I love this linen dress.  It is made from knit linen, so it won’t wrinkle and crinkle the way linen often does.  It comes in raspberry and black as well.  The hem is knitted with a beautiful lacy pattern and the tone on tone screen printing adds a touch of wallpaper whimsey.

The dress below was sold out all over North America and at the last minute, I got a shipment of them!  Yay!  It think it is just gorgeous.  Made from fine mercerized cotton, it is soft, comfortable and cut just right to flatter the body nicely.  The waist is a little bit loose and a reversible belt can be added, but I wear mine without.

Katrin Leblond Spring Dress and Ivko cardigan

This is my feather mandala dress.  I feel like it has magical powers and is charged with the purpose of making women feel beautiful and powerful.  But that is another story…. I wanted to show you how incredible it looks with this light brown Ivko cardigan.  It is gorgeous.  They were made to be together!  I always love it when two designers’ collections go so well together.  I have always felt that Ivko sweaters were designed for my store.  They complement my clothes so perfectly.

That being said, the Spring collections are in the store now!  Ivko, KL, Arianne, Metamorphose, Yoga jeans and Ayala Bar.

If you want to shop for any of these brands, check out our online store.  Shop here!

Add this one to your pile of beloved Ivko sweaters just because you can.

It is so very affordable!  $190 in brown, blue or black.

The collar folds up or opens like a blazer with beautiful enamel buttons on one side.  A small jewel detail with decorative chain can be easily removed if it is not your thing.  Made form 100% wool, this sweater is warm, joyful and practical.

 

The blue sweater below with orange details is both casual and bright.  Pair it with jeans or rust colored cords and you have Fall in your back pocket!

Below is the black combo, the classiest in my opinion.  I have two matching skirts that it can be worn with, one mini and one knee-length.  It makes a nice little business suit when matched together.

$190 (I know, can you believe it??? An Ivko sweater for only $190!!!)  sizes: 36-44

Where are you going?  Ivko is in the store now!  And also available online at http://store.katrinleblond.com/

This is my number 1 pick for Fall 2013 IVKO.  It is casual, elegant and the wool is so thin and soft, it’s like magic warmth on your skin!

The button is carved and adds a beautiful touch.  No broach necessary!

The back has a center panel of  jacquard patterns that turn into a reverse-box pleat.

There is a small row of beautiful enamel buttons that go all the way down the front opening.

$270, sizes 36-44

This project started with a phone call.  Can I make a mermaid dress for a graduation in New Jersey?  Sure.

Grace had been a client last summer. We met at my boutique when she purchased a long black dress with a pink flower print that I designed.  She told me she would be graduating in the study of Fish oils and omega-6.  Wow!  What we needed was a fish dress, not a mermaid costume.  I was very concerned that we make her a dress she could wear again to other occasions.

I started by researching images and colours for Fish oils.

I wanted to build a colour palette around a small piece of “fish scale” fabric that I had designed 10 years ago while working as a textile designer for Tricots Liesse. I guess I saved it for a special occasion like this.

I was able to make a pair of long opera sleeves, so the dress would be sleeveless and floor length.

 Below you can see the sleeves and the fabric choices, as well as some small silver fish I made out of silk, but didn’t use for the final dress.

I cut silk chiffon into bias strips and notched them.  This was the water.  On the final dress I distressed the chiffon slightly with a spray bottle of water and frayed the edges a bit.

I found three little green glass fish beads!  Yoohoo!  Combined with hours of setting Svarovsky crystals, we have ourselves a gala dress!

Here’s a crafty project for you.

It requires a field trip to the forest with some plastic bags and a shovel.  Depending on how long you want your moss to live, try to take as much topsoil as possible when you are collecting the moss.  It is fun to collect a variety of different colours and textures so that you can have fun building a little landscape when you plant them.

If you don’t feel like building a custom moss box, you can also arrange your moss on a plate, a platter or a glass bowl that will also show the soil below.  If you do go with a wooden container, you will need to line the box with plastic.  It is best to use the heavy duty garbage bags.

Moss likes moisture.  Buy yourself a spray mister so that you can gently mist your moss every day (as many times as you can remember to!)

Embellish with Candles, Christmas decorations or …pets!

Tomorrow is the last day to see the Jean Paul Gaultier show at the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts.

Below is a dress that must have been crazy to sew.  The stripes are lined up on the diagonal, but the seams are going in the opposite direction also on a diagonal.  Tartan is not a fabric I would ever design with, but I admire people who do and do it well.  We have a new designer in the store called OcuniD (phonetically Aucune Idee) who has made his whole Fall collection of party dresses in tartan.  They are great.  I got one.

And this is the but of one of Jean Paul Gaultier’s muscle leotards.  He designed the fabric and you can see the top of thigh high boots that go with the outfit.  What cracks me up is the anatomical heart he placed on the right butt cheek.

I love JPG!
