Another great unique dress which looks very minimalistic but does great work on the body ist this new baby. All rayon, light cream, peach and black colours, with a metal zipper on the side and a beautiful cascade peplum!
Great coral red colour rayon gabardine dress with a little mid riff peekaboo! Elegant and comfy raglan sleeves with little hooks to close the narrow sleeves at the end.
Metall zipper on the side and self made crochet lurex silver gold decorations…
Oh how I love these fabric tubes!!! It looks so vintage and a lot of beautiful applications are possible! Also available on my website: loop dress

Fall has come finally to wear coats, corduroy and bolero’s…here’s a preview of my collection. Enjoy!
As a half frenchy I like to try to put some 40s era ‘self made’ idea into the items. But it’s hard not to cross the edge of making it a too ‘poor’ or ‘dusty grandma-ish’ item. I like a good balance of elegance, sporty, feminin and a note of this make and mend flair of that time. That’s one of the many reasons I like the 40s style so much.

…after a few years research about 1940s handpainting, I started first with a tiger blouse
then the panther blouse followed. After this, I could ´stand on my own´ and create different styles/themes which I worked with. It is not easy to find good fabrics with a very smooth surface to paint on. I always use rayon in different weights.
Then I made special blouses for costumers…

However it makes a lot of fun to create painted blouses for dear customers, I have to be careful. I don’t like too much of anything. One of my important rules. So, I try to stop painting on blouses in this kind of style for a while.
