I began my Etsy shop "Once Upon a Bustle" because I have always wanted to make beautiful items for people to enjoy all over the world. I have over 16 years of professional tailoring, sewing, patternmaking and design experience.
I mostly create one of a kind menswear pieces, I do create womens wear as well, but my first love has always been menswear. I see my creations as art, I do not see the items that I create as merely clothing. I look at and approach each item that I make as an artist, and each creation as my artwork and the final product as an investment for my customer. Each piece is made with extra fabric hidden on the inside of the garment. The reason I do this is so that my pieces can be altered to be made larger (or smaller) over time. This way I ensure that my pieces will last and be a functioning part of my customers wardrobe for many years to come.
I use only the highest quality fabrics when making each piece. Since I do look at each custom item that I create as an investment, the fabrics that I use matter. I choose fabrics that are durable and that will last the test of time.
Since opening my shop, I have created items for Independent Films, Celebrity Photo Shoots, Museums, been featured in several blogs, and have made pieces for clients that have appeared on Television.
