Standing Tall






Ladies and Gentlemen- I present to you my pride and joy!! Out of everything I have ever sewn , this is the piece Im most proud of to date. It was such a thrilling process to sketch my idea, take the time to find the right material, sew it and have it come out EXACTLY how I had planned. Aaand if I may say so- it brings a smile to my face each time I put it on.
What do you think??
Im going through this process of discovering that I actually have a certain style in the things I design and make. Each piece has an element of simplicity yet it still has something to make it unique. It stems from my eternal problem of finding basics that still entice me. Shopping for basics is something I need to do deliberately because those things dont naturally draw me in -so in order to satisfy my lack of basics- I design.

wow, it came out beautiful. Wish I had that skill....I can see you pairing this with almost anything really. And I do love how you did the monochromatic look with the deviation of the tan gladiators.

Lovely.
