Clothing My World in the Unique

After a few years of sewing for my family, 12 years ago I found myself excited and re-energized by a new generation of women who appreciate and crave unique expression in fashion -- the DIY movement -- which I then joined in 2004.

My mother called me Miss Priss when I was a child, when she made me learn all the stitches by hand. Only then was I allowed to use the machine. In her honor I named my ebay account Miss...Priss. So everything I make is well-crafted, with solid seams and serging, incorporating hand stitching throughout. She would be proud.

One-of-a-kind, OOAK, is what interests me, not production work. The joy is in finding interesting fabrics or materials, imagining a swan from that ugly duckling vintage garment, seeing it evolve in my hands, and then making someone beautiful who wears it.

From my SilliKilts (TM) to my Curly Flap Fezzes, my Slip Dresses to my Gauntlets, my Kozy Kitty furry hats to my unique skirts, my Zombie Fashionistas to my Trailer Trashion, I want my buyers to feel unique and interesting when they wear my creations.

    This crazy scissors-wielding chick has been sewing since she was six. I made my clothes through school, the world of the mod 60s, the psychedelic 70s, the ska-punk 80s. For 30 years in my world of science, I was the nerd wearing artsy fashions.

You, the buyer is important to me, and I strive my best to give you what you want. Clothing the world with clothes with Quirky Attitude is as close to World Domination that I want to get!

=======================================
ABOUT SIZING: I think it’s easier to visualize how something might fit if you compare your own measurements to those of my model or dress form. I don't pin anything, so you can see how it really hangs.
ABOUT YOUR FIT: Determine the measurements of something similar to this, for which you like the fit. They should be similar. Or compare your own body measurements to the model’s. Look at how this garment fits (or doesn’t)
ABOUT CONDITION: Assume excellent vintage that I've reconstructed, unless I say otherwise. Everything has been sewn & then checked carefully. Loose seams or hems have been resewn, the washables have all been laundered. And of course smoke-free!!!
========================================

Payment
Paypal, credit card, or money order are fine for U.S. purchase, but Paypal or credit card is the only payment I accept for international orders.

If you want to pay by credit card, but don't have a paypal account (and don't want one), the instructions are here as to how to do that.

Etsy's instructions cover all the questions you could ever imagine!
Shipping
I ship First Class with the postal service if possible. My shipping prices do not include insurance, since I've found for the small, single orders, that just drives up the price to you. I've not lost anything yet! So I self-insure, to your benefit. On my larger orders I do insure -- but, again, you benefit because I don't include that in the total price!

I love to ship internationally, by First Class Airmail, but insurance is not possible with that reasonable shipping option. So we cross our fingers and hope! If you are concerned, I can add Registered mail, which costs $11.00

But, again, I've never lost anything internationally, but I've found that, rarely, it may take up to 4 weeks.
Refunds and Exchanges
I want you to be happy with our transaction. If you are unhappy with your purchase, let me know, and I will offer a shop credit, minus shipping, of course. If later, you find the quality of construction to be lacking, or fail, let me know that, too, and I'll try to fix it for you. I want to offer the best quality possible, and your feedback helps.
Additional policies and FAQs
Custom orders are always welcome...just look at my "sold" items to get an idea! I guarantee my construction -- if some stitching ever fails, send it back to me and I will render it perfect again!
