Creating garments with a sewing machine, textiles design through fabric dye and fabric manipulation with felting.
I began clothing construction and fabric dying as a way to keep busy and let out creative energy. I was living in the Sierra Mountains, Lake Tahoe, where the winters can be long and cold. I've always sewn home interiors, quilted and such but the clothing side of things was all new to me. I dove in and started collecting upholstery fabrics, vintage curtain panels and interesting textiles wherever I ventured. From the various tapestries, brocades and fabrics with interesting colors and textures emerged vests, jackets and coats. I would cut up patterns and change things around to get the design elements I wanted. After a winter of endless sewing, with no formal fashion industry training and sewing on my old Sears Kenmore machine, I created quite a stock of diverse pieces. My style and interests sway and change with different ideas constantly flowing around in my brain. I do believe though that my strongest skills are in color cohesion and tailoring. I love to tinker with fabric dyes, silks and felting. I also feel that using re-purposed fabrics and garments is a positive direction that everyone should be moving towards. Vintage and reclaimed garments and cloth really can add character and charm to an entirely fresh new piece while not creating more waste along the way.
