And what makes it so special to me is that this is first. Stampington produces upscale, remarkably high quality content and the photography is first rate. The items featured are so unique. Take this "bottom on the top" dress created by Tracy Schultz, how out of the box can one possibly think?

Beth Livesay, the esteemed editor of Altered Couture, chose to feature two of my projects I sent into her. One is tmy altered Springtime blazer.
Lots and lots of detail here! I also sent my tree of life corduroy jacket and that was featured as well. This one combines hand stitching the appliques in place in lieu of
machine stitching using a cozy blanket stitch.
The current copy of Altered Couture can be ordered here.
