summer

Ah, it's been such a busy past month, with no time to post! I've been hard at work on the Bluefly collection, which should be launching at the end of the month (fingers crossed that nothing else can go wrong and hold it up at this point). I think every possible production problem that could have happened has already, but every time I say that a new crisis or fabric shortage pops up. Yikes! 

It was my first hand at doing production, and it has been quite a valuable learning experience. Next time will go much more smoothly! Still, even with the frustrations, it's so nice to be able to hire someone else to make my clothes and to do it here domestically in New York so I can check up on everything and smooth out the kinks. It sure beats staying up all hours of the night trying to do everything myself!

Additionally, I have a few things currently on my Etsy page available and a dress on my website, with hopefully more to come soon! I'm ridding myself of some past samples on Etsy every now and then for ridiculously cheap, too.

Yesterday, marked one year from when I flew out to start filming the show. It's insane how fast this past year flew by! It seems like it was literally just weeks ago.

I'm holding my breath for the blue fly collection! I wonder if there are obstacles that happen to everybody... it's hard to give up that control of making something yourself, but it's absolutely necessary.

I love the blue dress, looks good on the larger model too! I particularly like what you did with the side draping overlays on the skirt. The zipper scares me but looks really awesome and presents a subtle "naughty" element to an playfully elegant cocktail dress. Oh and did I mention that's one of my favorite colors?
