Holiday Hop Guest Star: Kelly Fricker

During the Holiday Hop, Urban Arts and Crafts will be hosting Kelly Fricker on Friday November 2nd from 1-4. Kelly Fricker is the owner of KellyGirl Studio.  She has been sewing since she was a girl.  Her passion for collecting vintage fabrics led her into garment design.  She couldn't bear to see all of those fabulous fabrics just sitting on the shelf.  Skirts have always been the centerpiece of her collections.  Designing and producing one-of-a-kind clothing led her to open KellyGirl Studio in downtown Parkville, MO, in 2008.  In addition to designing and constructing garments, she also began teaching others to sew.      

KellyGirl creates funky, functional clothing for women who have a unique style.  Her customer is one who doesn't want to look like all the others.  A KellyGirl has a story to tell....and her style is one way to tell it.  Many of the KellyGirl designs repurpose other clothing items.  Her most poplular item is the "t-shirt skirt", a flattering 6-panel skirt made from used cotton t-shirts.   The t-shirt skirt is a great way to get those big, boxy t-shirts out of your drawers and actually wear them, in a different way!  All skirts are a one-of-a-kind custom design.  

Today, Kelly operatees KellyGirl Studio out of her home and teaches sewing classes at Urban Arts and Crafts.  You can find her clothing for sale at Aura Hair Studio and Boutique in downtown Parkville, MO.  To find out more about custom t-shirt skirts, visit her blog:
