Betty Oatmeal

Looking for that truly one-of-a-kind dress or blouse? I just happened upon the Etsy shop Betty Oatmeal this evening. Shop owner Karen Davisson resides in Seattle and has been making her original works since 1996. The materials she uses are all vintage (fabrics, buttons) and her pieces are beyond unique because she also incorporates vintage tea towels, hooked rugs, needlepoint, wall hangings, etc. Karen even styles her fantastic pieces using vintage patterns from the 40's to the 60's. My love for this first dress is immeasurable, but alas this beauty a Size 1. Curses.
Wonder Woman and The Superfriends dress.
Fashion Feng Shui dress (back). Size 12.

Poker Dogs Win Hands Down smoking jacket. From Betty: "Wrap him up in a bruised green bedspread, camp him up with a bold display of the Poker Dogs, dress him up with a lush green velvet shawl collar and slip him into a lining, slippery as a satin sheet. " Betty Oatmeal, you rock!
