summer sweaters

My co-designer and I FINALLY got together to do some sewing. She looked quite cute in her fresh white top and handmade blue sweater, I had to snap a shot of her!
We mostly organized ourselves in terms of selling our clothes, talking to buyers, etc.. but we did manage to design and whip up a quick little summer sweater. The collection is for fall, but why not wear sweaters in summer too? Show some leg... balance it out. My crappy old cutoffs worked well, but I like the piece with a pair of really crisp black trousers too.

The sweater is vintage, made of lambswool and angora, and the floral silk is a scrap from a dress I designed a few years ago. The buttons I found in my basement, and they're actually mismatched.. which I think makes it even cuter.
