new frocks

Monday, April 30, 2012 – Filed under: Uncategorized ::

It was hard to list this last little team if fresh frocks, though their size 2 or 3T made it easier to resist spiriting thm away an pretending we had never deigned + intended these for the shop (hee). My mom and shop partner made these, turning her many decades of clothes design + textiles work into sweet dresses that seem so very right now.

The color-block mint one is made with a cotton linen blend we found in a local store, and has 4 little buttons at the back to close it.

And these are new versions of our Ava chevron dress – one in olive green with turquoise, and the other in orange with royal blue.

The little details matter so much. And since we try to design sustainably so that the clothes can last beyond one season (hopefully beyond one year), there is an extra button hole at the shoulders for adjusting as she grows… and an extra few inches in the handsewn hemp to let down. And dresses can become tunics… can become shirts!

And this Mama is itching for a few new summer dresses – oh, Pinterest has made that quite intense (people have been pinning the most gorgeous dresses!) Are you doing any sewing for yourself these days? Wishing you a wonderful start to your week.
