Hello, friends! I hope you had a good week. We’ve been packing, organizing, and cleaning in preparation for our move to Madrid, and we’re nearly done! Last weekend Todd and I put all sorts of things into storage to get our apartment ready for my sister and brother-in-law to move in, and on Tuesday we did a massive clean-up of the studio and got rid of eight years of accumulated clutter from photo shoots, trade shows, etc. I was shocked at how much stuff we were able to discard. It felt really good, and now there’s lots of space in the studio for our friend Chirstopher, a.k.a. The Tattooed Quilter, who is taking over the space while we’re away.
We also sent the fall patterns off to the printer this week, so it really feeling like things are wrapping up.
Next week I’m planning to do all sorts of New York-centric things with S and a couple of her friends–our last hurrah to the city–and the week after that we go on our big biennial vacation with my family. This year we’re headed to Colorado and have lots of fun adventures planned during our stay. We leave for Madrid two days after we get back from that trip. It’s been a crazy summer. But it’s been exciting!
Inspiration for a sweet Oliver + S Hide-and-Seek Dress. (Or a Cinema Dress for yourself if you’re so inclined. The Cinema Dress will be available as a paper pattern soon, for those of you who prefer paper!)
Love this silhouette, and the simple graphic nature of the windowpane checks on the skirt with the rest of the outfit.
Lovely colors. Are you a fan of fresh figs?

Fantastic smocking! I love how her hair mirrors the texture of the the smocking itself.
What a little cutie in her Sunday Brunch Jacket and all polka dotted outfit.
