All The Devil Made Me Do It garments are hand made by me (so you feel better about the whole sweatshop thing) from 99% fine recycled materials (so you feel better about your impact on the environment), and one-of-a-kind (so you won't see yourself coming and going on the streets). One thing I enjoy is serendipity. I don't like things to be too "matchy-matchy," and often prefer a "rougher" finish to spice things up a bit, especially to my appliqués (one thing I NEVER want is for my hand-made appliqués to look like they were embroidered by a machine!). This is part of my design style. So you may find certain "serendipities" in some garments (a flower or two on one side, but not on the other for instance). These "serendipities" are intentional and contribute to the uniqueness and artistry of each piece.

As far as designs go, I definitely do variations on a theme, and so many items may have "sisters"; but since the materials I have to work with are limited and determined by what quality items I'm able to find second-hand , and because inspiration never hits me quite in the same way twice, no two items are ever exactly alike. One thing I LOVE about "Upcycling" materials is—again--that element of serendipity. You never know what you're going to find. And, for me, finding something extraordinary and unexpected to work with usually leads to designing something extraordinary and unexpected to wear.
