In honor of the generations of creative women who came before me~
It started with vintage fabric, trims and sewing supplies handed down and gifted to me from both my own and my partner’s mothers, grandmothers and even great-grandmothers.
Some of these materials had been waiting to be made into something since before I was born.
I was inspired to combine them with things I had in my studio, and see what I could bring to life.
It was a lot of fun playing and experimenting, and I learned a lot in the process.
Both sewing and patience are hard.
The women who came before me probably would not have considered themselves artists, or even creatives, but they most certainly were.
Their talent, skills and hard work turned fabric into clothing for people they loved. Since this was common and taught in the times they lived, they might not have even realized it was a gift.
Now, these are lost arts~
And I mentioned that sewing is harder than it looks, right?
Cheers to the gifted craftswomen of the past who knew how to make it work with what they had on hand~ and they managed to dress fabulously while doing it!
PS. My models ROCKED IT!
