Summer inside & out


A long, challenging (because of all the humans here), loud, interrupted, rainy, busy day of work in the studio left me with these lovely slips and camisoles. (Mailing list subscribers will hear more about this tomorrow! The sewing, that is, not the chaos. Who would subscribe to that? Well if you're reading this then I guess you would.)


A simple walk out the front door at the end of day left me with even more beauty.

Of the two endeavors, walking outside was lots easier.

Just sayin. Anna
(who apologizes for the recent summer-length posts....I'll get wordier here soon, then you'll be sorry.)


  1. Ok - I was JUST reading about a post on bias makers and trying to decide if I should get one. This beautiful just made that choice easy!

  2. Well now I've had to add to the mailing list! love the idea of voile camisoles, what a lovely idea. I could wear one while lounging under my voile quilt (when I finally get round to the hand piecing I have lined up for it)

  3. Hi Anna Maria,
    nice to be first, I did a dress alike last year for my daughter, she likes it so much, now that it´s raelly hot here in Germany.... I love your blog

  4. Very cute. Love those colourful straps! And we all know those chaotic days I guess. Please do share. Somehow reading about other people's chaos, especially when the other person is someone you think is rather awesome, can make one's own choas seem easier to accept :-D

  5. Your summer chaos I can only imagine. I'm surprised you can even FIND the studio with all those little bodies... but both images are so beautiful!

  6. Those camisoles are lovely! They look so soft and luxurious to slip on into. Hope you're finding a little more peace in your day.

  7. i also had to add myself to the mailing list! I have to tell you, as this is my first time commenting, that your socialite dress is BY FAR my favorite pattern. it's been perfect for both winter (tights and a turtleneck!) and summer (i'm wearing it right now!) Thanks for making such simple and elegant patterns!

  8. Loving those! I've been wondering what the solid voiles look like -except for toffee, I've seen that in person- and now I know what they look like!

    I LOVE these btw, they are gorgeous! I now have ideas.... heh heh heh.

  9. Can't wait to hear more about those pretty slips/camisoles. They look just gorgeous! As did the sky!

  10. Very pretty. What lucky girls. I love seeing shots of the sky. We had a big rainbow the other day, it whole a whole arch too. It was really beautiful.

  11. Where is the sign up for the mailing list?

  12. hark- to the right there, under the SHOP icon. heres a link:

  13. Beautiful colors. As for the chaos--well take it from a Nana--one day your house will be so quiet and you will miss all that chaos. Enjoy all that noise.

  14. These camisoles are so lovely. I never leave the house without wearing one - adore them! Can't wait to hear more about them. I love the mix of the solids with the lil folks straps. And those colors in the sunset are just stunning, enough to just stop you in your tracks.

  15. Those are so so sweet. And can i just say how much I love reading the titles your photos? They are always, well, so good. See, i can't even think of a good adjective to describe it! But at least I know really good things when I see them, and as always, I love all the really good things you do! And here's to a house full of lots of little loud humans...oh dear!

  16. i love how you did the binding/straps & the colors look amazing!

  17. they are beautiful, but I really hate to iron things like that!!!

  18. Like the colours! Nice :)

  19. Hi - Do you use a bias tape maker? All your bias looks just right and ohhh- you made so many camisoles - so that is sooo much bias tape - if so what brand and model can you recommend?
