About

Janie, LIam and I at the Oregon Zoo. Summer 2011

My passion for sewing began at the age of 12. In 1982, (the epic year that I bought my first leg warmers) the world was obsessed with big hair, acid wash jeans and bold sweaters while I was busy inventing ways to make my clothes have some real style… Fast-forward twenty something years; I am now armed with a BS in Apparel Design and Manufacturing & proud to say that I sew much straighter lines than I did in ’82! Inspiration for my retro/funky style comes from my daughter, Jane Pearl and son, Liam Vincent, and from the classic styling of the 40’s, 50’s and 60’s. I use old-school techniques and notions when I produce my products; they withstand wash after wash, and can be passed down from kid to kid!
