Welcome to Magpie Dreams. I've been "making stuff" since I was 4 or 5 and haven't stopped since. Art, clothing, jewelry, furniture and other random things...I can't seem to stop myself. What's a girl to do? I had to start selling on!

Each of my original pieces is created from a mixture of vintage and new fabric, hand-sewn embellishments and embroidered accents. Everything is made by little old me. I mainly use top-quality fabrics, most of which are vintage silk, cotton, brocade and wool. The occasional polyester piece will creep in (hey - it's wash and wear!) While I do use a sewing machine, I prefer to do all embellishments by hand. I always leave a little rough around the edges. Otherwise, things could get too sugary-sweet.

If you see something you like, buy it now, because these are one-of-a-kind. Please come back often. I am always creating new things!
SIZING: Please know that because many of my creations are made from vintage clothing and fabrics, sizing is approximate. If you buy something and it just doesn’t fit, you may return it for exchange or refund (see Refunds and Exhcanges).

Additional policies and FAQs
About those custom orders. Not to sound like a cranky middle-aged lady (which I am) but I already have a full-time job at an advertising agency. Kissing clients' butts is an 8 hour a day chore.

Basically, I'm not looking to kiss additional behinds...know what I mean? Creating is my joy. It gives me purpose. In other words, if you are a very particular, demanding, fussy sort of person - I am NOT the gal for you. On the flip side, I do want people to be happy with my work, so I will be very accomodating on styles, colors, embellisments, etc.

So, still want a custom piece from me? Give me a shout!

Please enjoy these clothes I make!
