About My Deconstructed & Reworked Fashion Projects ...

I am a former shopaholic who created my new, eclectic wardrobe 
without buying any new pieces for a year. 

How? It started with facing a packed closet and still feeling like I had nothing to wear.

The Problem: The fit wasn't right or I liked a piece, but it was just missing that something special that could take it from a like to love.

My Solution: I got tired of being frustrated and decided to do something about it. I had no sewing skills, but figured that I had nothing to lose (I already spent the money.). I tried some minor alterations; hand sewing them. Then I taught myself the basics of using a sewing machine via YouTube videos and an eBook. My confidence, and willingness to experiment, grew with each project.

I’m a brainstorming rebel who taught myself the basics of sewing in order to transform my ideas into reality. I occasionally make mistakes, but sometimes those mistakes come out better than the original vision. The added bonus is that each piece has a story behind its creation (which speaks of my individual style while adding intrinsic value to each item).

My deconstructed and reworked projects quickly became a creative outlet ... where I can:
    1. Test my creative limits. Seeing the final results of my vision truly gives me joy.
    2. Add my personal stamp to each project ... Making sure that each piece reflects my eclectic, funky style.
    3. Ensure that each project fits well and is functional... pieces that I don’t need to adjust or worry about... creating items that I can wear with confidence.
    4. Turn each item into a one-off, unique creation that I love and wear often ... I like to call it upping the reach factor (It’s also called lowering the cost per wear... an industry term.).
