Announcement   Summer is here in the Hudson Valley of New York! we're eating strawberries and salad from the garden, and jumping in the swimming hole whenever we can. i'm living in short-sleeved smocks and knee-length leggings, and always keep my sun bonnet on!

i'm a big proponent of making your clothes yourself, (check out my book on how to draft your own sewing patterns, and see if i'm teaching near you some time soon! http://hodgepodgefarm.net/?page_id=1522) but if you are not inclined, i'm here to make them for you. Warm-weather staples include the short-sleeved smock dress, crochet-yoked smock, and colorful printed leggings, which can be made in calf or knee-lengths.

*hodge podge* is an ever-evolving collection of one-off home-grown pieces including women's clothing and accessories. all pieces are hand made by me, and no two are ever alike. i believe in making from scratch, repurposing, and leaving the tiniest footprint possible... wouldn't you like to wear something hand made with love??? i welcome custom orders too; just send me a convo.

i can teach you how to make clothes! check out my book, Design-It-Yourself Clothes, and my online workshops in pattern drafting, sewing and crochet: http://hodgepodgefarm.net/?page_id=3532

or, if you want a handmade wardrobe but aren't up to making it yourself, i'm happy to do it for you. i am now offering *made to order* listings so you can order exactly the piece you want. you may wish to visit my *hodge podge handmade clothing* gallery to see more possibilities:

About

practical, modern handmade clothes for real people

i've been making my line of one-off pieces since 1998 when i opened my shop, Patch 155, on the Lower East Side of NYC. i figured i could commit to the label *hodge podge* because it would allow me to do almost anything, and i do like to dabble! i sew, crochet, draft patterns, embroider, spin yarn, knit, dye and print, and like to utilize as many of these processes as possible in one garment! i prefer to do things the old-fashioned way to create work that could never be mass-produced.

in my twenties i worked as a designer in the fashion industry, but was disenchanted with the reality of how garments are made so cheaply in factories overseas. i saw that the higher i progressed in that world, the less i would actually be making or designing. with that realization, i left and opened my own shop. it was there that i began teaching, first crochet and then sewing. after 4 years of shopkeeping i closed the store and opened one of the first indie craft schools in NYC. from there i began teaching at yarn & fabric shops and design studios around the city, and eventually wrote my first book, Design-It-Yourself Clothes.

after 18 years of big city living, i finally escaped to the mini-farm of my dreams in the gorgeous Catskill mountains of New York. my studio has windows on three sides so i can see my chickens running around as i work, in addition to deer, hummingbirds and other wildlife. i love making custom pieces for people that they will wear in their daily life. i hope i can make something for you!

    i have always been a Maker. as a kid i painted rocks and made woven ribbon barrettes, and sold (er, more like tried to sell) them door-to-door in my hand-painted wagon. now i make one-off artisanal handmade clothes that i hope will become heirlooms.

    I am thrilled to have found a production partner in Good Clothing Co., a sewing facility who believes in ethical working conditions and sustainable production in the US. With their help, I'm able to make more clothes + focus on tasks only I can do!
