you can wear and feel special in is rare.

My shop has evolved through the years and I never know what will inspire me tomorrow. I’m so grateful that God gave me this gift and I work very hard to be the best at what I do.
🌹🎶Once in a while you get shown the light in the strangest of places if you look at it right.....🎶🌈💙🌹💀⚡️💃🏼💃🏼💃🏼😊

A little bit about my Fibromyalgia struggle - for several years I had to give up sewing. * I had a hair feather worlwind shop in 2011 after that I began making scarves as it was less painful to sew smaller items. Chevron scarves were flying out the door. My business grew overnight. I've always put my heart into everything I do. Customer satisfaction has always been the most important leader in my business as well as being honest. I have had over 17,000 sales because of this( it still blows my mind that I hand crafted everyone of these items ) My customers know I will make that extra effort to ensure they are Happy.
My greatest flaw is working to hard. When you run your own business there is no weekend. I have to constantly remind myself to take breaks, Fibromyalgia needs to be respected. It will tear you apart if you let it. I struggle everyday with my drive to create and this illness that dictates how may days will go. I still tend to push myself to hard but have my ice packs and heating pads ready to go at any moment.
2014* Recently I began Designing fabric online and found another side to my creative drive. I decided to live and work as happy as possible. By combining all my favorite things into my designs I feel my spirit rejuvenated. My heart belongs to the Grateful Dead but not being able to dance was really hard on my spirit. This was a spiritual experience for me where I connected with another plan of existence. Being able to incorporate this love into my designs had brought me back to myself.
I'm also a huge Sci-Fi fan loving Doctor who, Supernatural, Firefly, Buffy, The Superfriends from my childhood, Smallville, Torchwood, Star Trek, Bones and well you get the idea. My daughter is obsessed with My Little Ponies and they are intertwined with so many of my favorite shows it has too become part of my inspiration.
*AROUND 2015 I slowly started making Dresses and skirts again as I found swimming to really ease my pain. ITS BEEN AN AMAZING COUPLE YEARS! My Customers are so sweet and kind and my custom dress wait list has been consistently 3-5 weeks out on orders with more and more coming in. I sew everyday and don't ever take a day off. It's hard for me to take a break when I know your waiting on your custom dress. It can be overwhelming at times but I'm so grateful for the Love you feel towards my Art. I have perfected my dancing dresses over the 20 years of sewing. I don't use patterns, I paint with my beautiful fabric collection. I put my heart and soul into every piece of Wesrable Art I make. I have made over 2000 one of a kind dresses and have a 5 star review rating.
