Pleased

11th August 2009 | 0 Comments

My new Victorian-esque/Steampunk jacket came out so well: I made one before out of a brown ombre satin, it came out fairly well except it needed interfacing (which I had none) and the join at the tail came out wonky. But this one came out exactly how I pictured it. This particular one is for […]


Embroidered Waistcincher Corset Skirt

30th July 2009 | 0 Comments

Just finished this today. It’s a reversible cincher skirt. One side is olive green cotton sateen embroidered with a pink fairy and the other is black twill embroidered with interlocking triple crescent designs in copper, pink and silver. Antique gold grommets and pink top stitching finish off both sides. I love the way it turned […]


WaistCincher Skirt Complete

29th July 2009 | 0 Comments

I finished the Cincher Skirt today and it is awesome. In one of the pictures I paired it with 1900’s Walking Skirt and a white shirt I bought at Express years ago and it looks amazing. I knew it would look good together but I was amazed on how good they looked together. I’m working […]

I just made a large purchase of vintage clothing patterns from the 1960’s and 1970’s. I will be making them and selling the clothing on my Etsy Shop. Keep a look out. I am incredibly excited by the projects.


Celtic Trinity Knot Embroidered Twill Messenger Purse

9th July 2009 | 0 Comments

Inspired by the Dragon Embroidered Faux Leather Messenger bag (also for sale) but for those days when you want a spacious purse but don’t need to be carrying much more than your wallet, cell phone, maybe your current book and shopping lists. It’s small but generous dimensions will allow you to carry anything you need […]


Faux Leather Dragon Embroidered Messenger – Laptop Bag

7th July 2009 | 1 Comment

I am very proud of this bag. The embroidery (courtesy of Urban Threads) is a dragon sitting on the flap of the bag which is also dissected by a piece of faux leather trim. My scrap bin holds wonders. I found this brown/black leathery looking pleather while rummaging through my stash. It screamed to be […]


Prices: why they are what they are

30th June 2009 | 0 Comments

I was just browsing on Etsy and found that I tend to be priced in the middle to high range. I am there because of materials cost. I have very few fabric stores around me (the closest is 30 minutes away, the next closest one is at least one hour) and I have difficulty buying […]

Just Finished this top to go with my Quintessential Fantasy Movie Skirt. It’s 100% cotton with elasticized neckline and upper arm. The full belled sleeves look amazing in the breeze. Finished with French seams and rolled hems. It’s fantastic. Available in my etsy shop. Elastic can be replaced with ribbon Etsy Listing


The Quintessential Fantasy Movie Skirt

10th June 2009 | 0 Comments

So dubbed because, well, it is. In almost all fantasy movies (and a ton of books and book covers), you see this skirt. Laced at the top and two panels with a slit up the leg. This one is microsuede and charmeuse satin. Lovely and sexy. Quintessential Fantasy Movie Skirt oh so sexy.


Turn of the Century Inspire Skirt

31st May 2009 | 0 Comments

This skirt is from an altered turn of the century walking skirt. I love it. It is definitely one of my favorite skirts to wear in the summer. Made of sateen stretch poplin and is flatteringly knee-length and the gathering in the back gives a lovely s-curve silhouette and also hides any extra “junk in […]
