Colorblock Polka Dot Shirt Dress

JLD Colorblock Polka Dot Shirt Dress 1My favorite part of the design process is fabric selection. For this new spring shirt dress design, I paired a crisp, luxury cotton shirting fabric by Burberry with a contrasting hand-dyed blue cotton for the outer cuff layer. To further add interest to the overall design, I chose glazed marine blue buttons to highlight the polka dot print.

JLD Colorblock Polka Dot Shirt Dress 2

I styled the look with a mix of longtime accessory finds that have been sitting in my closet (and that have also moved back and forth with me across the country), including a vintage black leather Coach handbag and (possibly vintage) powder coated white floral earrings from Steven Alan.

JLD Colorblock Polka Dot Shirt Dress 3

I also styled the look with three of my favorite go-to accessories:
1. Large red hair barrette by Sylvain Le Hen, made in France and inspired by sensual organic forms,
2. Whimsical multicolored ikat socks by Bonne Maison, made with high quality Egyptian cotton spun in Italy, and
3. Dieppa Restrepo black leather Dandy flats from Totokaelo.

JLD Colorblock Polka Dot Shirt Dress 4

As for design details, I oftentimes find button cuffs to be a little restrictive, especially when I want to roll up my sleeves. Thus, I decided to draft a three-quarter sleeve with a full slit cuff for more freedom and less fuss. (Plus, you can still see a peek of the polka dot fabric sewn as the inner cuff layer.)

This dress was recently featured in my latest article for Britex Fabrics, which includes a button placket pattern drafting tutorial written by yours truly. For order inquiries of this new dress style, please contact us at jamielaudesigns@gmail.com.

Indigo Basketweave Raw Silk Cap Sleeve Pleated Dress x Britex Fabrics Guest Blogging

JLD Indigo Basketweave Raw Silk Cap Sleeve Pleated Dress 1

A sunny morning in Golden Gate Park

One of our top-selling dress styles is the fit and flare silhouette, available with a gathered or pleated skirt, square or rounded neckline. In this latest version, I used an indigo basketweave raw silk. Its beautiful texture works great with this tailored silhouette, originally designed using a Japanese dragonfly print.

JLD Navy Pleated Tonbo Dress

Our form flattering Navy Pleated Tonbo Dress in a textured Japanese cotton.

I love the beauty of raw silk and its natural, subtle luster.

JLD Indigo Basketweave Raw Silk Cap Sleeve Pleated Dress 2

I styled the look with my Rachel Comey trompe l’oeil wood wedge platforms and colorful ikat Bonne Maison socks. For order inquiries of this new dress style, please contact us at jamielaudesigns@gmail.com.
