Chores ᐧ 14 Habits


14 Habits

Dear heart,

Sometimes I wish I could go back
and stop myself
from giving you all my bad habits
that burden you so today
But then I remember that if I truly gave them
I can replace them too
Or perhaps that we both can

Words by Shaina Yang

Chores is a collection of eighteen hand-embroidered vintage chore coats, celebrating the beauty of earnest labor. Each piece is a vintage garment transformed through a unique pattern of hand-embroidery and beading, inspired by the unintentional yet beautiful splatters left on an old painting smock.

Because they are vintage pieces, each coat is slightly different in size, fabric, and condition.

14 Habits measures:

Cross Chest 23.5" (47" Bust)
Body Length 26"
Sleeve Length 24"

The fabric is a heavyweight cotton twill with dark blue stitching, hard-wearing with a structured drape. There is an interior pocket on the wearer's right side; the stitching around the pocket's perimeter is visible from the outside. It is in great condition, with no noticeable wear and tear.

Please hand wash cold with mild detergent, and line dry. Warm iron on reverse with a little steam.

Joy's brother Justin (in photos) is 5'5" tall and measures:

Cross Chest 17" (34" Bust)
Body Length 25.5"
Sleeve Length 22" 

*Choose what you pay:

$380 - Covers materials and labor for creating this piece

$480 - Helps sustain my practice by paying for work that happens beyond garment construction alone

$580 - Contributes to the growth of my practice, allowing me to invest in tools, people, and future projects + comes with a surprise bonus item

Please note: If any one pricing tier is marked as "sold out," the item is no longer available. This is due to a quirk in the website's inventory management system that Joy has yet to find a good solution for. Thank you for understanding!
