White+Off-White from Amanda Archer

There's an article on the etsy blog about white dresses, which led me back to this shop, and her wonderful handmade clothing.
All of these pretties are from:

I love the smocking. I haven't worn smocked clothing since I was a child (which wasn't that long ago, with notes like these you'd think I was 67 or whatever) nor have I learned to make it (yet!) but I will soon. So brace yourself for a smocked creation sometime this year. :):):)
Details! I find myself ever increasingly impassioned with love for flowers. I collect them, both paper and fabric, vintage and new. Every time I go antiquing I hunt all over for millinery flowers.
I love the double darts/pleats that she uses on these shirts. I like garments that are tailored to make the waist lines more graceful. Not surprisingly, I *love* princess seams.

This is a classy little number in coat-ville. A dress coat actually. Lovely.


  1. Oohh, I love the dress with the pleated ruffle around the neckline. So cute!

  2. I've kind of fallen in love with white clothes lately. I've avoided them before in fear of staining them. I might just try some this spring/summer.
