LauPre Spring Summer Preview

Filed under: Projects, Website info — laupre @ 9:51 am

Want a peek at the items that will be popping up in my Etsy Shop this spring and summer?  I’ve been working on a handful of fun tops, skirts, and dresses that will all be posted soon, and I’ll be making new items all summer long.

Let’s take a look at tops first:


So far I’ve been working with mostly a palette of blues and greens in my tops, because I just love these colors for summer ’09.  I’ve been playing around with contrasts, and pairing solids with prints.

Blues and greens aren’t the only colors I’m interested in, though.  Take a look at this fab dress in red, yellow, black, and white.  The print fabric on the bottom of the dress and edging on the top is some reclaimed vintage stretch that I just had to give a new life to.  A row of bright red buttons decorate the deep cut back yoke. This dress is so lightweight and breezy it would be perfect for even the hottest of summer days.


Here’s another dress with a warm, fiery hue.  This one features crossing straps at the waistline and a tie in the back.  The bust detail is decorated with layers of overlapping printed knit fabric.


This dress brings us back to the greens, but with some fun details.  Allover stitched lines give this strapless dress a geometric and architectural quality.  A bow ties in the back for cuteness and fit.


And finally let’s take a look at skirts.  I’ve just gotten started working on these, but I’m excited to bring as many fun new ideas as I can for the new season!


Thanks for looking, and be sure to keep an eye out as I add all new items often!
