Raindrops Dress
This weekend I tried to channel Tim Walker while photographing my first foray into toddler clothing, the hand crochet raindrops dress. I love this dress for many reasons. First, it's fair trade and hand crocheted by a wonderful group of Bolivian women. The lattice crochet pattern on the top yoke is really unique, and has a charming scallop crochet hem along the neckline and straps.

Second, I got to explore my raindrops pattern on the hem, which is hand stenciled, one of my favorite printing techniques.

And third--wood buttons. Nothing beats wood buttons. The wood beads on the drawstring waist comes in pretty close. Now available in the shop.
