I need your help, people! Regarding limited edition tees. I'm about to order summer shirts, and since I came up short on a few requested sizes last year, let me ask you: What sizes do you most want?? I will have three or four designs for kids and a couple for women. So cast your votes and let me know what you need!
Many thanks!!!

 So, this morning I spent a couple of hours in the chilly warehouse that contains the screen printers where I have my shirts printed for the summer line. 
I love seeing the screens with my designs outlined on them. There is always a great sense of excitement and anticipation there. 
And I got to walk out with a small stack of sample shirts, still faintly warm from the conveyor belt of the drying machine.
 The best part, of course, is trying on the new samples.
 Q and I had a bit of fun before dinner, modeling our new shirts.
 There are many rituals involved in the preparation for spring, but this is among my new favorites.
 A lot of fun to be had.
Q loves the pink ink on her new shirts, and wore hers out to dinner tonight. 
Many more previews to come...

Announcing.......Some exciting new projects with the amazing Michele Brulé of Enchanted Enfant!

Michele's lush and dreamy designs have graced the covers and pages of VOGUE Bambini, Martha Stewart Weddings, and have appeared on the red carpet at film premiers and television events.

I am proud and excited to be working on these new projects for Enchanted Enfant. Because they are still under wraps, I can't show you any previews here, but right now you can see a beautiful preview slideshow on the Enchanted Enfant site here! Just click on the "Estelle: The Book" button in the menu. 

Go look, go look! It's so beautiful!

 Fiona is ready for her first dance recital. She is 24" tall and entirely hand-stitched from 100% cotton muslin hand-dyed with walnut crystals. Her pattern was designed by my four-year-old daughter and I, and is entirely one-of-a-kind. Her features are hand-stitched from my collection of delicate vintage silk and cotton threads. Her clothes are handmade from scraps of old ballet skirts, cotton, tulle and grosgrain ribbon, and are not removeable. Her wonderful red hair is of 100% mohair. Scarlett's arms are poseable, jointed with buttons. She bends at the hip. She can certainly be played with, but may not be appropriate for smaller children.
