In keeping with the celebration of all things new, we’re thrilled to introduce you to Jessica Moore, an amazing mom and resourceful craftswoman passionate about making old things new again. An architect by trade but a designer by heart, Jessica has blossomed as a brilliant seamstress, transforming second hand clothes into something to be treasured. Her specialty is creating beautiful tiny wears from ordinary men’s dress shirts.
As an architect and mother, reusing material is important to Jessica, but just as significant is the preservation of memories.
Seen here is Jessica’s father’s shirt. She remembers him wearing it often and thought it fun to re-purpose for her daughter. She made the straps long for options to tie in the back or front in a bow or to double wrap the waist and knot in the back.
Jessica sells her one-of-a-kind collections at a local North Carolina boutique and works on commissioned pieces by request. She blogs about her work and her passion here: Little Grey Line.
