About My Shop
"Maybe someday I'll launch a website to sell all the things I make." - Adriene Booth
Well, MAYBE IS NOW!
We all have so much stuff. There is so much textile waste in clothing production. Fast fashion abounds. Instead of consuming more let's all try to be a bit more conscious of what we buy. It's time to repurpose, recycle, and reimagine. I like to take old things and make them new again by embellishing and embroidering, using scraps of fabric and ribbon to create a new, reimagined item of clothing or jewelry. I can custom make a piece for you, or get one of my hand embroidered patches to personalize and give new life to something you haven't worn for a while!
I do all sorts of things, send me a message and we can do something new together!
I find inspiration for the things I make in all sorts of ways. Generally, I see something in my everyday travels that makes me look at objects in a different way. I think about the things I like and figure out ways to create items that translate my curiosity and sense of fun into a wearable form.
I have worked in fashion and design most of my adult life. I have been making things since I was a child. As I've moved through life I have found the two interests converging more and more. After owning a children's clothing store, LMNOP, in Chicago for 13 years, I have decided to take my aesthetic to the larger world. Bigger people and more places.
