i took the 7am ferry to the mainland yesterday, and drove down to Portland to meet up with Barbara at chelliswilson. we had a great constructive, creative, collaborative talk
about clothing for her shop for fall/winter (and future events!). some good pieces that everyone needs. skirts in many fabrics. she has ordered some incredible indigo wool, and a soft ivory silk/wool twill. i can't wait to make a slip dress out of the silk/wool. this will all compliment what she has from FOG linen work, and Pip-Squeak Chapeau (etc.), very nicely. maybe soon we'll have another evening at her shop with music, and prosecco. stay tuned.
that picture above is the empty ferry cabin. i love the colors. grey, cream, brown, crazy green, and brick red. if you start seeing these colors in some new clothes, you know i've been inspired by the ferry!
