Working on the Fall line

Projects! Last weekend was the weekend of projects... first was the couch... this couch was left by the old tenants, it was her grandmothers and I thought that it was such a modern, beautiful shape, I had to give it some tlc and reupholster it... so here it is before

and after!

I finally decided to update our bedroom.. unfortunately I didn't take a before pic, but it used to be this awful bubble gum pink... not my thing. So, I painted it a cozy sage green, added some of my favorite Etsy prints to the wall, and voila! It's magical.. I never want to leave.

Aside from all the redecorating, we have definitely been busy around the studio these days as well...working super hard trying to get the fall line completed AND photographed by the end of June... yikes.
Here is a sneak peak at some of the new stuff for fall...

The Fontaine Jacket
I had a few comments about the Fontaine Jacket made into a raincoat... I think I might just try it... yellow maybe? Or red!
Anyways... the new pant, which I normally don't do well with pants, but I'm pretty happy with these ones, they are a wide legged pant, I'm getting into the wide leg again I think... and they have a wide, elastic waistband,

The Leonard Pant
And the third of ten completed items... the Coloniale Cardigan

The fabric is a super soft, cotton knit. I love it. I may have to keep the sample for myself :)

In other news... I'm very sad that we never made it to Renegade. It just wasn't working out with the paperwork. Selling textiles over the border is a lot harder than I thought it would be.

Ok, coffee on the porch time... its a lovely day out there.



  1. The Fontaine Jacket is, love, love it! You are so talented--I love checking your Etsy shop to see what you have come up with lately. I am sorry it didn't work out for Renegade. I was looking forward to stopping by your booth and splurging on something, but then didn't make it there myself because of family events. Take care!! Kristien

  2. First, that couch looks A-MAZING! I love it! I want it. Second, I am loving each and every single item in your etsy shop. How come you live in Mtl and not selling in any boutique here?? You are incredibly talented!
