This parasol is perfect! It came exactly as I expected. Love the sheerness of the lace and everything is great quality.
Saving the planet, one fabulous garment at a time
I love vintage and thrift shops but I have a hard time finding things that I can wear. I'm shaped kinda funny & nothing seems to fit right. So I alter my clothes & everyone I know admires them. They want to know if I can do that for them, too. I got such requests so often that I decided to screw the man and start my own business. This was while I was attending college, taking pre-nursing courses. After the first year of this craziness I was unsure of my decision but I couldn't stop crafting. Now I'm glad I stuck with it. While taking an environmental health class I did some research about the impact of the fashion industry on the environment. It's horrendous! This confirmed to me that I should stick to reused and sustainable materials. I use what other people throw away and make very little waste. Everything is useful. I'm hoping to show the fashion-conscious that being green doesn't mean dressing in drab.

I compulsively create things, whether it's making sculpture out of dirty dishes in the sink or crocheting on the bus. I use my art to promote reuse and sustainability. It is possible to look fabulous and preserve the environment at the same time.
I believe in re-use, so many of my items are made from recycled clothing and vintage supplies. I find most of my materials at yard sales and thrift stores. This serves two purposes: it provides me with fabulous vintage supplies and it conserves the materials and energy resources required to make new supplies.
Please be assured that I have examined all of my supplies for defects, funky thrift-store smells and stains. Everything I use is in good condition.
If it is worth doing, it is worth doing well. I am a perfectionist. All of my items are made with care. I want to give you the best I have to offer. All the seams are professionally finished and the ends of crocheted items are securely woven in. Also, I try to give as complete information as I can about my items, including what it is made from and the proper care.
I hope you have a wonderfully satisfying Etsy experience. Thank you for visiting Whatever Works!
