Here is a small example of my work on a real person....


Before I start...I would just like to say....I love creating new fashion by up-cycling old clothes....It is one of my favorite things to do......
Prairie Child


All my pieces are one of a kind. No two will ever be alike.... as I am constantly looking for different blouses, doilies, buttons, lace and ribbons.

I use an a 1919 Singer treadle sewing machine.
I sew barefooted with an old radio playing in the background and a little antique fan blowing gently over my shoulder...

WELCOME TO MY LITTLE PART OF THE WORLD...

I enjoy taking a dress, blouse, shirt or skirt and just... Rip It Apart!!!
I then add old crochet doilies and buttons, lace and rhinestones, pieces of tattered ribbon, bits of other blouses, most anything that I think will bring the piece together..
.Each piece has its own simple beauty. Now, after all that... I tea dye everything to make each piece truly unique....
Tea makes some pieces darker then others...There may be an imperfection in the fabric such as a little hole or tare...if I don't like it it ...I will cover it with a piece of lace or tattered fabric...which just enhances the overall piece...

I WILL ON OCCASION ADD PIECES WITH COLOR..


My BOHEMIAN PRAIRIE line is create the same way as the tea dyed line...only Many colors are used to create this colorful line. So do keep an eye out...to see just what I created next...

I DO NOT USE A PATTERN...... all sizes are approximate.

If the size was attached to the garment originally then that is the size listed.

I will put the inches from seam to seam at the widest part of the piece, such as under the arm across the breast area...so that you can take a measurement of yourself or your favorite blouse and measure it...to get a better idea of what I am offering....I will also give measurements from shoulder to hem...if it longer in an area... that will be the longest measurement and vise-versa...


**FOR SHIPMENTS OUTSIDE THE USA: Delivery times vary hugely due to customs! Parcels typically take 3 weeks to most locations, but during the holidays it often takes longer. I CANNOT GUARANTEE THAT PACKAGES SENT OUTSIDE THE USA WILL BE DELIVERED IN TIME FOR CHRISTMAS

VERY IMPORTANT FOR SHIPMENTS OUTSIDE THE USA: Please be aware that your government may impose import fees, taxes, or fees at the time of delivery. These are the sole responsibility of the buyer. I don't know how much they may be or if they will be imposed. For information you should contact your postal service. I put the price paid on the customs form and include an invoice in the package.
Tracking is available to select countries. I ship USPS first class and insure if possible....some countries I cannot purchase insurance on international packages.

On rare occasions, there are delays/held ups at custom; bad weather conditions, festive seasons, strikes. So the package may take longer.

Please understand such delays are not within my control. Once the package departs from my end, the shipping duration is subjected to postal services' timeline and there is really nothing I can do.
I am very sorry about that. But I seek your kind understanding in this matter.
I understand that it is frustrating and honestly, it upsets me and I do not want this to happen too.
I am unable to cancel the transaction or refund you because of delays like these.

About

A 'reclaimer' of all things vintage.

I reclaim and refashion old clothes to create new style.
I use an old 1919 singer sewing machine with only one stitch and no reverse!!! I love it!

My brick and mortor shop is now three years old.
I try to sew on something most days. The Boudoir Closet' leads into my very small sewing room.

Everything is meant to be feminine and somewhat go with my style of clothing.

'In The Hall' is the space that is most mobile, sometime show space..sometime sells area.

My front room is The Bohemian Room...has everything which includes a bit of vendor consignment....my jewelry, hats, totes..and....refashioned clothes!

"Tucked away in a historic part of town in the heart of Limestone County in North Alabama, Donna Brown aka Prairie Child stitches and pins and snips away at vintage and upcycled fabrics creating one of a kind clothing items. She's been featured in Catfish Alley, Surreal and Altered Couture Magazine's and has seen her custom work sent to customers all over the world. She's a phenomenal artist and creative, with a passion for the natural world and preserving much of it. Her work and her shop are often described as Athens, Alabama's "best kept secret!" but it is a secret worth sharing. When you shop Prairie Child Design, you're shopping for unique, one of a kind items that speak of only you and your individuality. Each piece is carefully and passionately born into existence and displays Prairie Child's incredible skill with her antique Singer sewing machine that she learned to sew on and still sews on to this day. Donna Brown is an original in a world of mass produced madness, and each piece reflects that spirit and life." ~by Tamara Graves
