It's a little bit longer than expected; xs measures ~27 inches in total. However, it has a long, high waistband that can be folded down a few inches without looking weird. It is beautifully made and the color is exactly as described.

Skirt is nice, seemed a little too large at first but after a machine wash fits perfect. Note also there is no classic hem at the bottom, it is like the fabric had been cut nicely which make the skirt lighter.

Roller skates and a dress up barrel

I grew up on Northern Michigan’s Keweenaw Peninsula. From early on I had an overwhelming desire to create and compose the materials and space around me. Being home-schooled allowed me to engage with wonderful mentors that helped me discover the potential I had to create.

My childhood and ongoing obsession with clothing has had little to do with taste and trends, but instead a fascination of how they transform the way I look and feel. My earliest sources of inspiration were a well-stocked dress up barrel, an assortment of dolls, my sisters and my roller skates, (you have to be able to move in what you’re wearing!)

In my last year as an art and design student at Finlandia University I finally discovered the fiber studio. Although I enjoyed working with many materials and forms of art, it was designing with textiles that felt very natural and accessible.

I have always enjoyed making things that people use or wear, and as I began selling my pieces, I was able to share this pleasure with others. So with a vintage Viking sewing machine I had been given for my 13th birthday I started sewing skirts and tops, then scarves and bags. I did some local craft shows and a few music festivals. Soon, a couple of local shop owners offered to carry my work and a business was born.

Now 10 years and over 10,000 yards of material later I am equipped with industrial sewing machines and a diverse pallet of materials. I am now wonderfully engaged in designing and creating accessible, unique and beautiful items for the everyday.

Custom and personalized orders

When you order from my Etsy shop, I create each piece to your color and size specifications. I am more than happy to add or subtract an inch or two from a skirt, or make something sleeveless. If it is hard for you to find clothes for your height, arm length, torso proportions, bust size, or any other reason, just include your body measurements in the comments section at checkout! Minor customizations are free of charge; any change that takes significantly more time or materials will mean an added cost, so send me a message before ordering if you want to add a lining, ruffle, pockets, additional details, or more than 3" to a piece.
