about me

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I’m Angela, I’m sewing my way to my dream wardrobe, one vintage pattern at a time, I document the process here, and share my completed vintage sewing projects over at we sew retro, which you MUST visit.

I am obsessed with couture fashion, fashion history and explore these ideas in some of the garments I produce.  I experiment with creating my own textiles, especially working with plastics.  In 2013 one of my wearable art garments, Hydra, won the Recycled Revolution at the Cult Couture Fashion Awards.

My husband and I are unschooling our two kids along the way, and I share our adventures and philosophy of learning here.  We are working hard to make our creative lifestyle a sustainable one.
