The true story of my pants..

Well, I guess I could tell you the story of how I learned to sew, or making Barbie clothes..but really what it comes down to is this. The shop started out because I would make myself 1950s dresses and wear them around our Airforce base in England, and around the villages, because that's just how I dress. People started noticing, and asking me where I got them. When I'd tell them i made them, they'd ask if I could make them one. After several people asking me that, I thought, hey, why not? I could charge people and make money! ( ok, that may seem obvious to you good people but I can be a bit slow sometimes, haha)

It started off slow, just making things for friends or people I ran into. Then I came across Etsy and I have now found my calling!

I keep working toward bigger and better things, and in the coming new year there are a lot of exciting things happening, from collaborations with brick and mortar shops to new designs.

Welcome to Uptown Atomic, where we specialize in 1950's reproduction fashion! All of our items are handmade, and when possible we strive to use the same techniques as would have been used in the era a garment is from.

All payments must be made through paypal; I can make lay away arrangements for items over $100 but please contact me to do so. All reserved listings must be paid within time agreed or three days, whichever is applicable. If it isn't paid I will cancel the listing.
I can no longer ship to any country other than the US, Canada, UK, Australia, and Germany, due to problems with other country's customs policies.

If you need an item to be ready at a specified time, please contact me BEFORE ordering- I have no way of knowing when I receive your order that you need it by a certain date, and I try to adhere to stated processing times posted in listings. These, however, are an estimate, and not a set in stone date. Remember, you are ordering an item that isn't pre-made but rather being made just for you. If you don't have the time it takes to get your order ready before it's needed, you may be disappointed.
Refunds and Exchanges
I do not offer refunds on any items, and I will exchange or offer store credit on pre- made items only. Buyer must pay return shipping.

CUSTOM ORDERS: We will no longer be accepting custom orders as of 4/3/13. The time it takes to draft new patterns is really eating into our other orders- sorry ladies!
