Now at Pageboy Boutique: Holiday Batch 2014


Seasonal greetings from the sewing studio. This weekend is the annual Lawrenceville Cookie Tour event, a great reason to bundle up and head over to Butler Street to stroll up and down the pedestrian-friendly retail corridor to find local handmade gifts for your loved ones. Be sure check out the latest Iron City Upcyclery collection now available at Pageboy and pick out something new to wear to your favorite holiday get-together. In this new batch, you'll find eye-catching skirts in bright, bold vintage fabrics printed with geometric and abstract shapes, an emerald green corduroy A-line skirt made from pristine vintage corduroy, plus a very special piece: a striking, silky blouse in bronze and gold tones that will make someone out there the belle of their yuletide ball. Thanks for choosing handmade, environmentally-friendly goods this holiday season!

Now at Pageboy Boutique: Summer Collection 2014


After a longer-than-expected intermission while my family and I renovated our first home, a cozy, historic colonial in Pittsburgh's Northside, I'm delighted to report that my trusty old Morse sewing machine has once again been humming along, merrily!

Stop by Pageboy Boutique in Pittsburgh to check out the latest Iron City Upcyclery collection, freshly delivered just in time for your effervescent summer outings. In this new batch, I've striven to capture the magic of the season with light hues, soft fabrics and whimsical details; you'll find both women's and men's garments in a variety of sizes and styles ranging from folksy and casual to polished and opulent. As always, each garment has been upcycled with integrity and dedicated craftsmanship, giving each piece a sustainable quality and unique flair. Sneak a peek at the collection below!
