Bord De La Mer Dress

I am pleased to introduce to you all to my latest creation the "Bord De La mer" dress a Sailor inspired 8 gored flared mini dress made of nice light White and Lilac Seersucker Vintage Cotton fabric with a lace cutout at the back and self fabric buttons up the front. Yesterday I took it out for a stroll in Montreal's old port, it was the perfect setting I think, it almost looks like Paris! 
I was inspired by a vintage photograph I found and gave it a modern fit, it hugs and fits all the right places.
This dress is now available in my shop here:
YeYe Shop

p.s. I just sold this lovely dress and I promise to make more for next weekend, thank you double bubble you just made my day :) Thank you for supporting hand made.

Q & A with Citizen Vintage

Last weekend Lara of Citizen vintage came over to my place to take some pictures of my place and to chat about what inspires me and what I have been up to. I had a great time hanging with her showing her my vintage collection and many projects I have been working on.  I am so thankful the Citizen vintage ladies asked me to do this Q&A for there Tumblr blog here:

I have to say that Lara is quite the amazing photographer and the sweetest girl you will ever meet!
If you haven't yet and you live in the Montreal area you must make a stop at the Citizen Vintage shop on 5330 St. Laurent Boulevard

This is what I've been working on lately...

It has been a pretty busy and successful weekend in these parts, I just finished sewing up my very first dress made of vintage seersucker fabric and lace. This design was in the back of my to do rack and finally I built up the guts to actually finish it and put it out there for all to see. This dress will be in my Etsy shop later this week it is a size small/medium waist 27" bust 36" if any body is interested  ;) I call this dress the "Bord de la mer" dress, inspired by a vintage picture I found somewhere with a modern silhouette that fits to perfection and a lovely lace cutout detail at the back.

I also got around to making faux leather collars, I am very happy with the way they look, they are so chic and slick I find. They are available in Jet Black, Metallic Mauve and Metallic Taupe. 

The collars are now available in my shop here:

Red, black and grey

I am still loving the heat wave here in Montreal and taking walks to my favorite new gelato place in my neighborhood. You can get a little tub with 3 different flavors, I took Pistachio, creme brûlée and blueberry so good!

The inspiration behind this outfit is from a girl I saw walking down Queen street West in Toronto on my last road trip. She paired a Lacoste polo with a simple black jersey dress, I love the simplicity of this look and how chic it looks at the same time. I have quite the little collection of Lacoste polos thanks to Stéphane. I had no idea before how to style them up a little more then just with jeans or a skirt, oh! and this was the perfect outfit to showcase this red silk Dupion scrunchie I made myself, it's funny to think that these funny little things are making a come back. Maybe I should whip up a few and sell them, who knows!

I was wearing:

-Vintage Lacoste red and white stripped polo, gift from Stéphane
-Black dress from H&M
- Vintage straw hat
- Brown leather tassel purse borrowed from YeYe Vintage Boutique
-White socks from H&M
-Grey oxford shoes by Everything all we ever wanted
-Grey shoe laces by AA
-Vintage specs from Courage my love in Toronto
