Hannah Elizabeth Spring/Summer 14 Lookbook

I'm a little behind with Blog Friday this week, but I'd love to share with you our S/S 14 Lookbook. It was so fun doing the photoshoot, working with our model Grace and photographer Joey to come up with a simple and effective lookbook. We wanted the pastel tones to really show in the photos and still have a vintage hint with the styling and poses.

Model: Grace Stead
Photography: Joey Little

S/S 14 Design Evolution: Rosie Dress

The second in our series of showing our design evolution is featuring our Rosie dress, a fit & flare vintage inspired dress with short sleeves and finishes at the knee.

In the original sketch it had full length sleeves but decided to make them sweeter by shortening the length to just above the elbow.

This toile (crazy cheap fabric was used) was when the main dress was together before adding sleeves and collar. Was already loving the subtle silhouette and couldn't wait to see it complete.

The completed toile/mock-up looked so sweet and vintage-esque, especially with the pointed collar.

The first properly made dress in the design was a printed jersey fabric and we really liked how the darts created these lovely falls through the skirt.

And the second dress made in the design was a Paris crepe fabric and vintage fabric collar. This fabric was more stiffer and held the shape more better throughout the skirt.
