winter wonder land

so along with some fingerless gloves, scarves, and hats, i've decided to venture into cape territory this winter. i'll be stocking my booth in anticipation of the indiegenius bazaar on october 22-23 with all kinds of sherlock-holmery. follow this blog to get a sneak peak of styles before they hit the boutique! if you see something you like, i might even let you snag it before the bazaar. ;)

and remember, i do custom orders! winter is the best time for corsets....

glove time!

with fall right around the corner, it's winter accessory time at yomono. organic cotton and vintage knits are the focus for these fingerless gloves. they fit almost every hand size and at make great gifts. they're the perfect cure for every crafter's cold-hand blues. snag your pair early, because these are in high demand during the holiday shopping season!

another great blog to follow

do yourself a favor and follow the blog - she woke up dreaming - for fashion, style, and (more recently) apothecary awesomeness; not to mention an adorable cat name bettie. how can you resist?

yomono is in love!

...with the golden fields of honey print from harmony art. curvilinear floral in yellows and oranges, modern yet retro -- too pretty to keep in your closet until spring. did i mention it's organic? and sateen?

oh...so lovely...

yomono & social action

i get frequent updates from change.org on new petitions. it's really the easiest way to make a difference. right now there's a man in georgia facing execution this month. 7 witnesses have revoked their testimony claiming the police pressured them into it. 9 people have signed affidavits stating a different man committed the crime. at the very least, this man deserves a new trial. it only takes a few seconds to make a difference.

featured at make and made's 6 designers / 60 days

dropping off some more reconstructed menswear at make and made today. check out my full line in the boutique now!

workin' it at indiegenius

come by and see my booth at indiegenius in bishop arts. i'll be here most of the day if you'd like to meet the designer (myself). we're open until 8pm. here are a few teasers to whet your appetite for eco fashion:

vintage polyester fabric transformed into handmade jackets and skirts. put a little color in your fall wardrobe.

organic cotton steel boned corsets. fashion-forward and waist reducing. (wanna know a secret? they're also great for posture. just try slouching in one of these!)

colleen corset dress : ready for cocktail hour

finally finished the colleen corset dress. vintage-inspired neckline, built-in corset reinforced with spiral steel boning, backlaced. it creates a perfect hourglass silhouette, cinching in the waist and flaring out to an a-line skirt. watch for a custom listing on etsy!
