Clothing and Craft

Because so much art is wearable these days, and because I have a long history with many forms of clothing creation, it seems only natural that I should now find myself seeking to make and modify clothes. Here are some fantastic web sites for help with methods, inspiration, and fun!

*Note that I am in no way affiliated with any of these sites. I simply admire their ability and willingness to provide the world with their knowledge.
