I like to make things and take them off. I farm a bit in my backyard. And I dance around a lot.

I’ll post a color version of this soon, this piece is bright as all get out. I don’t know how often I will bead these veil edges in the future, it takes some serious time. This one is beaded all the way across, and has a peek of heavily beaded black lace under the blossoms as well. #altbridal #bridal #burlesque #pinup #filmnoir #birdcageveil #veil #ornatrixcouture #wedding

It was meant to be a garter belt, but now I’m thinking maybe a tarty little dress?  Or half slip and bra combo. We’ll see. #ornatrixcouture #sewingbytheseatofmypants

Mmmm…October mornings.

Mmmm…October mornings.

I love how these product shots came out (thanks Isreal Caine!), but I’ve realized I have no idea what to call this piece. ┬áIt makes me think of laquerware or tea cups…

Today, my sad chipped fence is just perfect. I kind of wish it were only ever September and October in Washington.
