The smell of freshly dried lavender is heavenly!
We ordered this bunch recently from Purple Haze Lavender
, in Sequim (say “skwim”) Washington. The lavender bush at our new studio isn’t big enough yet to start producing, so we thought we’d try some from this well-known growing region. It’s apparently one of the best places in the world for lavender (its climate is similar to that of southern France), and wow, is this lavender gorgeous! It has big, plump heads and really long stalks. (Melinda made me pose with the lavender to show you just how long they are!)
Of course, if you order a dress from us, you’ll get to smell it for yourself — we package each of our dresses with a sprig to keep it fresh and lovely during its journey to you. (And don’t worry, we’ll trim the stalk! =)
Now, off to work on the new labels… launch is only a week and a half away!
That about sums it up! We’ll release our latest collection, “Voyages,” on September 11th. That’s just over two weeks away — so mark your calendars and start getting excited!
Sorry we’ve been so absent lately — we’ve just been so busy sewing that we forgot all about blogging for a while!
We did finish Molly’s Coat, and it came out tremendously cute! Click on the picture below to go to its page and read all about it…
The Alice dress is coming along nicely and we hope to have it done within the next week or so (look for pictures coming soon!) We have a couple other custom orders in the works, too — a Hawaiian dress, and perhaps even another ballet costume!
However, we’ve also been hard at work on the fall line! We’ve done a lot of thinking and planning, and it’s going to be beautiful — probably the best line we’ve done yet! We don’t have an official release date yet, but we’re tentatively planning on early September. We’ll be sure to keep you posted!
For all the MVC staff,
