I am a full-time dressmaker and part-time costume historian.  My current passions are for gender-bending fashion, queer history, and sewing techniques.  When I’m not sewing, I can generally be found at my favorite local queer bar, Nowhere, walking around Manhattan and Brooklyn, and obsessively accumulating used books.
