Most importantly to TIMI's intents and purposes are my early DIYs found in the posterity drawer. Both projects were complete originals! (N.B. Those are two different turquoise and paisley fabrics. I
had still have a penchant for turquoise and paisley.)

I shudder imagining what vintage piece from my mom's limited collection was harmed in the making of this top/tunic/dress thing. The solid fabric was butchered from the wife of William the Conqueror costume my grandma made me for a world history class presentation I gave in 9th grade.
I stumbled across this ribbon tag in my sewing box when making the shirt. I have no idea where it came from, but am guessing my grandmother or grandfather (he once used a stapler instead of pins to sew my sister a pink plaid polyester shift dress) saw my budding talent and preemptively made my own labels.
Or so I like to think.
