About Trollop & Hussy
A canceled European burlesque tour, a forced break from society and a desire to keep my hands busy. I decided I would spend my quarantine remaking all my burlesque costumes. Inspired by Nudie Cohn (of course[the show was western themed]) I found an old chainstitch machine and away I went. Once I figured out how to steer the damn machine, I was hooked. With desire to embroider everything in sight and a push from a friend to start selling my work, Trollop and Hussy was born.
About the Creator
I grew up as the youngest in a very large family and quickly realized that I loved crafting and sewing, it gave me a quiet and calm space in my boisterous household. As I grew older I started customizing all of my clothing items, out of a love of fashion but also because I had a very hard time finding clothes that fit me the way I wanted them to. My parents, noticing how much time I was spending hand sewing, decided to get me a sewing machine. My dad became my first (and still probably my favorite) sewing teacher. After high school I took some community college classes to continue honing my craft and then went on to work with multiple designers and seamstresses around the Bay Area. I am excited to finally be bringing my own designs and dreams to life. Using a free motion embroidery machine, each piece available is personalized with a one of a kind design. Unlike modern day embroidery machines, each stitch on my items is hand placed with a small steering handle attached to my sewing machine. Let's work together to make you a one of a kind piece you will cherish for years to come!
