The Lady in Gray

I love wearing gray. It is one of my favorite colors in my wardrobe. I love charcoal, silver, and pale gray. I think of gray as a sophisticated color, like black or white, which are also part of my wardrobe's color palette.

When I found this Vogue DKNY pattern, I was thrilled to find a wool fabric in charcoal. I thought I would be able to create a chic and comfortable dress. I was right.


I love my new dress. I adore the pleats on the bodice and waistline. I also love the way the dress drapes my figure. This is a wonderful addition to my Winter wardrobe.

















A little while ago, I found this lovely slate gray lace in the fabric store. The moment I saw it, I knew I wanted to design a sleeveless blouse. I was inspired by the dress materials and designs used in the 1920's. To keep the design airy and feminine, I decided to line the lace with black chiffon.

The Esme Blouse




I love the lightness and feminine lines of this blouse.


I love the fact I was able to create a lovely and fun blouse from chiffon, lace, and velvet ribbon.
