It Seams Sustainable!

I've been sewing for a very long time, having learned in a junior high home ec class. During this time, I've made many, many dresses and costumes. Some of my favorites have been elaborate medieval gowns, a Victorian walking suit, and many award winning dance costumes and tutus for my daughter, one of which was a restyle of my mother's wedding gown.

This shop began as a means of selling some of my creations from upcycled thrift finds, but has since expanded to include a little bit of many of the other things I am interested in.

I love retro fashion and vintage finds, so when not sewing or crafting you can find me at flea markets, yard and estate sales, thrift shops and any other place one finds the interesting and re-usable!

Seams Sustainable started as a home-based, woman owned artwear business founded with the following goals in mind: 1) economical and ecological re-use of fabrics and softgoods; 2) sewing new garments from natural fiber fabrics; 3) re-purposing and upcycling used garments into new wearable art; and 4) promoting and teaching sewing as a sustainable living skill.

I strive to accomplish these goals while creating as little waste as possible, remaining true to environmentally and socially conscious values, using as many recycled or natural products as possible in my work and purchasing materials and goods from charitable re-sellers whenever possible.

    Hi! My interests include wearable art, sewing, jewelry making, antiques, retro fashion, thrifting, and yard sales - so you never quite know just what you'll find in my shop! Upcycling is a great way to keep stuff out of the landfill!
