la matrice de grille

"la matrice de grille" (grid array) is a one-of a kind. The front of the scoop neck bodice and cap sleeves are made from a vintage printed silk scarf that i found at "the bins" (the goodwill of goodwills) in Portland. The back of the bodice is fine, navy blue, sheer, silk chiffon, and has a full zip. The waist trim and fabric covered buttons are a charteuse silk dupioni. ( i love that stuff, it's like cutting through butter). The pleated skirt is a medium/heavy weight grey heather wool. Very warm and it adds substantial weight to the silk and chiffon bodice. The bodice is fully lined in a soft cream felt. I shed a little tear when this one was sold.

"La Reine des Ceours" dress. One of my favorite designs that can transition nicely from a late summer staple to a fun fall frock. Just pair it with a longsleeve shirt and warm knit leggings underneath.
