Hand Sewing Is Slow Fashion

Scoop neck vest with a bicycle to ride.

The long scoop neck vest is our Scoop Neck Bicycle Tunic style. It has a double zipper for ease on a bike, in a car, and for walking around. The deep side pockets can hold all your treasures, keys, mask, glasses, and phone.

Because each piece is one-of-a-kind, they vary slightly in trims, fabric choice and fabric placement. This style jumps for joy when it gets to be custom fit. Just email your measurements for Chest, Waist, and Length to see more styles in your size.

One of these cute bucket hats are perfect for those bad hair days!  Originating in Orange County, each one is made from the big, ubiquitous swatch books Interior Designers use to pick fabrics for your curtains or upholstery. No dumping in the landfill with our bucket hats.

These big swatch books have proven to be difficult to take apart or use, with the paper glued to the back, and can easily end up in the landfill. 

It so happens they are perfect for making our bucket hats, the swatches are beautiful and often color coordinated.  For more images of one in your color range, please email us at [email protected]



Mary's so personable and I love the vest I purchased from her. Purchasing through square was easy.
