The Big Reveal
March 28, 2014
Here’s a little sampling of the first ever aletheia Junkyard collection – handmade streetwear constructed entirely of recycled, salvaged, and otherwise rescued materials. It’s wash-and-wearable, locally sourced, sweatshop- and transport ship-free, super-ethical and chock full of sass. The Hired Hands and I (I pay them in apples and PB) are starting with just Tees, but we’re hoping to expand into shorts and a nice narrow unisex pant as we solve some more creative problems.
This is the real deal. We’ve got labels, hang tags, 2 sergers, a zig-zag, and an aspiring coverstitch, we’ve got freelance graphic artists to pay, it’s serious business.
I’d like to share some more of the vision with you, and work through the raison d’etre of the brand, but for now, just have a look and say what you think. As a work-at-home Mom, I’m sure you can guess how I’m dying for feedback.

Esther was such a stinker this day… or maybe Mama was the stinker. Anyway, here’s an illusion of peace for the sake of fashion.
The dress was made for her when she was a baby. I have to say, though the proportions are a little off, it still works as a tunic two years later. I’m trying to gear my designs more and more this way – if you are going to pay boutique prices for a kids’ garment, wouldn’t you want to have it around for more than a few months? Maybe if I had placed the waist a little lower, it would look a little more believable as a 2T garment.
Should I be worried?
My kids as fashion figures
February 10, 2014
I’m brushing up on my fashion illustration… and realizing that I learned nothing about babies and children in my illustration coursework. My textbooks have nothing, and the web is pretty scant on information, too. I think I’ve decided that a 12 month old is 4 heads, and a 2T is 5. Anyone know a resource for childrenswear illustration?? I’m thinking of turning to kids’ books for answers.
The Junkyard prototype

Here’s my test garment for the junkyard line. Looks pretty kickin’, Esther.
Also, I’m looking for a better name if you are out there.
I’m learning a thing or two about children’s fashion photography. It seems like the best photos are accidental. Don’t let a baby pose, you’ll get dreck to work with. Chase a baby around with a camera while he plays and viola, magic.
