Commission information!

Current Schedule: Accepting one new commission a month


Past Work: Skirts, Dresses, Accessories, Couture

How to Commission:
Please contact me with a picture or sketch of what you are interested in having made. I will let you know my current availability and we can discuss fabrics and details. Every piece is unique so please show me what you were thinking of for an exact quote. The quote is usually a labor amount, materials are separate and depend on what the market price I am able to get for you (I provide receipts for material purchases).

Each custom order requires 1-2 fittings for anything more complex than a skirt, and may have more depending on any fit issues. I will create a mock up from the pattern I create for you in muslin and send it to you (in some cases I may just send the bodice of your dress as the skirt may not be fitted). You then take a few photos of you wearing it so that I can assess fit (front view, right side view, left side view, back view). I may have a few questions for you so I can get a better sense of what issues we may be having with fit, before adjusting your pattern. If there are quite a few major issues, I will send another muslin after adjustments before moving into actual fabric. I may request to send you your garment before finalizing it to assess final fit, as your actual fabric may hang differently from the muslin, and I want to see if there are any discrepancies.

Payment:
I require 1/2 the labor payment up front in order to begin your project. Once you have received your muslin, in order for me to move forward into fabric I will need the second 1/2 of the labor amount. Once your garment is completed, you will pay the balance for materials and shipping costs. I ship from San Francisco, and ship priority tracked in the US, first class internationally. If you would like to add insurance please let me know and I will get an exact shipping quote for you.

Spinach Caserole!

Ingredients:
2 Bunches fresh spinach rinsed and coarsely chopped
18 oz of quartered marinated artichoke hearts (usually one big bottle and one small one)
3 oz of cream cheese (by weight)
2 tbsp of butter (unsalted)
About 1/2 a cup of bread crumbs
onion salt and black pepper to taste
You will need one small casserole dish to bake this in!

Directions:
Pre-heat the oven to 350 (F)
1) Prep the artichoke hearts by taking them out of their juice and cutting them in half, then you line the bottom of the dish with them.

2) Prepare the spinach by boiling in a pot with about 2" of water. Just lightly blanch it, boiling it just enough to get it soft. Drain it completely in a colander and set aside.

3) In a sauce pan (or my mom suggests using the pot or pan you boiled the spinach in to save on cleanup), melt the butter and cream cheese together. Use the onion salt and pepper to taste. Remove from heat.

4) Take the spinach and add to your sauce mixing so all the spinach is well covered in the sauce.

5) Take the sauce and spinach mix and lay it over the artichoke hearts. Then make a crust on the top using the bread crumbs.

6) Pop in the oven for about 25-30 mins (it should be bubbling through the crust a little).

7) Take out and let cool a little before eating. ENJOY :)

Fun story time! (not really)
So I was at a con today with a few friends and we went up to the local Joanns craft store after we left just to pick a few things up since it was close by. We were wearing lolita, mori, and dolly kei respectively, but none of us were OMG over the top. I wander down an aisle while my friends are right behind me chatting and just as I'm about to ask an associate where the twill is she takes one look at us a blurts out "Sooooo are you guys cosplaying or just freaks?!" I'm so taken aback I just look at her and go, "Neither; is that where the twill is?" (pointing across the way) "Oh yeah! So where are you guys coming from?" she continues as I try to escape by going to the next aisle over and grab a bolt of said twill. "Nowhere! This is just how we dress."

Now I'm kinda getting pissed. I really hate poor customer service, as I'm a waitress and have worked retail, and frankly calling your customers "freaks" is a pretty low mark in my book, so I am doing my level best to just walk away and never see her again, but NO, she is FOLLOWING ME.

"So that is handmade right?" she asks pointing at our dresses. "No, it is Vintage" as I turn back to my friend to ask them if they think the bolt I pulled is white or ivory. "LIKE, *REALLY* VINTAGE?" she shouts to get my attention again, while implying I wouldn't know what vintage was. "Yes! It is Gunne Sax from the '70s" As I grab my bolt and practically run down towards the cutting table just to get AWAY from this chick. "NO WAY I LOVE GUNNE SAX! WHERE'D YOU FIND IT!?" she shouts as she run/follows me. "Ugh, EBAY." I shout over my shoulder as I get to the cutting table and shove my fabric at the cutting clerk. "Oh" weirdo says in a disappointed tone. "OH HAVE YOU BEEN TO *insert random local store here* THEY HAVE TONS OF GREAT FINDS!" I give her the "you're still talking to me why?" look and say "what? no! I'm not from here! god!" and she FINALLY leaves, as some customer starts tugging at her sleeve to ask a question.
So in summary, insulting people is a great way to make new friends?????????

SOCIALLY AWKWARDEST MOMENT TODAY. WHICH IS SAYING SOMETHING AS I SPENT 90% OF IT AT AN ANIME CONVENTION.
