About

I am a milliner, theatrical wardrobe worker, and vintage fashion afficianado who appreciates up cycling and redistributing great things!

I was the little girl who kept all things shiney, tiny, and decorative- even damaged bits could not be thrown away. Fondest memories are of choosing a special button from my Grandma's sewing basket, and learning to knit, sew and bead, on my own and with help from others. With much encouragement from family, I created dolll wardrobes, decorated hair clips and made toys, bags and jewelry for friends and family. Home Ec in high school developed stitching skills, and after graduating with a BSc Human Ecology in Clothing and Textiles I began work as Head of Wardrobe at a small theatre. My years at Le Cercle Moliere were an amazing opportunity for learning and discovering as I was fortunate to work all areas of wardrobe: buying, cutting, stitching, dyeing, breakdown, shoes, accessories, and show running. My interest in vintage fashion and appreciation for recycling and up cling developed as I freelanced in theatre and dance, and participation in a Master Class Theatre Arts Millinery course at the Banff Centre was key to my career development.
During my years of work as a costumer and milliner, I have retained my interest in vintage fashion, jewels and all things related. As I travel extensively for work, mostly with the Royal Winnipeg Ballet, I can't help but continue to attain interesting materials, patterns, and true vintage treasures that I know others will appreciate as well. I am committed to share these treasures through my etsy shop, not only as supplies and materials, but with a few of my own creations as well. I carefully select everything I list, whether it be materials, patterns, vintage accessories, clothing, or a creation of my own.

I strive to make use of materials and pieces from all eras, so many pieces have age or patina inherent in them, which adds to their charm and beauty. All of my creations are made from quality vintage (not simply "pre-loved" or second-hand), antique, natural, and hand-crafted components from around the world. Findings, foundation material, and notions are new in order to ensure wearability. Vintage and collectable, pre-owned accessories, patterns, and clothing are sold as-is, and as they have stood the test of time they will endure for as long as their current state allows- so please be mindful of their limited wear capacity and cherish them!
