Phoebe blouse in Spoonflower fabric

Thursday, March 12, 2015

A little over a month ago a lovely lady contacted me about making the Phoebe blouse in some Spoonflower fabric. I was so excited when she said she wanted to use the prints by Melissa Wastney of Tiny Happy. I've read Melissa's blog for some years now and have always admired her work. I thought it would be fun to share a few pictures of the finished blouse. I can't wait to see how it looks on Meredith!

1960's Inspired Jumper Dress

Tuesday, March 10, 2015


Over the last several months I have been working on something a little different than my usual designs and I'm happy I can finally share it with you. This jumper dress is very much inspired by my love of the 1960's. I have always dreamed of making a dress with a fabric covered belt and buttons. I think they add the perfect touch to a vintage inspired garment. I was so excited to find someone who has a machine to make fabric covered belt buckles and I hired her to make me some for this dress. I think this style is so flattering for many body shapes and hope to make a summer version of this dress in a lighter cotton fabric. Of course I'm always open to custom orders and would be happy to discuss other fabrics if you are interested. I hope you enjoy these pictures that were taken during a snow storm! I know it's a little late as everyone is thinking of spring and summer clothing. But I didn't want to wait until next year to show you this dress!
