Learning // In My Studio

It's been quite a while since I've shared some of my handmade garments with you, and it's time that I do.  Today in my studio, I'm working on a clean and simple slip dress that will fill a very obvious void in my wardrobe.  I chose a beautiful sandwashed silk for my textile and the way it flows.... is magic. Here's today's progress:

Only a few more steps, but they'll have to wait until tomorrow.  I'm hoping to share many more projects with you, both as an effort to create more by hand and to challenge myself to show my process, and how it can be almost as beautiful as the finished result.
