This past summer I made my first piece of custom clothing, for someone other than myself…for my amazing sister-in-law. She is very fashionable and loves to wear creative and unique clothes. This made it really fun to play around with different designs and styles. The final product is this zipper down shirt. Thank you Amanda for being my guinea pig!

Yesterday was a beautiful day on the Vineyard, crystal clear with a slight chill in the air. We spent the afternoon in Chilmark at a friend’s party and then documented my latest piece on their gorgeous property. My husband did an incredible job capturing the lighting, the setting, and my jacket.

I am 23 weeks pregnant and was in need of a comfortable yet stylish jacket that could be worn with my expanding belly yet wearable post pregnancy as well. Last week I finished designing and sewing my first piece of maternity wear.

Wool jacket with lining.

The jacket went perfectly with the sterling silver bracelet I made this summer.

I knitted a soft wool scarf to finish off the look for a chilly day.
