Bite-sized wonder diva.
Owner of Frocketeer Design and Erstwhile Studios.
Crazy mad knowledge of many traditional, domestic, and post-apocalyptic survival skills: sewing, pattern-making, design, costuming, crochet, embroidery, cooking, baking, and teaching all the things.
I have an extensive working knowledge of vintage and mid century styling, including how to dress like a demented housewife. I can also evaluate your vintage treasures for resale, and I can even sell them for you on consignment. Inherit something interesting and old? Call me... [making "phone" hand sign and winking]
30+ years of professional sewing and tailoring experience, including cosplay, theatre, and custom wedding gowns.
I've made corsets for stage drag, costumes for parades, custom quilts for birthdays and babies, and pretty much anything else you can conceive.
For the entire history of the clothes-wearing world, humankind has tailored, mended, repaired, reused, and recycled true clothing-- until this century. Now, if we buy something that doesn't fit, or we change sizes and our current clothes no longer suit, we throw them out and buy more.
Become engaged in the moment, in appreciation of quality, the feel of a well cut garment. Quality over quantity. Choose clothing that speaks to you. A quality item that's properly fitted will last longer, wear better, and make you feel more confident in your appearance. No more sagging hems and gaping buttons. No more disposable clothing. Love your wardrobe, minimize the closet clutter.
