Rust + Purple Lace Floral Crop Top
By now, you can likely tell that I love crop tops. I love the vibe and versatility. You can wear them with highwaist jeans, empire waist slacks, maxi-skirts-- anything that rises above the navel is best worn with a crop when you want to feel sexy or stylish.
This one has rich colors, classic for Fall, and an unexpected twist for an early Spring pallette.

When I make clothes, I can feel when they have a home to go to. There's a feeling of something almost preverbal, primal, powerful; a rawness and also a deep connection to lineage. I feel a deep sense of gratitude for my ancestry (my grandmother taught me to sew) and a grace amidst the grittiness of this modern paced life. The feeling of slowing down to tansform literal scraps from our lives into whole pieces that serve the slow daily unfolidng of a rich and powerful tapestry of life.
These garments symbolize our interconnectednss as whole and our uniqueness as an important part of that whole. Sometimes it takes a while, but each piece seems to land with its rightful person as they navigate their unique journey of a universal search for meaning.
I knew this piece needed a waistband. When the maroon basketball shorts wiht their silky feel and unique perforated pattern, came out of the stash as an option, it was an instant crush.
