The picture I'm posting really doesn't do the dress justice, wish it would allow me to post more than one! It fit exactly to the measurements requested, including my last minute request to V the neckline instead. I needed this is a hurry before my trip and she delivered it with time to spare. I wanted to give it a slightly darker look and asked for her opinion...she went out of her way to tea-dye scrap samples of her own and sent me photos with steps so that mine didn't have to be the guinea pig. What amazing service!! :)

About

Rad clothing for dudettes who want to stand out in a crowd. Embrace your inner circus freak.

SmarmyClothes is a one woman circus act featuring a kaleidoscope of colors, patterns, and subcultures. Every item is designed and made by me.

I'm pretty much self-taught - by training I'm a nurse. I learned to sew in a middle school "Life Skills" class and from my mom. After learning the basic skills of sewing, it was pretty much just lots of practice from there.

I've been selling my stuff since 2003, and SmarmyClothes.com was established in January of 2005. SmarmyClothes was pretty much a hobby until I finished my bachelor's degree (for Nursing) in December of 2005, when I decided that doing fashion design full time sounded like a grand idea.

I work pretty much 7 days a week and my jerk of a boss (hey wait, that's me!) doesn't give me dick for benefits, but I still wouldn't trade my job as a starving artist for anything. I get to stay up late, sleep in, and work in my PJs.

If you're not sick of me already, you can check out my blog: http://whatthecraft.com
I'm probably posting about food as we speak.

I also sing and play bass in a punk rock band - The Extreme Unicorns.

Thanks to all of you that buy my clothes. If you didn't support SmarmyClothes, I know exactly where I'd be... (two words: stool sample). You guys rock!

SEWING PATTERNS: Due to the nature of downloadable patterns and templates, all sales are final. Patterns may not be refunded or exchanged.

Please please PLEASE make sure to save a copy of your patterns and templates to an external hard drive or cloud drive. You could even just email the pattern to yourself as an attachment. That way, in the event of a computer virus, crash, etc, you will always have a safe copy of your patterns.

In the event that you lose the pattern and do not have a back-up, please contact me, and I should be able to send you a new copy. I will do this once- and only once. So let me reiterate the importance of backing up your pattern files!
Additional policies and FAQs
GARMENT CARE: I recommend hand washing and laying flat to dry, unless I've included a care card that says otherwise. This will ensure the longest, happiest life of your Smarment.

I use a lot of specialty fabrics and delicate trims (not to mention the hook and eyes and things that will snag), and they really needed to be treated gently. Even the "gentle" cycle on the machine is not recommended.

If you insist of machine washing (at your own risk!), I recommend putting the item inside a sweater bag or pillowcase first.

I can not stress enough how important it is to measure either yourself or a clothing item that fits you well before ordering.

For more information on how to measure yourself, please see: http://smarmyclothes.com/sizing/
