Leslie has been a long time employee here at Hart’s and seriously ALWAYS wears handmade garments to work. She made this dress by copying a favorite dress she already had in her closet. I absolutely love the pin-tucking detail at the bottom and drawstring ribbon under the bust line. The fabric is a linen/cotton blend.
Another handmade dress that Leslie wore to work this week. The dress has button down front with shirring in the back. The fabric is a rayon challis print.
Jo is another long time employee who is always wearing a handmade fashion. This is a button down western shirt with gingham fabric for the main and contrasting red polka dot yoke and collar. If you know Jo, then you know she always adds some fabulous trim, ribbons or lace to her garments. For this shirt she used a floral ric rac that we recently got in.
Bridget made these fun pants by copying a pair of her favorite yoga pants. She sewed in an elastic waistband like you would with a pair of boxers. The fabric is a jersey knit print. Simple, comfy and fun!
