A long trip can be so inspirational! I just returned from three weeks in Paris and Venice.
I had to peek in every shop window to see the latest fashion trends and the new Fall colors. Everywhere I went little mental notes and sweeping design ideas filled my head and were etched on cafe napkins, the backs of ticket stubs and bits of scrap paper.
My LilyandEbony sewing studio is full of bright new fabrics with wonderful textures and prints. Vintage buttons and laces from Paris brocantes made their way home with me.
I have created some fabulous Winter Holiday Styles for your little ones, my best boutique customers. The first set is a pink flowing satin skirt and halter top with vintage lace inset.
