Announcement   Everything you see here is handmade one-of-a-kind by yours truly.
With the intention of making clothes that you can dance, spin, leap, fly, and play in, I also make sure to have a light footprint too.
Each piece uses new fabric otherwise destined for the dumps (maybe the store has too much inventory, it's a last season fabric, or not enough left on the roll). That's when I swoop in, rescue it, and turn it into the treasures you see here.**

Let me know if you like something but are interested in a different color or size and I'll see what I can put together. Become a fan on facebook and get updated when I have new items up for sale. Plus! fans get occasional discounts and specials not offered here!

About

Hipstarr Designs is an inspired by the desire to bring beauty in the world, leave a light footprint, and make comfy fun clothes for dancing adventures

I started out this journey over 19 years ago when I decided that I wanted to start sewing and that my first project would be a pair of hand sewn pants. Three months later I had a pair of black corduroy capris with pockets, belt loops, and a zipper. My mother saw my dedication and bought me my Kenmore sewing machine, which I still use to this day. Since then my style has evolved from selling patchwork dresses outside of festivals to burningman costumes (including dinosaurs and unicorns!) to super cozy yoga/dance clothes with a bit of personal flare. One of my favorite costuming moments was when I went to Joshua tree to rock climb and ended up staying through halloween weekend. I dressed up eight different people in full costume out of the bits of creation I had tucked away in my trunk!

One of the things I love about this work is that it matches my values. Almost all of the fabric that I use is rescued material, meaning a person or a store decided that for some reason (overstock, remnant material, or just making room for new arrivals), they don't want to sell it anymore. I swoop in before it gets to the landfill and make the beauties that you see here.

I find my bits of fabric on the road as i go, and see the potential whispering out of each one. Each piece is one of a kind lovingly stitched by yours truly. Come take a peek, let yourself be surrounded by the aliveness of something brought into the world by vision and curiosity, by color and inspiration.

Welcome to Hipstarr Designs!!

All of the clothes that i make are sewn with my kenmore sewing machine, which has been my trustworthy companion for thirteen years, and my viking serger, which has traveled with me for five years now. Everything I make is fully serged and sewn with these two machines. All pockets are double stitched for extra durability and I guarantee that everything is sewn with the intent to last. Although I do size everything appropriately, i do not use any kind of store bought pattern, insuring a unique creation each time.

I love making clothes that are absolutely unique, that have time and effort and love put into them, that are not only useful, but beautiful, not only beautiful, but comfortable, and not only comfortable, but unique, and fun! Plus, it seems that the energy in a room shifts when fun party clothes are put into action and i want more of that fun vibe out there in the world!!

Each piece is one of a kind and handmade...

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
  • Other Method
Payment
I accept paypal, check or money order. I am happy to reserve something for you if you cannot pay right away. I ask that you leave a deposit to secure your purchase. I will change the listing to read "Reserved for...", and change the price to reflect the deposit that you've made. If you change your mind, the deposit is not refundable. Please do not purchase anything that you don't intend to pay for.

Please pay (or let me know when I can expect to receive the payment by mail) within three days of ordering the item. If I do not receive payment within three days, I will relist it.
Shipping
I ship at least once a week. So, at most, it should be 5 business days before your item is shipped.
I use the US postal system, priority mail. Sometimes I ship parcel post, but only when the delivery person tells me it will take the same amount of time.
All of my items are either shipped in USPS priority packaging, or I try to reuse boxes when I can.

I now ship everything domestically with delivery confirmation.

If you need something gift wrapped, or any other personal touch, just let me know!

*International customers*
The US postal service does not offer international tracking at any sort of reasonable price, so it is *ship at your own risk*....I have shipped many many international packages without incident, but if it gets lost in customs or has other complications, I cannot refund you. I am sorry!
Refunds and Exchanges
All sales are final, so please check your measurements, and feel free to ask lots of questions before purchasing the items. I make everything one-of-kind, handmade, so each piece will fit differently. If you would like your item to be custom fit to your dimensions just ask me and I'll see what's possible. I want you to be happy!
Additional policies and FAQs
All items are made from salvaged materials, or manufacturing deadstock. No need for extra consumerism, I love to turn odds and ends into fabulous treasures...

Most items are fine for throwing in with the regular wash. If you are unsure, please wash on cold or hand wash! For example... fur, things with fringe...
