The Baste Laid Plans

In the last few weeks, I have been harassing my Loved Ones to put together websites to show off their own work. So this is me, doing as I said everyone should. Baste Laid Plans is a continuation of Finery Unltd (FUN), which has operated since I graduated as a designer from the Fashion Institute of Technology in 1988.

My work has taken many twists and turns. Here are some of those:

Couture wedding gowns

Research and Construction of Renaissance Gowns


Victorian & Steampunk fun

20-21st Century fashion of many sorts



Writing (which is what the rest of this site is about)
