Dream of Spring, or Un Rêve du Printemps

It's merely January, and our rain won't stop for some time now, but the shipment of new Republique du Chiffon patterns has me dreaming of spring. I took a few minutes in the store today to play...

This 1920s inspired Gladys Dress in a lovely raspberry silk...

What is there not to love about the Annette Skirt? I think it would be fabulous, yet practical, in a simple yarn-dyed linen rayon blend. Now, to find just the right buttons!

And, possibly my favorite dream piece: The Brigitte Dress in this sweet cotton lawn jump rope fabric. LOVE!

Last, but not least... Everyone needs a variety of jackets in the Pacific Northwest. I'd love to see the Roger Trench in just about anything. Here, I was dreaming of a (non waterproof—unfortunately) rust colored corduroy that we have in the shop (but not currently online) to create a vintage-inspired transitional piece.

For now...Spring is bound to come. We will see the sun again. Keep inspired.
