Bring out your killer instinct in the KILLER WHALE DRESS!
Need a dress to give you a little more backbone and courage? This is it!
Deep-black cotton base with appliqué and stitching in white. This is not a print! This is all done on the sewing machine! Oh yeah!
Where did the idea come from?
My husband Mike was watching “Whale Wars”, a reality TV show about the hard-core activists that brave the arctic trying to disarm illegal whaling ships. He said I should make a whale dress. So here it is.
Tunic or dress you decide…also depends how tall you are and how much leg you like to show. Either way, it will always work with leggings or skinny jeans.
Sizes XS-S-M-L $165 (fair price for a truly unique piece of textile art!)
Surprisingly versatile, I have been getting a lot of wear from my banana yellow skinny jeans. Also available in pink (so cute!) and turquoise (I admit, I got the turquoise ones too) and seafoam (want!)
Combine them with the “Romantic” blouse for the look I am wearing above. Romantic blouse comes in various prints: red paisley, hummingbirds (above), feather mandala, oversize floral, and indigo shibori.
Here I am (at the end of a long rainy day…) in my new favourite top: The Peace tunic in coral. I liked the material when I purchased it, but wearing it for a few days…now I love it! It got a lot softer and almost feels like well loved linen. The embellishments in the coral tunic are tone-on-tone coral petals.
This is the part we do in the studio. We take the cut pattern pieces and pin little mini petals (that are all hand cut) into position. Then we sew them down with a decorative stitch creating a pretty ivy pattern.
Below is the cutting table covered with beautiful tiny petals and piles of the prettiest scraps.
Each set is hand cut, pinned and stitched. Each one is a little different making it true craft.
The colour combination for the white blouse is pink, red and green. It turned out soo pretty, but you’ll have to come to the boutique to see the final product.
Here I am proudly modelling my new banana yellow jeans by Hudson.
They make me happy now eventhough I know I am pushing it with the weather. It is still a bit early to be sporting pastel bottoms (but they are so comfortable and stretchy!!!)
They are by Hudson jeans and they also come in aqua, turquoise and pink.
I made my mother try them on because she kept telling me “they are only for young people”, and “I will look ridiculous in such tight pants”. I gave her one size larger than I would put on someone who wants them sexy. They made her look great! (and now she can’t decide which colour she wants). I am pretty sure she will opt for the aqua. Once she had them on, she was pleasantly surprised by how well they fit and how comfortable they were at the waist. You see, this is not a low rise fashion pant. These are high rise premium denim jeans…they just happen to be available in great colours. You will be seeing a lot of colourful pants in stores this Spring. Take the plunge and try them on! Just go for it!
Ohh this dress is so so pretty. Look, it made me dance around in the alley.
It is from our latest shipment of Ivko goodies.
The bibi (by MonBibi) is $35.50 and the wristies (made in the KL studio) are $39.00. More wristies below.
This is my new “Lune” blazer. It matches many of my Fall collection skirts and pants. It comes in black with white stitching, bright cherry red, soft textured denim, kaki with turquoise and heathered pink. Here I am wearing the navy with red stitching and the new Ivko bubble mini.
