Hop, hop, hooray! Easter is almost here, one of my favorite seasons. The weather is perfect, I spend some much needed time with my family, and I finally get to eat all of the things I gave up for Lent (fried foods and chocolate– really practicing some self-control here). Check out some of my favorite, bright and fun Easter picks below to help celebrate the season in style!
1. J. Crew Bracelet // 2. Kendra Scott Earrings // 3. Mud Pie Willow Crochet Dress (love mixing blue tones with this dress) // 4. Kate Spade Scallop Clutch // 5. Rifle Paper Co. Card // 6. Peeps (an Easter staple) // 7. Mud Pie “Blessed” Bar Bracelet (the perfect Easter sentiment) // 8. Mud Pie Easter Baskets (love the personalized tote for Easter egg hunts) // 9. Jack Rogers Cork Sandals (cork is one of my favorite Spring trends!) // 10. Tory Burch Pitcher and Peonies (my flower go-to)
One of my biggest “day-to-day” tasks as a technical designer is directing fit sessions. In a fit session the design team and tech team evaluate samples and make necessary adjustments to improve styles. One of the most frustrating challenges of tech design is receiving a fit sample that measures perfectly, but looks awful!
Instead of loosing you in the technical jargon, I’ll try to illustrate a fitting to the best of my ability.
Towards the end of the Spring 2015 development season we kept receiving a sample of our Camille Beaded Midi dress with gaping at the neck. The sample looked great on and none of the measurements were off, but the only way to wear it was low on the bust with “mucho cleavage” or with the neck flopping open.
With help from a well placed safety pin we determined the edge of the neckline was about 1″ too long and the strap was angled in the wrong direction.
I hope I haven’t lost you! These next pictures are the pattern correction needed to fix the neckline.
As you can see, all this style needed was a little pattern love to make it into that perfect summer “go to” it is today!
At the Pie, you never know what your day will look like. Take this past Friday for instance – I was asked to step in and photo direct for our upcoming Spring 2015 Fashion catalog. The photo shoot took place on location in Downtown Atlanta. We had a great day filled with beautiful shots – we even snuck on top of a building for a gorgeous rooftop shoot! Enjoy the behind the scenes photos below and stay tuned for our new Spring 2015 Fashion product – will be available at www.mud-pie.com.
