I love this top! I chose a forest green with a lighter green panel. I call it my fairy or elf shirt because I feel like I just walked out of Middle Earth when I'm wearing it. The jaunty sleeves and color make me think of this.

I got this mostly because I wanted the kalaidoscope fabric. It's beautiful and comfortable!

About

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.

    I have always loved to create, especially with textiles. The way clothing can transform the way we look and feel is my reward. The endless possibilities of combining color, texture and design always keeps me engaged and inspired.

  • Art on the Rocks
    Ellwood Mattson Lower Harbor Park
    Lakeshore Blvd
    MARQUETTE, MI

    Jul 29–30

    Art on the Rocks™ has grown to one of the finest art shows in the country, attracting over 140 artists and 10,000 people each year. In 2017, we will be celebrating our 59th annual fine art and crafts festival in Mattson Lower Harbor Park, sandwiched between Marquette’s historic downtown and the Cinder Pond Marina on beautiful Lake Superior the weekend of July 29th and July 30th. To maintain the tradition of excellence, 30% of the show is made up of artists invited based on a scoring system used by our previous show judges and the other 70% selected in a jury process held in April. Reunion, vacations and other events are scheduled to insure that a visit to Art on the Rocks can be the focal point of a trip to the Upper Peninsula, specifically Marquette in late July. This celebration of art and talent has been an important component every summer for a half a century for those who live or visit in this area.

CUSTOM DETAILS
Include custom or additional measurements (such as shoulder to waist, sleeve, or skirt length) in the "note to YanaDee" at checkout. If you have questions about what measurements to include, feel free to send me a message.

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.
