Unicycle Assembly

Unicyle Assembly..or as Etsy likes to shorten it to; Unicyle Ass. Hee hee
So the new venture is here! and I'm half excited and half an emotional centaur. I have fallen in love with making clothes, especially from other clothes. It feels like every other thing that I have worked on in the past, is contributing to this project. The composition of paper collage, the I can make anything attitude..all just folds right in. I chose the name Unicyle Assembly for a couple of reasons. For me the Unicyle is a lot like a Unicorn. Impossible. Unbelievable. Out of Reach..and all of those things are also what I've been telling myself my whole life, regarding fashion and my style. Having been a big girl ever since puberty, I have had a tumultous relationship with my body. I've hated it more than I've loved it, to be completely honest. I used to play a lot of sports when I was younger, always working out and going, going, going..and I still had a spare tire. I had terrible eating habits, starving myself as if I were not worthy of a meal. And so growing up this way, I never thought I could be a poster child for high fashion. 

Well, through time and love and understanding..I've become Popeye. I am what I am what I am. and I love me. and I love having on an outfit that nobody else would or could ever wear. I sometimes want to fade into the background, but I don't ever want to just be one of the crowd, either. I Unicycle Assembly says to me, it's unique, it's amazing and it's been put together quite deliberately. I'm currently loading up my etsy shop with my first 14 dresses...Let me know what you think!!!
