I‘m getting ready to pack up the Old West Pavilion, all the new gowns and hats for sale, and leaving Wednesday with Angus for some time at our #11. If I didn’t love it out there, it would just be another set of house chores but I tend to have love affairs with my houses…especially when they’re 120 years old.
Nine days from cut to finish this blush silk satin gown…will I be sewing on the plane? Ha! You know I will. 🙂
Sitting on the floor in the “Ooh-La-La” sewing parlor patiently hand stitching each of these stripey silk pleats. Where’s Spring? This old house is Brrrrrr cold!
Quiet breakfast in the modern world, turning the clock back 120 years tomorrow, so I’m savoring this moment! I’m dreading all the work that I need to finish this week at No. 11, but old houses need love, too.
Yes, contrary to popular belief, we actually spend most of our time in a Mid-Century Modern house.
Spring has sprung here at the atelier and we’re going into full production mode on our Spring designs. Thanks to a wet winter, the yard is a riot of color and it hasn’t stopped yet. Stay tuned for more!
