When I got this moderately-stretchy jersey I was planning on making some baggy pants for Burning Man, but upon arriving back in New Orleans realized that most of my clothes were made for the California summer. I needed something loose and flowing to cope with the heat and humidity, so I whipped up this dress right away.

As always, this was my own design without any patterns or assists.

The stripes on the fabric are a light gold. It’s not too flashy but does make the dress a little more ritzy.

There was a bit of a challenge keeping this dress from looking frumpy–in order to keep the dress from sticking to my sweaty body I cut it a little on the large side. It took some critical thinking, but now I feel completely chic in this dress. I can tie the belt tight or leave it loose for air flow, so it’s got a bit of versatility. I can’t help but be impressed at how these thin straps always stay right over my bra straps.

I love the pockets! This was my first time with full, gathered pockets and I think they turned out very well. I wore this dress to a party last night and was able to fit TWO cans of beer in each pocket (I was also wearing roller skates and had kitty whiskers drawn on my face, just to give you the complete picture).




I’m always so pleased at how my tee shirts come out! These shirts were all made for markets and Etsy, so pick one up for yourself!

Many thanks to Lorraine for modeling on our trip to Seattle.

And another bicycle tee. It’s got a design very similar to this earlier shirt, but of course since I drew it myself there are little differences.

I’m very excited about these mushroomy shirts! I love mushrooms in so many ways. There’s the green shirt with the orange drawing as well as a light grey shirt with aqua fungi and I’m not sure which one I like more.

As always, every drawing is done by hand, so they are always unique. I made my own tee shirt pattern that looks great on everyone. I use a fabulously soft and silky jersey from Fabric Planet that is a dream to wear. The shirts are free sized, meaning they will stretch and drape to accommodate and flatter your figure.

On another note, I can’t quite decide for myself between “tee shirt” and “T shirt.” I need to have a standard format for my website and Etsy shop. Any opinions?




It seemed time for a fresh batch of tee shirts. I’ve been playing with a lot of new designs and styles, expanding from just the bicycle-themed shirts. I like having the drawings on pockets–it gives me more flexibility than if I stuck to all-over drawings only.

As always, these shirts are cut from my own pattern. The soft stretchy jersey fits just about any body beautifully! And, they are all available in my Etsy shop.

I call this one Robot Heart, named after a particularly rockin art car at Burning Man. The robots of the future will love and carry red balloons!

I really love these peacocks! It’s such a great bird for stylization and color experiments. Jason even says they look slightly alien. I made one peacock tee shirt and another scoop-neck tank.

Well, I can’t stay away from bicycle shirts completely! This one really spells it out–bicycles are fun, no room for arguments.

Many thanks to Lorraine for modeling these outside the Rendezvous bar in Seattle!
