Hello! Welcome to Sewing Slammerkin. A slammerkin is a loose fitting dress with open sides, often worn by prostitutes in the 17th century. This was similar to the "gates of hell" dresses of the middle ages. I decided to call my shop this, not just for the alliteration of S's but because a slammerkin was also what the ladies who wore these loose fitting dresses were called. They were part of the sub-society that didn't fit into daytime upper class. I would consider myself a slammerkin because I don't fit in to the every day, and everything I make is a unique expression of myself. Welcome to my world - my shop - enjoy your stay and I hope you find some things you like!
