So...I've not blogged since last summer. I may or may not have rewritten the first sentence of this post five times. How does one write blog entries again? Anyway, here's what I've been working on. | A few months back I decided I wanted to dive back in to trying to run a business. I wanted to work on getting a few patterns refined that I thought would be sellable and beautiful together, so that's what I'm posting today. These were all made for my personal wardrobe and I love and wear each piece to death. Most of this small, seven piece collection is made with modal rayon jersey, but ponte and stretch suede make appearances as well. This post is pretty photo heavy with minimal verbiage because I am already itching to be off my computer, but I hope you enjoy it anyway!
The Beatrice Dress is a faux wrap maxi dress with a slit (as you can tell) and a gathered skirt, I made her for NYE, but I plan to find any excuse I can to wear her year round. Well, maybe. I do live in the south, so I'm going to make a sleeveless version as well.
I haven't named this dress yet, and my friends and I have all been (fittingly) calling it the mountain dress. It's a simple black swing dress with mountains appliqued on it.
This baggy V neck is where the stretch suede comes in. I'm wearing it right now and it is one of my favorite makes so far.
Psst...click on these images to see them larger.
I have tent dresses in both black and white and wear them far, far too often. I think they look good on almost everyone, with almost anything.
A simple white tank that is perfect for our climate (usually, but it was freezing when we took these photos), and the Vanessa panel leggings. They are a perfect match and super comfortable.
I had my first fashion show this past weekend in Athens, GA and it was a blast. Thanks again to anyone who had a hand in it, I'm so glad I got to be there. You can check out their facebook if you want to know more about them.
A comprehensive list of other things Amy Schumer stole.
It's pretty obvious that I don't go with colour often, but there is almost no one whose use of it I respect more than Sophie's, and I pretty much died when I saw this post she did for Spoonflower.
I met some guys who work for International Justice Mission recently and they told me about this shoe company, now I need all the shoes. Thanks.
I hope you're all having a great start to the new year, I want to hear all about it!
