Hi. Thank you, first of all, for taking an interest in my shop!
Let me tell you a little about my process... Everything you see here is VERY handmade - meaning it is created here in my tiny apartment, by me, using mostly materials from secondhand garments and other sources. I rarely buy fabric new - I like to work with materials that have a history. This results in a more unique garment, and often a lower price for you. Everything that you see in my shop is totally one-of-a-kind. I either make items from scratch, or manipulate and build onto a preexisting garment. When I sew I think of it as building a collage - I work intuitively and just keep adding until it looks cool. Nothing is mass-produced. I never use patterns for my clothing, so you can be sure that what you buy is a true original, never to be replicated. Because I choose to work in this way, my clothing is not available in a standard range of sizes. I do, however, make a lot of my clothes purposefully non-tailored and loose-fitting so they may be worn comfortably by a greater number of people. If you like the styles you see here, but would like something made specifically for you, send me a request with your measurements and some ideas, and I will be happy to work with you to create something custom!! (And no big price jump!)

Accepted payment methods

  • Money Order
  • Check
Returns and exchanges
If the item you receive is damaged, or just not what you expected, please contact me within three days of receipt and I will accommodate you, either by repairing the item or issuing a refund. However, you will be responsible for the cost of shipping back to me.
Within the first 6 months: If an item is damaged due to faulty workmanship (not normal wear-and-tear), you may ship it back to me (at your cost) and I will promptly repair it and send it back to you (no cost to you).
PayPal - preferred, and I will ship immediately. :)
Money order - I will ship when I receive it.
Check - I will ship after it clears (usually 10 days).
I use recycled shipping materials whenever possible. I do not make a profit on shipping. If my estimate is over actual cost by as little as a dollar, I will refund you the difference. If my estimate is too low, I make up the difference and you will not be charged extra.

I ship standard USPS unless you request otherwise. If you would like insurance or need the package by a certain day, let me know and I will adjust the price accordingly. Please be aware that I cannot be held responsible for items delayed/lost in the mail. If this is a concern to you, just let me know when or before you purchase!

All items in my shop are ready to ship immediately, and will most likely go out same/next day I receive the order. I will send you a confirmation email when I receive your order to let you know when it will be shipped.

I am delighted to ship internationally! Just contact me for a shipping estimate.
Additional policies and FAQs
Some odds and ends:

Gift wrap: Items will arrive in a recycled box and colorful tissue. If you need an item gift wrapped, just contact me. I may be able to do fancy wrapping at no extra charge if I have supplies available, or a small charge if I need to go out and buy something.

Custom orders: I may do a custom order for you, depending on the materials required and time involved. I may be too busy to make a commitment to you - but don't be afraid to ask!

Everything in this shop was made in a smoke-free environment where two (clean) cats live!

Much of my clothing is purposefully shredded/torn/distressed/raw. Gentle wearing and washing will preserve the current appearance of such items. Additionally, the majority of my items have been hand-dyed by me, and may possibly continue to leach color during the first couple of washings. Therefore it is my suggestion that most of the items in my shop be hand washed or washed on delicate cycle, in cold water, with like colors.
