Fluffie Rufflie™ Cavalcade Of Stars!

Fluffie Rufflie's™ have been taking off like crazy this year!
Up until now, I have only been able to make them one at a time. Whenever I see some fabric that floats my boat, I grab it and churn it into something wearable. I take requests. If I can make it, I will.

They fit. Plain and simple. I am still taking custom orders, but I now have a sizing sytem that you can order with. This will help to get orders out faster. Ive taken all the sizes that Ive been using with my custom orders and Ive broken them down to make things easier. You still have to know what size you are, but you can pick a hip size and an inseam and get your garment sooner.

I am a dancer.......I get it. I get that we have bigger bootie, thigh, and calf muscles sometimes - because we USE them. Fabric has to have some give. You have to be able to be comfy and dramatic and move on stage. I know you will enjoy dancing in these!

Ordering Info:

Fluffie Rufflie Dance Pants : a form fitting
yoga-style, low-rise stretch knit pant with 5 layers
of cascading ruffles that start above the knee and
fluff down to the floor.

XS hip 31-35

L hip 37-42
XL hip 39-44

Inseam Sizes:
Wee 28-29
Middie 30-31
Regular 32-33

I know this isnt going to cut it for everyone in the inseam department, so just let me know if you need another inseam size and I’ll work it out for you. These are the most asked for sizes at this point in time. I’ll still do custom orders - inquire about pricing or larger sizes. I should now be quicker at getting these out for you with this sizing system.

Fluffie Rufflie™ Pantaloons are in sizes now also!

How to get the ball rolling........
Give me your zip code and and any colors or extra details you would like to have on your pants. I will let you know if a particular color is unavailable.Black, white, ivory are the most available colors at the moment. I will figure out the whole amount for you and send you an invoice through paypal.I happily will mail to Europe via USPS Global Express.

You can also send paypal payments of half down to get started through my e-mail address : . I will then invoice you for the rest of the amount due once I have recieved all your vital information.

I do not take checks, money orders, or credit cards.
I prefer using these email addresses: or for correspondence as well. Otherwise I cannot be responsible for any mixups should Tribe or Myspace go down.(I do get a lot of ordering there!) make sure I have your phone number just in case!

I then send you a measurement chart that I will need
you to fill out and send back to me as soon as you

As soon as your order comes up in line, I make your
garment.I send you your new Rufflies and
you jump up and down for joy!

I often get requests for contrasting colored ruffles
and if the fabric is readily available, I will gladly
do this for $15.00 extra.

Feel free to ask questions and inquire about any
other costuming needs you may have need of!

Ordering early will ensure delivery
in time for an upcoming gig. If need be, for an added
fee, I can do a rush order.

Sweet Dicken's Costume

I think I took this from a retired Simplicity pattern. The skirt was calling for elastic. Naturally I was horrified and pleated the skirt onto a waistband. This was made quite some time ago and I just cannot remember all the details that went into these costume. I made it look a bit more accurate than the pattern would have suggested. (well, that was always the case back in the day - now there are some pretty nice patterns out there that do the trick!) I made Janet's outfit and Vaughn's vest.
Janet and Vaughn - ready for Dicken's Faire. So sweet!

Another Beautiful Day

Louisa Johnston just sent me her wedding photos. Thank you Louisa! She purchased her dress and veil. She has amazing taste - the dress and veil were to die for! The dress was stunning on her. The veil is exquisite.

I made for her the most beautiful white overdress - like a jumper that she could wear over her dress for a touch more modesty during the ceremony. This also gave her the option of a whole new look for the reception or for dancing after. The bodice closed with "invisible" snaps up under the front strap on one side. A beautiful single crystal button was the focal point at center front. The skirt was pleated from front to back with most of the fullness and length to the back. Louisa chose crystal sheer for this dress. It was shimmery, airy, elegant and fairy-like all at once.

Somerleyton Hall, UK. Be still my heart!

Another beautiful couple. Another beautiful day!
