SUNFLOWERS IN WINTER…
We just wanted to share with you some of the photos we took for the “Sunny Sunflower Dress” from the “Gossamery Gardens”collection.
To learn all about this dress in detail, please click HERE. This style of dress is going to be available in other colors and prints, so if you aren’t particularly fond of sunflowers, there will be other choices available. We will be posting a poll to our Instagram stories soon, so be on the lookout for that. We would love to know what colors you think we should select. Your feedback is greatly appreciated.
We were lucky, and had rather warm weather when we were shooting these photos. It would have been nice to be able to shoot photos in a sunflower field, but alas, it isn’t summer yet. I wanted to get this dress made, and up in the shop, so that those who wish to purchase one, can enjoy it in summer!
We hope you enjoyed our photos here, as much as we enjoyed taking them. Make sure to follow our Instagram account, so you can voice your opinion in our Instagram stories poll!
Until next time…

Black Velvet in the Rain….
“The three great elemental sounds in nature are the sound of rain, the sound of wind in a primeval wood, and the sound of outer ocean on a beach.”-Henry Beston
Handmade black velvet duster…perfect for the free spirited woman
There is nothing like a good rainy day sky on the day of a photo shoot. The cloud cover acts as a giant soft box, gently diffusing the sunlight, which makes for beautiful smooth and glowing skin. We were lucky on the day of this shoot, as the weather was perfectly suited for what we wanted to create. Wearing black velvet in the rain…it’s nothing short of magical.
The design for this black velvet duster is actually a test sample of something I want to possibly add to our online shop inventory. This particular duster is made from a stretch velvet. It was not the easiest fabric to sew with…it is quite tricky. It constantly wants to shift and slip…. It’s like it has a mind of its own.
After working with it on this design, I have found that I would like to add the corseting to the front as well as the back. I would also like to try making this in a non stretch velvet, and possibly a cotton, rayon, or silk fabric as well. What would you like to see? Would you wear a garment like this? Vote below and let us know!

The “Free Spirit” Wrap blouse
About the “Free Spirit Wrap Blouse”
We all have a favorite garment in our wardrobe that makes us feel our best. When we put it on, we are overcome with a sense of well being, and elation. Perhaps it is the way this particular garment drapes, or the way in which it hugs our curves? Or maybe it is the color or pattern that really brings out the light in our eyes? No matter what the details are that make this piece so special to us, there is one thing for certain…this clothing item allows us to be ourselves. We allow our inner light to shine through, becoming a “free spirit.”
The free Spirit wrap blouse is one of these types of garments. It drapes beautifully on the body, and creates curves exactly where it is supposed to. You can wear it alone, or layer it with a camisole. Wrap style blouses are very flattering, and look amazing on women of all shapes and sizes.
The free Spirit blouse pictured here will be a regular staple garment in all of our collections. With passing seasons, we will add more colors, and shapes of sleeves, and lengths.
We would love to know what colors, lengths and styles of sleeves you would like to see our wrap blouse in. As an important member of our community, we care about you, and value your opinion. Please take a moment to vote below, and let your voice be heard. Your ideas and thoughts are greatly appreciated, and we would love to turn them into reality. This is your place to shine.
