One of my favorite jewelers also makes clothing and is having a fashion show this Saturday. I, myself will not be in the show, but am debuting my latest creation to attend. (Photo credits: Downeast Magazine and Decontie + Brown)

Notice the princess seam detailing! No more boxy shirts for me!

Another dream in it’s infancy.

Dippermouth feature

This week I’m featuring my friend Rose’s indie clothing business. She also dyes and prints the fabric she sews with! She is currently working on developing an online presence. I bought my pieces when she was a vender (for the first time)at a local fair: the Common Ground Country Fair in Unity , Maine.

The jacket should be the first to highlight, what I would call her signature piece. I tried on the smallest size she had there and it was slightly too big in areas, she then assured me she had a smaller one at home she would finish and bring the next day. Her mother told me that evening she went home and started a whole new one and made the necessary adjustments to fit me just right. Took her most of the night! Included in the outfit are my own pants (“jeggings” if you must), my own hand-knit socks, Bryr clogs (“Millie” high heeled lace up clog with kilt in burgundy), www.bryrstudio.com and TiroTiro earrings (mini Luo).

Same style shirt in cotton, with tree print, and dyed with plant dye. Bryr’s “Abilene” high heeled moto boot, a discontinued style from when she was in Spain. One pair of Decontie and Brown earrings, and one pair of Jennifer Nielsen earrings.
