I’ve been perfecting my favorite shirting pattern. Once it’s absolutely right the hunt will start for the perfect linen fabric. It’s slow sewing. This piece has 31 small buttons & hand picked stitching. But it’s The One -The perfect linen shirt with heirloom details & old fashioned leanings.
It needed a beautiful bias wrap printed organza skirt. The floral pattern is super pale and can only be seen if you’re trying. Wouldn’t this be the loveliest bridal skirt? Worn with a bright slip would change it entirely (and the floral pattern would be more apparent). It ties with a wide silk satin ribbon waistband.
This one of a kind skirt will be in the shop update next week. See more of it then.

This new dress on the form:
& on the sewing table: making a matching Momma & Toddler Halifax set for a friend.
New timeless heirloom ideas for the season: bespoke women’s-ware shirts? A skirt I’ve been dying to make for years -each one a bit different. A few wrap knit pieces -wrapped never gets out of my system.
And a one of a kind dress fit for a modern cinderella. Speaking of – Into the Woods? Anyone else very excited?
Happy Friday. May your end of October be full of magic!
