After trying on several dresses at local shops, I had trouble finding something non-traditional and whimsical for my garden elopement this Summer. When I came across Jada's shop, I knew she would be my match! Dresses were limited at the time, so I checked back everyday for awhile. This dress was worth the wait! It's surreal having the designs I've been admiring in my hands! I didn't want to take it off! I plan to wear it all day in the gardens and on the ferry across Lake Michigan, as we set out for our honeymoon :) Now, all I need is some fairy wings! :) THANK YOU JADA <3

This bust if everything I hoped for and more. Jada is an incredible artist. I'm so grateful she was able to make my dream dress come into being. This whole experience went perfectly. Jada kept in quick communication with me the entire time and my dress was made months before I had expected it. If I could give more than 5 stars I would!

I could not be happier with my purchase. The insects and little animals are adorable. It so wonderful that Jada came up with this beautiful concept and is sharing her talents with the rest of us. I am truly grateful!

I create.

This little shop of mine blossomed out of my love for taking things old, used, and unwanted and creating something new and beautiful. It is extremely important to me to be eco-friendly and when you purchase an item from me you are getting a quality handmade piece that has almost no impact on the Earth. The only things I use that are new are thread, dyes (except my naturally made dyes) and a tiny bit of electricity.

I spend many hours searching for just the right pieces to make a dress... or whatever garment I fancy making that moment. Many more hours are spent putting the pieces together in different eclectic styles, making sketches, and dyeing fabrics. Some pieces take shape as I sew them, and some are meticulously drawn out before I begin. I put a huge amount of energy, love, and care into each and every piece I create and pay close attention to detail.

My dresses are not meant to be common. They are for people that are not afraid to be a bit different and stand out. They are the alternative to the mainstream foreign factory made dresses. Each piece I make is an original.

I'm not taking on any more custom orders at this time. You can check back here or follow me on Facebook or my Pinterest board to be updated on all new dresses as I list them in my shop.

My items are made with great care. Quality and comfort are very important to me and I want every garment to fit it's owner perfectly. Please be sure to check each item's measurements carefully, leaving room on your body for moving and breathing. Contact me with questions about measurements, international sizes, or any other inquiries you may have.

As much as I adore all of the wonderful finds on Etsy, right now I am not interested in trades.
I send orders within 1-3 days of purchase via US mail. The price and time of arrival varying on the packaging and weight. If you would like to receive your order sooner than later, please contact me before ordering.

My shipping prices include tracking and insurance for most all US packages.

International packages ONLY of $100 or more include insurance and tracking. If you want insurance on your package of less than $100 and you are outside the US, please let me know before ordering.
The US no longer includes tracking and insurance with express mail to a few select countries. I am still trying to get the list of these countries, but do know that South Africa is one of them. But I can still ship anywhere around the world.

I cannot be held responsible for any UNinsured, lost or damaged packages, or anything that was stolen after delivery.
Refunds and Exchanges
ALL SALE ITEMS ARE NON-REFUNDABLE, otherwise I am open to most other returns. If you receive your item and it does not fit your body shape or the color looks horrible on you, talk to me about it... I am available. Just don't wear it first!! :) And please, contact me before buying if you are unsure of fit.

PLEASE pay close attention to measurements and sizes... it is sometimes hard to know how something will fit you, so if you need help or have questions let me know and we can figure it out together. I am not able to make alterations to an item purchased because I don't have each person here to get a perfect fit. For alterations it is best to seek someone locally.

If you would like to return an item, contact me first. The item must be unworn, free of stains and odors (no perfume please) and sent within 7 days of your receiving it. It will need to be sent with insurance for the cost of the item and tracking number will need to be emailed to me. Once I receive the item in the same condition it was sent, I will immediately refund you for the cost of that item.

**No shipping costs or deposits will be refunded. **
Additional policies and FAQs
At this time I am not able to fit custom dresses into my schedule. Please keep checking back for new dresses listed in my shop, or ask me about a custom bustier top. Follow me on Facebook or Pinterest to be updated on all new items...
