august collection

 
 

 

i had a rare opportunity to go out with my husband alone a few nights ago and by dusk it was still in the low 90s .. this part of california, so close to places called Desolation Wilderness and a town called Pond, really simmers in august.  i wore a skirt i made a few years ago and the pintuck blouse that is my favorite.  for august i thought i'd have some skirts and blouses sewn up, something to carry you over to fall.  the blouses - i love these fabrics.  the pale pink is a french linen with a windowpane pattern.  the pink is just pale enough to be wearable if that makes sense and has a sliver of grass green thread going through it.  it looks beautiful and just right with the floppy skirt in slate grey raw silk.  just a hint of a shimmer to it.  really nice to wear any time of the year.  the floppy skirt now has pockets on the side seams - something i'd been meaning to add and that makes a huge difference.  you can see the pockets fully of posies in one pic.  the skirt will also be available in a dark navy.  the navy looks crisp and amazing with the pintuck blouse in white.  the white is a new fabric i'm using for the next spring collection but am already so in love with i'm bringing it out now.  a linen and rayon blend, the fabric breathes well - just very soft and comfortable.  you can see how it has a slight pucker to it after washing.  just great.  all items hand wash, line dry.  the skirts will be around $135 and the tops $120.  i'll be cutting them on monday and following a photo shoot in a few days have them in the shop for purchase a little later.  if you would like to pre-order any of the august pieces please get in touch with me via the shop.  thanks!  u.
