What I Do

Upcycled Fashion & New Garments

These comfortable one-of-a-kind garments and accessories will make you feel as special as you truly are! Made from good quality upcycled garments, they are  “altered couture” and specially made with great attention to “detail”.  Dress them “up” or “down”, however you wear them and wherever you go,  they will make you feel gorgeous and happy!  


All garments will fit a variety of sizes and shapes!  I recommend measuring one of your favorite fitting garments and compare to the measurements listed.  Please do not hesitate to contact if you have further questions!

Measurements used: Circumference around garment 1-2” down from underarm seam; Front measurement from shoulder to bottom of garment; Back measurement from shoulder seam to center back of garment.
