happy new year everyone.  i've been sewing like mad the last week, finishing  samples for a small late winter collection coming to the shop soon.  really the star here is the new vest we worked out in december.  available in "rope" and "iced mocha" with a contrast cream border.  silk and baby alpaca, it's very soft and warm.  the cut works over any of the modaspia shells or pintucks.  this is mostly a collection of easy separates that can be mixed & matched.  a few pieces are one of a kinds. most can be pre-ordered if you're interested:  parish skirt in navy or silver-grey.  pintuck blouse in navy calico cotton or the paisley. vest in black calico cotton.
* note, model wears the medium "new vest" in these pics only because we don't have the small sample yet.  still, it looks nice.  a small will be a tad more fitted and shorter.  we'll have pics of that soon.
oh !  so this is the lovely melissa ... she was a customer-turned-model back in 2009.  since then she has moved a bit, had 3 little girls and recently settled in MY town.  she and her husband have a working farm with dairy cows, sheep and chickens.  if it ever stops raining we have grand plans to do a second photo shoot out at her place.  strictly fun and editorial.  can't wait!
