REVAMP ~ Innovative Recycled Clothing

I began sewing at age 10. Whereas other children were frustrated with the process and often gave up, I became enthralled with sewing and saw a lot of possibilities. I started out making clothes for Barbie and moved on to sewing my own clothing.

My professional sewing includes the following experiences: alterations, bridal sewing, sample-making for fashion designers, designing and sewing motorcycle luggage, dressmaking, owning and operating a sewing workroom for home interior items, slipcovers, traditional and art quilting, pattern-making, fashion design and art to wear, fabric collage, and currently reconstructing garments out of cast-off clothing.

All aspects of sewing have been interesting and challenging. I love to design and figure out construction. I am finally to the point in my life where I am sewing and creating only what I want to make, rather than having to fill orders from other people. Having this freedom allows me to create in a way that fully expresses my training and creativity. I absolutely love what I am doing, and this joy is reflected in my work. I have a high standard of excellence and hold my customers in the highest esteem.

I have recently added my handcrafted greeting cards to my Etsy shop. They, too, are constructed using a variety of recycled paper items.

I am so grateful for your interest in my work. I should call it "play" because I never feel like I am working when I am sewing what I love. I make every effort to produce a top quality item, probably to the extreme side of obsession! If you have a concern about the performance of your garment, please convo me and we will get it sorted out.

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy Gift Cards and Etsy Credits
Returns and exchanges
You may return an item in original condition, no longer than one week after receipt. I will issue a full refund with the exception of the return shipping. Items that that have gone wrong because they were not cleaned/washed in the recommended way are not returnable.

Items that have been paid for on lay-away may be returned after authorization from REVAMP. A store credit will be issued rather than a refund.
I accept Pay Pal, Etsy Gift Cards and Credit Cards.


Items over $300 must be paid off in four months. The initial deposit to hold the garment must be $100 and is not refundable. The next two payments must be a minimum of $100 each. The final payment will cover the remaining balance due plus shipping. No amount of money applied toward a garment is refundable. If payment is not received in full within the four month time frame (120 days), the garment will be relisted and sold and no refund will be issued.

Items under $300 require a $100 non-refundable down payment and must be paid off in three months (90 days).

Items under $100 are not eligible for lay-away.
I ship within two days of receipt of payment, Monday through Friday. If you want to add insurance to your postage, please message me and we will work that out.
Additional policies and FAQs
If you are interested in custom work, send me a message. I don't take everything on but I will consider your request. If it feels like a good fit for me, I will be happy to produce a garment just for you.
