Announcement   Altar Clothing is a line of handmade vintage and couture inspired women’s clothing and accessories. Each garment is made by hand with the utmost care and quality. A unique style, elegance, good fit and comfort are the key components to these designs.

This label was founded in 2010 by myself, Ryn Wilson (previously of Junkhouse Dollyard Designs), and is based in the magnificent city of New Orleans. I have been sewing and selling my designs since 2004 in Milwaukee, WI, where I was part of the collective clothing store, “Fasten”. From there I moved to Japan where I sold my wares at a vintage and designer store named “Rainbow” (circa 2006-2008). Since then I have been selling online and in brick and mortar stores around the world.

“Altar clothing assumes the belief in worshiping what you wear and transformation will ensue.”

I adore this piece, so glad I came across this. It is so cool and comfortable I could live in it. It can work as a dress on it's own, or a very long sweater. I love how drapey it is!

Thank you for taking the time to learn more about Altar Clothing!

These measurements are my standards when creating made to order items. I can adjust any measurements to fit your specific size:

Size XS - bust 28-30in; hip 30-32in (71-76cm; 76-81cm)
Size S - bust 32-34in; 22 hip 34-36in (81-86cm; 86-91cm)
Size M - bust 36-38in; hip 38-40in (91-96cm; 96-101cm)
Size L - bust 40-42in; hip 42-44in (101-107cm; 107-112cm)
Size XL- bust 44-46in; hips 46-48in (112-117cm; 117-122cm)

Please let me know if you have any special size or color requests, in most cases I can honor them.

All other items have sizing specified within the listing.

Please note with made to order items that the majority of materials used to create each design are reclaimed vintage items. Due to the nature and availability of these materials, each item will vary slightly in color, material and design. Altar Clothing will replicate the original item to the best of our ability, but each piece is one-of-a-kind and Altar Clothing will use artistic and stylistic license to incorporate variations into the final product. From experience, I can usually guess at the fiber content in my fabrics, but sometimes it isn't certain.

Because most materials used are vintage there may be tiny imperfections which Altar clothing deems tolerable.

If you have any questions or concerns please let me know!
