My Ethnic Dolls are ones that you won’t find on the shelves of Walmart! A few years ago I received these Muslim styled dolls from a person who knew I appreciated art, crafts and collected interesting dolls. They sat on my art shelf for years staring at me in their plastic boxes. I had never taken the dolls out of their boxes, until a friend and I decided to see the fabrics up close. What a surprise. They were plastic, molded old styled Barbie Dolls, with Yellow Blonde hair, hand painted kookie styled blue eyes, wrapped in these beautiful fabrics. All held together by old rusty pins. I realized how precious they were. Thus began my 6 month process of painting my dolls to come to life.

Trish began sewing at a very young age in the sun parlor of her grandmother and her lady friends in Tampa, Florida. Her grandmother operated a local boarding home on the corner of the Famous Bayshore Blvd, that even had a wishing well and a flower garden. The women would discuss local news, politics, religion, books, education, community interests while embroidering, sewing, knitting, tatting, making baskets, painting both acrylic and watercolors, while someone was always playing the piano and break into song. Everyone wore the most beautiful aprons to cover their day dresses, as a southern woman, was always in decor in case guest stopped by. Thus the beginning of her creative clothing.
Trish had won numerous and prestigious sewing awards for her creations: American Sewing Guild, San Diego Fair, Cover of Apron.olgy Magazine 2013, Stampington & Company, featured in 4 Apronology magazines, Home Magazine all for her aprons. Her Couture Clothing & Jewelry has been displayed and featured in fashion shows, Published in AlteredCouture, Belle Amoire, , Belle Amoire Jewelry and Sew Sommerset.
All of Trish’s aprons are one of a kind, individually and hand designed and sewn.
I created this reversible house dress in memories of my grandmothers who taught me how to sew. They often donned these beautiful house dresses to cover their day dresses, just in case company would just stop by to visit, they would appear graciously beautiful and coiffed. I used an old vintage retro pattern combine the pink embellished material with a black/pink material, making it reversible in case you spilled something on the front. Fabric and lace was found in vintage material warehouse in San Fransico in the bedding department. Of course, I had other ideas!

My inspiration came from the Antebellum period when women wore hop skirs, corsets, pantalets, gloves and wide-brimmed hats. Growing up reading and watching the Movie: Gone with the Wind, I was inspired by Scarlett O’Hara’s use of her curtains to make her dress to meet Rhett Butler. I thought, she should have had a fancy apron, in case he came by while she was in the kitchen! 3 tier flirty 1/2 apron with biased tape with unusual stitching made this apron a delightful fancy.

This vintage styled apron was inspired by my youthful memories of “The Big Circus”. The various big drink and lemondae stands, flair of the circus costumes gave me inspiration to embraces a frilly, feminine, chic spirit.
