Blankets & Cases

A post about Blankets and Pillow Covers

A huge thank you to Ace&Jig for the opportunity to make blankets from their beautiful textiles!

I hope all who are in the area can join us at Judith Boutique in Portland, Maine Friday, Aug. 18 5-8pm for an Ace&Jig trunk show. It will be a fun time!

About my work
I make striped, linen blankets and pillow covers. Each piece is unique, and made by me in my studio in Freedom, Maine. 

How does this work?
Each blanket is made to order. Kings, queens, fulls, and singles require about a month depending on the order, and amount of orders I have. Throws will take a couple of weeks. Pillow covers, likewise, a couple of weeks. I have found that including the colors black, white, grey, and natural in each piece sets an attractive stage to build from - although this does not need to be so. I like to work with about seven colors total in each blanket - although this does not need to be so! Each piece is backed with unbleached cotton muslin. So, as you can possibly see by now, this is a collaboration between us. You can choose your colors. The arranging of stripes will be my process. Therefore, the pricing below is a range. Payments installments can be arranged.

Blankets -
Throw 50x60 +/-$300
Single - 80x110 +/-$500
Full - 96x110 +/-$600
Queen - 102x116 +/-$725
King - 106x120 +/-$950

Pillow Covers-
24x24, 26x26 - $140
18x18, 20x20 - $130
16x16, 14x14 - $120
12x12 and under $100

Contact me with your idea, and we will talk. You can leave the colors up to me if you wish! You can send me an image that includes colors you like. All sorts of things!

And, I also make very simple, very special hand-sewn (no machine) wedding dresses.
And, clothes on occasion.

New Web Shop!

I will be adding more pieces soon - a striped broad shirt, a black minimalist shirt.
I used Squarespace to build it - easy, and I like the template (galapagos). However, it does take the time that it takes! For payment Squarespace uses Stripe, but if you'd prefer to purchase with Paypal, or with a check just send me an email with your order. I hope you like the shop!
Thank You All

For Marriage

Le Bouton Marriage
An idea that came to me strongly in Summer 2015. I did not actualize it. I was thinking at the time about newly approved marriage equality, and how YESSS! that was. How cool it will be when it's  normalcy just IS. When equality just is. 
I remember then talking marriage clothes to a few people, but the idea drifted away. I suppose it was because the images of the dresses were not in my mind. Now they are, after a year, they came in a flash that could not be resisted. This new expression in clothing is almost guiding itself. It's a bit of a command! Here is the concept talking to me : The Party Dress would like to be a wedding dress - it wants to be made in silk, actually, all of your dresses want to be wedding dresses - make that so - and you must do it this way - you must hand sew everything. They will be the loveliest dresses. There is nothing like them, and they must exist.

This is the first dress, the first style.

I am so proud, and happy.
