About the Shop
It's a tale as old as time.
Girl buys fabric.
Girl buys way more fabric than she will ever use.
After more than a decade of sewing my own vintage-inspired clothing and costumes, I realized that my passion for collecting fabric was rapidly outpacing my passion for actually using it. That's why – in 2017 – I opened my shop over on Instagram at @shopmakethislook.
My goals for that small shop were simple: Dip my toes in retail. Sell the stuff that I love to those who will love it too. Be honest with my customers. Admit mistakes. Learn a lot through research. Make educated guesses and don't be afraid to say "I don't know." Source the best fabric and give old things new life. Inspire. Like literally – with a little Photoshop and a lot of ideas. And, of course, sometimes keep the really good stuff for myself.
While the shop may be bigger, my goals remain the same and I look forward to providing a fantastic shopping experience for my existing community of customers, as well as those new to Make This Look!
