Hello, Blog! Remember me?

Wow. In utter shame do I notice that my last posting was in April. I can recall sitting on my bed at my last house, finishing up the text and pushing the Publish Post button... and it really doesn't seem that long ago. It's a sufficient example of how ridiculous this entire year has been, and I do mean to detail the latest wild and crazy adventures of the Traveling St. Lawrence Show... but not today. Ugh.

Instead, I'll tell you about the new Sheath Dresses! As the crippling heat began to roll over Western Washington early this summer (we're talking, you know, upper 70's) I frantically tried to piece together a new summer dress design that could fit a range of sizes easily, and would be comfortable on the hot days. I wanted to depart from the babydoll design of last year, which was cute enough, but imprecise and difficult to fit to larger sizes. Ruffles and appliques have also been on my mind, and this design has been a great canvas for such details. Hope you like them!
