What type of work do you sell on Etsy?
I make one of a kind clothing and accessories from recycled vintage materials. I use anything from curtains, tablecloths, and tea towels; but my favorite textiles are children's bedsheets from the 1980s and before.
Describe your creative process.
I always start with the fabric and decide what style of dress will best feature the print. I also do custom orders in which case the customers dictates my choices. I love the entire process of sewing an item and enjoy making every dress. Each one is different and I find it exciting to give the fabric new life and a new purpose.
How has living in New Orleans inspired you?

Do you have any new projects or products on the horizon?
Always. I have recently begun sewing full time and have taken on orders for custom wedding dresses. I am currently working on dresses for 4 local ladies and am excited by these opportunities. I am also constantly making new patterns and have recently begun to make children's clothing as well.
Where can we find your products in the New Orleans area, besides online?
I sell my women's clothing and accessories at 2038 Magazine Street and I also sell my children's clothing at Zuka Baby, 2124 Magazine Street. I would like to expand to sell my items somewhere in the French Quarter and Uptown but as of yet have been too busy to do so.
