Sewing, Design, and Repurposing
What is this??? Well, maybe the question should be what isn't it! In the age of reduce, reuse, and recycle, I like the challenge of taking a garment and altering it into a new garment, up cycling it. To put it another way, if you can dream it, I will sure do my best to make it happen! Here are some ideas to think about:
How it Works:
The first step is to find those articles of clothing or material that have been taking up space in your home. The next step is to begin to think about what you may want to use this for…don't worry, if you can't come up with anything, you and I can brainstorm together. I have space that I can meet with you in Gresham or I can also come to your home for the first sewing reconstruction consultation. Then we decide together what you're looking for. I may do some sketches while I'm there with you, or I may email my sketches to you after some more creative thinking and problem-solving.
The next step is to pick up notions (thread, etc.) and then I begin the design or re-design process! I am happy to take pictures during the process and send them to you, or if this is being made to fit you, we will have fittings.
I find that some of my best creations have morphed into something different than I had originally had in mind or sketched. Sometimes this has to do with the material, or just moments of inspiration to go another way. When/if this happens, I will contact you if you like, to keep you updated!
Pricing is decided by the number of hours I spend on your design and creative alterations, as well as any extra fabric or notion costs.
