Classic Banana Republic

I am totally in love with classic Banana Republic Catalogs. Everything in them is just so my style.

This is perfect, my new favorite thing is houndstooth. I have started making a line of scarves that I call the Ascot Scarf.  My photo-type has tan and black houndstooth wool on one side and black velvet on the other. It has very clean and classic lines, is reversible and looks great dressed up with your favorite vintage pin.

I'll get some pictures posted as soon as I can get a photo shoot set up. Coordinating time with my models is not always easy.

Leaf Pin


Just wanted to share an new creation. The leaf pin was inspired by the leaves on the wooden button. I found a couple of leaf shapes that I had already cut out and started stitching them together. The light green is from a felted sweater and the dark green is from a wool suit coat.

As I was stitching the light green leaf onto the dark green one I started to get a curved shape. Instead of trying to flatten it I went with it. It had such a lovely organic feel.

I stitched the pin back to a backing fabric and got even more of a curve as I attached the backing. I hope you can see how much movement the leaf has from these photos.

Thanks for stopping by
