Last week I had to dig down to the very bottom of my pattern bin, and I ran across this treasure. People are always asking me who comes up with the designs. Sometimes it’s us sometimes it’s the office sometimes it’s the wrestlers and sometimes it’s a combination. this design however was solely from @realxpac. Not only was kid talented in the ring but he was also talented in coming up with his own designs. I always loved working with Sean and had the pleasure of making his gear from day one to the day he left. Friendships were formed and still remain to this day. And @anjewels_julieyoungberg and I will always remember the day we painted your toenails pink without u knowing 😂 #wwe #wweseamstress #123kid #xpac #family

This post is to thank all the people who made it possible to make @charlottewwe robe for #wrestlemania35 possible. First I’d like to thank @rhinestoneguy for always making sure I have enough #swarovskicrystals for my projects If anyone is looking for the best priced crystals I suggest giving them a look. 2nd I’d like to thank Paul and Adina at @schumanfeathers for always supplying me with amazing feathers and thanks Adina for sticking with me while I made my very long decisions. And lastly to Brooke from @fabricsworld who is one of the best at what she does. And thanks for the recommendation to visit the Miami location where I was able to get the beautiful lace that I dyed. My goal for this robe was to try and purchase all my materials from local small businesses in south Florida. Which I was proud to say I support. #wweseamstress #wwe #smallbusiness #southflorida #wrestlemania35 #purplerobe #queen #charlotteflair #sofl #soflosmallbusiness #lovemyjob @ginalevay and @kimberlasskick photo credits

#wwe #wrestlemania35 robe for @charlottewwe started out differently than the final result. The original robe was actually going to be the light blue that I used for the lining. I had purchased the light blue for the outside and the purple for lining. When I went to purchase the feathers, I found out that feathers do not come in light blue, turquoise yes but no baby blue. So I had to come up with another plan. I decided to flip the lining and the outer fabric and make it purple and line it with the blue. I had already made her gear and I thought when she walked down the ramp and she held open the robe everything would still match. I searched everywhere to find purple lace appliqués and had absolutely no luck. I ended up purchasing a white bridal lace that was $189 a yard and I figured I needed at least 1.5 yards. I Knew I would have to come up with a dye mixture that was at least on the same tone. I tried several different dyes and quickly realized that i wasn’t going to get the results I needed to get. I then purchased some acrylic paint in a purple that looks really close with a few drops of white and a lot of water I ended up with a mixture that turned out the same color as the fabric I didn’t have a whole lot of paint mixture to start with so I cut each of the designs out and died them separately. The feathers went on first and then the layout of the lace. the rest was all just decorations. I used buttons and beads and #swarovskicrystals and lots of pearls to make all of the designs. I’m so happy with how it turned out and never even new that purple was Charlottes favorite color. Thank you to @kimberlasskick for the last photo and @ginalevay or the first photo. #wwe #wweseamstress #charlotteflair #purple #queen @schumanfeathers @rhinestoneguy @fabricsworld

I remember back in the day meeting a respectful quiet man named Martin. Such a great guy I met with him and talked about where he wanted his character go costume wise. Martin handed me several packages of hair extensions and asked if I would make him hair pants!!! My first thought was No Way lol. But while talking to me he won me over (slightly ) with his idea of hair pants. we came to a meeting of the minds that I would make them with my own flair. He gave me a pair of store-bought leather pants. I added onto the pants leather scales which I applied with rivets. I then took the hair extensions he gave me and section them into small pieces and inserted The small pieces in between the layers of the scales. The pants were totally creepy looking which is what both of us were trying to achieve. I love the way they turned out!! One of the best things about my job is being able to discuss ideas with my clients and take bits of their ideas and meld them with mine. #wweseamstress #wwe #boogyman #leather #hairextensions #whatnightmaresaremadeof #hairpants

Robe I made for @wwe_asuka This was a project that was totally out of my comfort zone. But I learned so much as I made it piece by piece. All the fabric used in this was hand dyed as was all the fur The robe was originally made to glow in the dark for when she tagged with @trinity_fatu But as things go in tv land they split the 2of them up so we will probably never see all the special glow effects that are on this robe #wwe #wweseamstress #asuka #prowrestling

@sarahloganwwe leather top made for #summerslam2018 Leather I used was scraps from an #undertaker jacket I made for WrestleMania in 2014.

Back when gloves were a fashion statement #pubertychallenge

#fbf one of my most absolute favorite of my @undertaker jackets was his 3rd of the leather series jackets. This was back when he was just starting to trust my creative judgment. I remember him saying to me when I asked him if I could use silver metal designs on it, his response was “don’t go crazy”. So me as the person I am, I ALWAYS push that envelope. I decided to use the same method I developed for @steveaustinbsr vests, in which I burned glue to make leather appear like metal. In each of the small squares is a skull which I stamped into the glue when it was still soft. I then wanted to add studs and rivets but thought it would be silver overload for him. So I came up with the idea to burn the metal I added to his jacket . I got the idea from the motorcycle exhaust pipe on my neighbors Harley. So on my gas stove with a pair of needle nosed pliers I burned one rivet at a time and dropped it in a glass of cold water to cool it down fast. To my knowledge know one had ever used this method in wrestling gear. They turned out amazing and looked like an oil slick. Colors of purple blue copper grey and gold. It took hours for me to get the amount of rivets I needed to make his jacket. Since then I have developed a process where I can make hundreds in as little as 3 minutes. Ahhh, it’s the learning process. But now back to the jacket itself. I wanted the jacket to be versatile. Something he could change and get a different look. So I added a detachable collar and a removable cape on the back that I had cut to resemble cargo netting. The one regret I had on this jacket was that I didn’t add a design to the front of the collar, but I’m always learning and trying to make my jackets better than the one before. Probably the biggest thrill I got was when I happened to walk by a store in New York and see this jacket displayed in the front window. It was a moment in time I will never forget!!! #wwe #wweseamstress #lovemyjob #leathercraft #mydesigns #leather #prowrestling. Thanks @vtl18 for getting me these pictures ❤️

@charlottewwe #WWEEvolution robe. And close up details. This robe was truly a challenge. The original plan was a aqua robe which changed to this. A nude, aqua, lavender, and pink ice queen looking fabric. My original order was short by 3 yards which was not enough to complete the robe. I searched everywhere and couldn’t find any more. So plans were changing again until I found a supplier that was bringing some back from China. It was on again. The robe took about 128 hours to complete and close to 48 gross of #swarovski crystals were added to the design. I was very happy with the results, and relieved it was finally completed I never got to really see Charlotte wearing it but did catch a peak on the monitor. I really wish all the colors of the fabric would have shown up on camera. It looked almost white which some of you know is a definite no no for me. #wweseamstress #wwe #charlotteflair

Looking back at some of my photos and came across these of @realmelina in a Halloween costume I made her for a match. She asked me to make her a @marvel #spiderwoman costume. I had a little less than a week to complete and pretty much guessed on the placement of the yellow chest piece. The mask was just a plain white full face mask that I bought at @joann_stores I cut and painted it with some model car paint I had laying around. Melina added the wings and it was complete!! #wwe #wweseamstress #marvel #spiderwoman #cosplay

@charlottewwe #wwesummerslam robe. Love love this color on Charlotte. Started buying supplies and making this robe and gear for last years summer slam. Unfortunately Charlotte was not going to be on the card so I put it on the back burner. I wanted it to be a robe for the warmer months since it was such a hot and fiery color. PPV came and went but for me the obvious choice was summer slam. So I waited the full year before picking up where I left off. I made the choice of underlining the lace with the fabric I used for the gear. Probably wouldn’t do anything like that again because of the stretch I used a fabric facing under the spandex and it helped stabilize it All in all it turned out to be one of my favorites. And of course she looks so beautiful in this color 😍😍 I want to thank @schumanfeathers for these amazing coral peacock feathers and @rhinestoneguy for the over 60 gross of @swarovski crystals used in completing this outfit. 😊🙏🏻 #Wwe #wweseamstress #eyeofthepeacock #summerslam2018 #coralfeathers #swarovski #barclayscenter

#fbf Mr America. I had the opportunity a while back to make gear for @hulkhogan. The concept came from the office and was to be completed within a week. Since I had never worked with Terry before, the office had his wife take measurements and send them to me. From there I finished the gear to a point of where it needed to be fitted to him. I was flown from my home in Chicago where I lived at that time to Tampa and rented a car and drove to Terry’s house. The fitting went great and I was there about 15 minutes. It probably would’ve taken less time but I am crazy when it comes to matching up designs. I’ve never been a fan of tights with a design and kneepads on the outside where the design continues. Terry thanked me and loved what I had done so far. I said goodbye and walked out to my car to drive back to the airport. A few seconds later Terry came outside and told me that he would drive in his car to escort me out of his neighborhood because it was a little tricky to get out of. Back then there was no GPS and only written directions or maps to get around. Terry was always a pleasure to work with and little known fact is that he actually dubbed @anjewels_julieyoungberg and I The Material Girls that name stuck for quite sometime. And Jules and I always got a kick out of Hulk singing that song when he saw us. PS I couldn’t stand that mask and have always been embarrassed about making it even though it looks just like the drawing #wwe #wweseamstress #mramerica #redwhiteandblue #thematerialgirls

@natbynature and I have a love of everything @versace so we took a vintage design as inspiration and came up with this ! I added lots of crystals from @rhinestoneguy and she pared it with a @dreamwarriorsclothing Jacket. I love how it turned out and how it looks on her... but then again she could wear a burlap sack and still look amazing!!😍
