i’ve been working on a small collection for later this summer using some really beautiful imported fabrics i’d stashed away. i wanted to make a dress – something that drew on elements i like in some of the other styles. the new dress is very a-line, with a little split hem at the side. the back of the dress dips a little lower. front pockets. one very long front dart. fitted through the shoulders with a loose, slightly belled sleeve. back keyhole and ties, like the pintuck blouse. the length is to the knee. the top photo shows the fabrics from the collection, some of which are now in production. the new dress will be available in ink or grey linen ($150), the light tan colored cotton w/the flower print ($140) and a few of the navy pixel print ($150). if you’re interested in one of the new dresses feel free to drop me a line. i’ll be cutting these for the seamstress a little into june after i get back. i’m headed out of town with my family for a spell, then flying out to colorado to see my folks for a week. the beginning of summer again .. time flies, doesn’t it?
