    had i not read the article i would say the colours make it more drab than it is... it does have an old-fashioned southern vibe. something you'd see in antiques roadshow

    ..something you grow to like

    thanks for the thread ^

    Not really my cup of tea but I really respect what she's doing with her business.

    I really like the length of most of the dresses - just below the knee.
    It's very summery but in a layered, Victorian-esque way. I love it.

    I like the white coat ... and a couple of the skirts. I continue to wish she were a bit more connected to mainstream fashion.

    why do you say that... ^

    ..also disturbs me a little, the dark reds, slate blues beiges browns etc and floral cutwork etc. are just like what you see in the linen departments of huge stores like wal-mart or hudson's bay company. maybe even them have started to jump on the trends --been a long time since i went to see if the styles are still the same in those kinds of stores


    the jersey dress with striped circle skirt is oddly appealing to me.. :mellow: the red haired model really suits this look very well. i also like the blue belted ensemble with pencil skirt

    Still, I wish it took organic clothing a little further. I've seen tied wrap tops and knee-lengths floral prints skirts done so many times by organic lines in Vancouver.

    ^yeah i agree...it's a little too granola. i wish these talents would kind of stick their necks out a bit more and play...like others do when they recycle.

    I'm sure in person the handwork looks nothing like Wal-mart ... but I wish her stuff were more connected to fashion because I find it difficult to fit it into a wardrobe. The colors in the past anyway have been completely different from what everyone else is doing ... I buy things for the house because of the beautiful handwork, but to wear, they need to offer more than that ...

    Take the shoes away and I'm sure this could be a stylish and conservative new dress-style!
