Fresh off the sewing machine!

Yeah that's right, fresh off the machine and already in my etsy shop! I had posted before when I was working on this dress and was having a hard time with that very sharp angle in the front but I got around it, learned a trick or two and voila!

I was pretty reluctant to let this one go and not keep it for myself but I think i will make another one in this same exact style but different prints. I just loved the fit ansd style so much. I really love how the sleeves are kimono but run into the bodice with a different print, I think the contrast is pretty freaking bad ass!

Then there is this cute little reversible bolero lace shrug. Ahhh, i just love  the fit and how it's 2 in 1! You get the choice of Ivory w/embroidered lace or below the more delicate Ivory Lace

This idea was too cute that I had to make one in a totally different fabric- woven and more dressy for the more sophisto types out there. Well, I really just fell in love with the Jewel toned colors of the Teal and Ruby on each side.

I'm not too conventional when it comes to designing, as far as  seasons go. I don't choose colors based on the season, I can very well make a bright canary yellow dress for winter or a dark Grey dress for summer. It all just depends on my mood and what fabrics catch my eye. However, since our winter here is so mild it will be nice to begin working on slightly different fabrics, more sweater knits, maybe turtle necks? I'm looking a little forward to chilly weather but so long as it stays sunny!
I  like the picture below, it's a church where me and my best friend used to walk by when we were in high school .I like the boarded up windows,  spooky!


  1. I'm really inspired by your designs- once my sewing machine gets out of the shop I get to start creating things again! I'm looking forward to a productive fall.winter of making beautiful clothes- how can you bear to sell any of the lovely pieces you make???

  2. Crystal Thank You! I'm very happy my designs can inspire you in any way, I know that feeling of seeing things and knowing it's possible to do it yourself. I initially began just making things for myself only, but began to think how fun it would be to see others wearing them too. I can't wait to see what you come up with, please keep us posted!

  3. Lovely!
    And I have your amazing maxi marked as one of my etsy faves, it is magical!
