introducing: the picnic dress

what makes the perfect transition dress?
a dress with sleeves.
now with sandals and later with boots.
introducing the picnic dress.
who doesn't want to go on a picnic wearing this dress? i do. yes, it is a silk dress and yes, you'll be sitting on a blanket {on the grass} with your beau. isn't that what living is about? wearing a fancy dress during the day and picnicking with your grandmothers china? life is far too short for paper plates and gym clothes out side of the gym. {if you ask me}

here was the ruff draft.

the hem too long, the the sleeves too short. neckline not quite right. we need contrast but not a sash. insert yellow waist band s'il vous plait.
this is what its like: the making of the dress while we are still perfecting the pattern. we make a sample. and then snip, nip, cut and alter until at last it "fits" perfectly.

voici que vous allez! jolie robe!

i am very excited about the new picnic dress.
and i hope you are too.
available in an array of fall fabrics to suit your fancy very very soon.

stay tuned.


  1. LOVE it! Gorgeous fabric, flattering cut, perfect for transition months :)
