Marie Linen Dress, perfect for any season

Marie Linen Dress, greenish-gray.
While in the midst of knitting up samples for my fall/winter collection, I've added to the shop a Marie Linen Dress in size M+, ready to ship. Timeless and seasonless, it's perfect for fall days. If you wanted a size other than M+, no worries. I'll be adding it my shop as a handmade to order listing late next month. In the meantime, the size M+ can found in my Etsy shop right here.

Tuileries in White

Tuileries in White.
I made this at the request of a buyer in my Etsy shop, and if I say so myself: It sure is purdy! I am so happy with how it came out that I am sharing it here for you to see. One thing that I did tell my kind buyer before I even listed it for her: the Tuileries in white needs to be worn with a slip underneath or layered over leggings, shorts, jeans or trousers. But that white! So utterly crisp and clean it makes me want to hug it.

I don't plan on putting it for sale in my shop until next spring, but if you'd like to have one before that I may be able to do it upon request only. Contact me at my Etsy shop to see if I can set up a "reserved" listing for you.

Seersucker Bubble Dress

Seersucker Bubble Dress.
"Skip through a meadow, enjoy a picnic on a pretty gingham blanket, take a stroll on a charming cobble-stoned this dress*."

Just now added back to the shop, this is the among the last I'll offer up this summer as I'm going to start focusing on my fall/winter designs.

*I don't think I'll ever stop offering my signature summer dress. The first version I ever created was part of a collection I designed - Mexican folklorico was one of my inspirations - in my first year of fashion school and it walked loud and proud down the runway at the end of the year show. Someday, I'll show you the original. (Still have it around here somewhere. Can't let go of it.)

Get it here in my Etsy shop.

She's baaaaack....

Tuileries, that is.

Inspired by the English-style parks in Paris and Edouard Manet's "Le Linge", I sketched this dress in the lines of the child's clothing in the painting and initially built it using 100% linen in the color of the mother's dress in that same painting. Well, the color is exactly the same but Tuileries is now in 60% linen and 40% cotton. Same drape, comfort and coolness provided by natural fibers. Don't you just heart 'em?

Tuileries in lin-coton, in my Etsy shop right now. Go get her, then take a romantic walk through a park.

The Seersucker Bubble Dress in Red is baaaaaaack

Sunny days, fresh fruit from the outdoor market and lots of ice cream. That's what I think of with my striped seersucker dresses, like this one. Lightweight and slightly textured, seersucker is the thing to wear while traveling or enjoying summer days. And I love the thick red on white stripes! (Woven, so the pattern is reversible.) They remind me of the stripes in fashion during the late 18th century. (You've probably noticed by now that historical clothing rocks my socks.)

This red on white number is the last one in stock. Get it here in my Etsy shop!

Linen Bustier Dress in Candy Pink

Just relisted this sweet little number in my Etsy shop! 100% French linen in a beautiful color that looks like something out of a delish French patisserie.

Know what else? I really heart pink.

Because my buyers asked...

collette tunic.
...I've made more sizes available for a lot of the clothing pieces currently listed in my Etsy shop. XS and L (see body measurements in each shop listing because my sizes are unique to my shop) can now be ordered for some of the items that didn't come in these sizes before. Yay. This may be work for me because I grade each size for all my designs using only my wee hands, a measuring tape, a graph, a french curve and a pencil, but if you ask for it I will probably do it. Who loves ya?

Latest clothing additions to the shop:

thumb190_mariegreenishgray.jpgthumb190_montmartre.jpg thumb190_pinstripe.jpg

Some designs updated in the latest fabrics and colors for this season! All natural, either linen or cotton (or both). Simple, clean and functional with design elements that take them all beyond your average ready-to-wear. As I've mentioned before, I don't keep big bolts or tubes of of fabric lined up in my studio so all these pieces are handmade to order in very small series, which I like to think makes them all a little more special for you.


Seersucker Bubble Dress, updated in beige on white woven stripes. Hangs below the knee so it can be worn on its own, but versatile enough to be layered over jeans or pants. If you'd like to give it the impression that it's shorter, pull up the hem to create a "pouf" effect.


Marie Linen Bubble Tunic in a very special woodland forest green. There are only two of these in existence! One has already been sold. There is one more in the shop and it's probably the last as I don't think that I'll be able to find this particular shade of linen again.


Linen Bustier Tunic in a very special shade of pale greenish gray. Perfect for those trips to the beach or lovely little summer picnics. Wear it with the tie in order to keep it "secure" and in its place. Can be worn many ways, but I think that my favorite is with a pair of distressed denim shorts. P.S. Don't miss the lace detail at the hem - very French country, which is the feel that inspired me in my collection this year.


Marie Linen Dress updated in an earthy color, perfect for spring, summer and all the way through fall. It's a special shade, a medium gray with just the right amount of green in it. It's a very short dress, so if it's worn alone I do recommend a slip underneath. But again, my favorite is layered over shorts or pants. I like to bike around a lot, so that's usually how I wear my tunics or dresses.


Montmartre Linen Dress in a GORGEOUS shade of deep bluish gray, I like to think of it as "midnight". It reflects the light beautifully and has a lovely matte polish to it, which makes it go from casual to dressy very easily.


Pinstripe Bubble Tunic - bordering on mini dress length. 100% cotton shirting with a woven blue on white pinstripe and sweet cotton lace detail at the straps. Another romantic and French country-inspired piece.

New pieces coming this summer, and they will be brand spanking new and never before seen in my shop. (Pssst.....a small peek at one of them can be had in my croquis.)

Latest clothing additions to the shop:

thumb190_madeleine.jpgthumb190_collette.jpg thumb190_deauville.jpg


Madeleine Long Shirt: This one is fresh off the drafting table! A long shirt with mandarin collar and three quarter sleeves. Relaxed, with a hint of French country. {Can you pick it out from these rough sketches?} 100% cotton, lightweight with beautiful detailing.


Colette: This is a modified version of my Montsouris dress, shortened to a tunic and made in linen/cotton in sand, a big color this season. Clean and simple with a neck detail that makes everyone's neck look pretty.


Deauville Tunic: Linen and cotton with ruffle trim in cotton voile. Wear it over a skirt for pure romanticism, edge it out with skinny trousers and a belt or with a pair of boyfriend jeans for a beachy, relaxed look.
