I make stuff to wear. And touch. And hold.
Mostly shirts and a few accessories.
I sewed in Detroit. For me and a couple of dolls.
In London. (But not too much.)
In New York City. For Trash and Vaudeville. Men and Women. Suits and Punks.
I also make hats. I am a professional milliner.
In New York City. I worked with Woody Shelp. Hats for Broadway theatre, film, and dance.
I've designed and created hats for several runway shows.
Here in the Southwest I worked with the Arizona Opera Company.
I also sell millinery supplies for professional and aspiring milliners. Shop: www.hatshadows.com.
I missed sewing clothes. The process, the construction and the sensual feel of fabrics.
I missed the vintage sewing machines.
I'm back to making shirts. It makes me happy.
I hope my shirts make you happy too.
