In my collection fabrics, I picked up 8 yards of this gorgeous Raspberry colored embroidered lace without knowing exactly what I was going to do with it. I toyed with the idea of making several high-waisted knicker sets with matching bras, a typical babydoll style, etc but these ideas never seemed quite right for this lace. It wasn't until I came across this amazing vintage 1940's Dressing Gown Pattern that I just knew I had to use the entire 8 yards to make this. It came out gorgeous - wide 40's sleeve, pointed lapel collars, waist tie to cinch in at the tiny spot, floor length sheer, naughty lacy goodness. You won't get to see what it looks like on until I shoot the collection in its entirety but my oh my, it is a lovely piece! xx.L


Where in the heck have I been? In an insane,  I repeat, absolutely insane sewing cave for custom orders. The first weeks of February were spent trying to balance working on pieces for my new collection, Client custom orders & of course my Vegas wardrobe. This all took an insane turn toward Client orders only as there was just too many (happily) to keep up with! I've got everybody ready for Vegas, everybody ready for their trip to London, Tucson, Los Angeles, Stage performances, etc and phew! I am exhausted! And I've missed you all!

I have so many lovely things to share with you. Its mighty crazy where this year has taken me already and I am so ready. Sewing needle & scissors in hand, tight wiggle skirt, tight sweater - I'm READY! xx.L
