This awesome linen vintage fabric was given to me by the lovely ladies at Stripe in Santa Cruz. Luckily there is a ton more fabric, so custom peplums are available. Each peplum can be lined in a silk or a silk cotton blend (we can work together to choose the color). Starting at $118. Please email sallyesposito@gmail.com. Thanks!

Put the izzy in busy

Jeesh life’s been nonstop this summer/spring/ALL THE TIME. Luckily much of that recent busyness has been filled with camping trips, city adventures, thrift store bouts, long beach days, and many mai tais. Unfortunately, it’s also been filled with intense work obligations and not enough sewing time. Sigh.

Somehow, I did manage to get one item done (and about six dresses half way done).

Introducing….the Koala Shirt!

Koala close up

The front is a vintage (never used) tea towel, 100% linen from Ireland. The back is an organic off-white cotton with a vintage blue zipper.

Waist: 30″
Hips: 42″
From Neck to Waist: 15″

I think this shirt would look great with a pencil skirt or fitted shorts. Out of all the stuff I’ve made, this one seems to me the most like something you’d find in an Anthropologie catalogue.

However, unlike Anthropologie, this item is truly one-of-a-kind. Enjoy!
