designer's block!

I'm having a bad case of designers block for my spring line. It's time to put away the wool and heavy fabrics and get to work on spring clothing. It's just that this time of year I have a hard time believing it will actually be spring and summer again. What do YOU plan on wearing this spring and summer? What kind of designs would you like to see?

I am excited to announce that i'll be taking part in this year's beCAUSE show. It's a show where each artist donates a percentage of their proceeds toward a certain charity or foundation. This year I chose Pete's Greens after their devastating loss in the barn fire. Come support some local artists and tons of great causes!

Also in the works, I am moving. Again. I know, I know. I just moved 6 months ago. While I do love it out here for some reasons and love my roommate(s) but it's just too far. An hour round trip driving to and fro the post office isn't helping me with time management and I just can't deal with this slow satellite internet. It takes 10X as long to get things done and some things I can't get done. I have to wait until we go on our weekly dates to the laundromat to use their awesome high speed internet.

organic cotton is in!

johnson gal dress $120. organic cotton and local wool

One of my new years resolutions was to start a line using organic cotton. Well, it came and I made a few tops(and a skirt!) I have also been using some local wool made down the road at Johnson Woolen Mills right here in Vermont.

You can also find other dresses, skirts and even legwarmers in my etsy shop here.
