About

Couture from the Garage

Upcycled clothing and accessories for those who are NEVER dull. Yup, that's right. If you like colorful, interesting, unique, sassy, fun and flirty clothing that is totally one of a kind and totally NOT dull, then you've come to the right place.

I upcycle, repurpose, refashion, recycle (you get the point) shirts, sweaters, t-shirts, fabric, doilies, buttons, neckties, junk...whatever I can get my hands on, I will turn it into fashion. Upcycling helps reduce textile waste in our landfills. Did you know that we throw out 81 lbs of textile waste per person, per year! OMG! AND, that does not include items donated to charity. So, together we can reduce our carbon footprint without compromising our style. Thumbs up!

ABOUT ME:
I started sewing when I was 12, making clothes from brightly colored prints. Then, when I was 15, I started shopping at thrift stores. Having grown up in a small town, style was limited to what the local mall carried...fast fashion trends which all the girls wore. For me, it was boring. Thrift shops offered me an array of exciting styles, prints, colors...I was like a kid in a candy store.

Fast forward 10 years. By now, I had a career and during that time, I started to make and sell clothing from upcycled materials and reclaimed fabrics. I would buy a bunch of tshirts at the thrift store, tie dye them, cut them down the front or on the shirt seams and then tie those cuts into cute little bows. I'd make a bunch on the weekends and bring them to work in a vintage, floral print suitcase and sell them to my coworkers. They LOVED them. (I've sold this style in my etsy shop during the early days. Take a look at my early sales and you will see them...with hearts).

Why do I do it? I try to live an eco conscious lifestyle. And, simply put...I find upcycling and repurposing to be interesting and challenging. A women's tunic made from a man's dress shirt....come on, that's cool!

    I'm Erin. I think of myself as an artist first and then, a fashion designer. The sewing machine, scissors, thread, needle...are my paint brushes. Old clothing, fabric scraps...my canvas. The clothing I create is my art.
