You want me to sew WHAT??

All I've been posting lately is updates on new stuff for sale, so I'll take a break from that for a bit.

I get a lot of sewing job requests from friends and family. I probably turn down 90 percent of them, because... well, I don't feel like giving the full explanation, so I'll just say it is because I'm an asshole and I have better things to do.

Last week, though, I agreed to sew a tent together for my neighbor's circus-themed party. For FREE! I'm such a generous, wonderful person! Ok, actually it was in exchange for free booze on the night of the party. They bought six different sized sheets from a thrift store and had me sew them all together into one giant tent.

Here is the result. This picture was taken from my sewing room window.

And here is the aftermath, five days later. Good to see that they don't clean up after their parties any more than my house does. We really don't have to do much, because the homeless people always grab all the empty cans and bottles the next day.

A few hours before the party, a friend of mine ran into a traveling band that was trying to find a show to play that night. So we said they could play the neighbor's party and crash at my house for the night. My memory is a little hazy about that night, but I think the band was called Grog. (That drink for free thing was probably a bad idea.)

The tent ended up looking pretty cool!

My friend/neighbor Brandon organized the party, here he is being silly in his ringleader costume. Thanks for all the vodka, Brandon!

What with the punk rock shows in my basement every month, and the neighbor's crazy costume parties, it is difficult for me to find any reason to leave 21st street!

In June, Brandon planned a Mad Max themed party, here's a picture taken right when people started showing up:


I'm the one with the black stripe over one eye and the poofy blue hair. They had a costume contest that night. The winner got... a jug full of water!

August Update

I'm finally caught up with custom orders that were made while I was away, so shipping times are back to normal!

Yesterday I added the clothes from the polkadot line to my website. Click on the pictures below to go to item pages with size and price info.

As soon as I was back in town I placed orders for a lot of the best-selling items on my website that were out of stock. As of today, long-sleeve and short-sleeve fishnet shirts are back in stock. Scroll down to see what will be back in stock next week.

New stuff: (click pictures to go to item pages)

Back home!

I'm back home and back to work. My Europe trip was very fun (and very overwhelming) and I will post pictures once I catch up with all the work I need to do for my website. Thanks to everybody who was patient enough to order off my website while I was away! I almost feel like I had a paid vacation last month. But I'm sure I won't be feeling like that after I attempt to do three weeks of work in three days.

I should be caught up with custom orders by the middle of next week, so shipping times will be back to normal pretty soon.

 My brain is still on Europe time right now. I've been working since 5am this morning (after waking up at 3) and I feel like I'm balancing on the very edge of my sanity. I hope tomorrow is better, because I'll need to start sewing again!
