New on Etsy!! Jenine Floral Belted Dress

Just finished this dress and it is now on Etsy! Another fabric that I absolutely love. This is made out of 100% cotton with printed floral pattern arranged in circles ANDDDD lilac floral embroideries. Seems like the pieces that I made in the past two weeks are getting more and more girly. Hopefully the customers on Etsy would appreciate them. I got some custom pieces that I need to start but maybe I can squeeze in a new men's creation. Still meaning to make that shrunken blazer for myself.

New on Etsy!! Organic Cotton Pleated Skirt with Studded Flaps

Just finished making this skirt today and it is now on Etsy for sale! This is my very first eco friendly garment and I can't wait to make more! It feels awesome to be using eco friendly fabrics!

This pleated skirt is eco friendly, made out of organic cotton. There are two studded flaps, one on each side. This skirt is feminine with an edge! It sits at the waist and finishes above the knees. Contour waistband allows a greater fit around the waist, and the placements of the pleats have been carefully thought out. Invisible zipper and bar hooks are used for closure. The waistband seam and hem are bias taped for a clean finish.

Custom Item - Rory Jacket

My brilliant hair dresser, Yumiko, asked me to make a jacket for her husband last Christmas. I was so flattered when she asked me to do it. To me, it is a HUGE compliment when people ask me to design and make something specifically for them. I love watching their reactions when they first see the sketch and first see the final product. Those moments are simply priceless!

The main feature of the jacket is its reversibility! On one side, it looks like a blazer with interesting top-stitching detail, but on the reversed side, it has contrast check pockets, covered buttons, and bias bound seams. It is made out of cotton twill, and wool check contrast fabric. Yumiko told me that Rory really likes hidden details so I thought this would be a great jacket for him. Turned out that the reversed side was a bit too much for him, but he still appreciates all of the details.

New on Etsy!! Floral Cotton Shift Dress & Circle Cut Out Tank

It has been a busy busy weekend for me! Etsy slowed down dramatically the past 2- 3 weeks and I have been trying to figure out what happened exactly!? After looking through my shops over and over, I realized that a large percentage of my shop consist of Fall/ Winter clothing, and not very much of the Spring/Summer garments- BIG MISTAKE! Stores typically start carrying new Cruise/ Resort Collections in December, and new Spring arrivals by mid to end of January. I really should've started making new Spring pieces by the end of January but for some reason I had let it slipped my mind. Anyhow, I went searching for new fabrics this week, pattern drafted, and sewed up these new pieces this weekend, and they are now on Etsy. Hope these new pieces will generate sales soon!

Circle Cut Out Tank

This tank is perfect for Spring and Summer. It is super cute, unique, and fun. The fabric is made out of cut out cotton with tulle backing. I have finished the armholes and neckline with bias tape for a cleaner and sharper look. It also features curved hem at front and back. The elastic at the back gives a bit of edge and allows the wearer to slip it on easier. Wear it on its own, layer it with a colorful tank, or over a bikini.

Floral Cotton Shift Dress

I kept the design of this shift dress fairly simple and classic because the fabric itself is just so beautiful! It is textured with a floral pattern. The seams inside have been bias bound for a clean, sharp finish. It finishes above the knees and looks great with a pair of flats, sandals, or heels. This dress is timeless, very comfortable and easy to wear.
