We specialize in larger sizes, famous for our Hawaiian shirts (from size small to 5x), Victorian and Edwardian corsets, and fleece ear hats.

About Me

I’ve been sewing for about 20 years. Before i could sew, I taped and stapled clothes together on my dolls. My degree is in costume design, more specifically, theatrical costuming. Curious Cat Clothing consists of me, my husband (who shleps heavy things) and my¬† #1 minion, Erin, who helps (wo)man the booth at conventions. I’m a stay-at-home mommy to my son Gabriel and daughter, Lillian.

I AM A FABRIC SNOB! If it’s not cotton, silk, linen or just doesn’t feels pretty, I don’t want to work with it. I have a big room of fabric/trim/buttons/patterns. So much fabric, in fact, that we now built a studio in the basement, which is nice because I can watch sci-fi while I work now.
