About Fabrefaction Studio

Fabrefaction is a clothing design studio that offers unique, custom made clothing and costume pieces with a historic, romantic, and whimsical feel. My creations are a fusion of many historical design styles, inspired mostly by the Victorian and Medieval time periods, but also including elements that I invent myself. I am always experimenting and incorporating new and innovative clothing design features into my pieces. 

Each item I make is handsewn using high quality fabrics, recycled materials, and components with a limited availability, so each piece is one-of-a-kind. I often work with customers to custom design items that fit their specifications. 

I am gathering a great following of loyal customers who are folks from many worlds including Steampunk, Pirates, Neo-Victorian, Cosplay, Medieval/Renaissance and Celtic, Burning Man, Dr. Who, Dickens Fair, Zombie Pub Crawlers, and other non-conventional people who want something unique and artistic to wear every day.

Come visit me at my new store in Auburn, California! It is not only a store, but a working studio where I create my one-of-a-kind products, and also teach sewing. 

We now offer COSTUME RENTALS at the store as well!

Praise for Fabrefaction Studio:

"Your glorious clothes are the stuff of dreams!!!!"

"I got so many compliments on the coat. Trying to think of new places and excuses to wear it. I’m so glad you accepted my commission proposal. Thank you! "

"The coat is very very nice and looks great, it fits me perfectly I am so delighted, filled with joy and I am enjoying every second of it. Please forgive me of being speechless of how to express myself this wonderful piece of art you made for me. This is not only attire, but a piece of 1800s history that I now own. Due to your professional work you are bringing to us the ancient lifestyle and fashion to a modern world of today."


"Liz is so talented, skilled & creative! Both coats we bought are gorgeous. We're looking forward to wearing them to a Steampunk event, Dickens Faire, and more!"

"Creative, whimsical, and unique clothing, what a statement you make when you enter the room in one of these pieces."

“Your work caught my eye because it is elegant, charming, and dynamic”

"The package was just delivered and I must say I am in awe!  Not only is the construction and fit superb, you have such an eye for using the fabric to best advantage.  I love how the vest emphasizes the floral shapes in the brocade, while the tail coat uses the movement of the dynamic paisleys.  Great work, I am truly honored to own them!  The tail coat is the perfect balance of elegance and whimsy, part symphony conductor, part psychedelic fox.  I adore them both!!"

"OMG! OMG! OMG!  I got my vest today!  It is awesome! This is a true art piece. I mean it.  I am so proud to say I have one of your pieces."

"Your work is unique. You have an amazing fashion instinct."

"My package arrived today! Of course I love the piece. It's just delightful and makes me feel elegant. Thank you so much, I can't wait to work with you again."
