I just took a look at my summer wardrobe (?) So pathetic that I keep thinking there surely must be a bag-o-clothes somewhere that I put away last fall. No, nada, nothing..and I’m beginning to remember that by late last summer I was desperate to shift gears and throw it all away..and I did. It’s all coming back to me now. Not good.
I own our sleeveless night dress and it’s great. My go-to girl at night. Now I need to raid our stash of French work tunics and that will begin to fill in some what-sees-daylight requirements.
We are talking about designing a pair of the lightest weight ever linen cigarette pants. Sure could use them now!

We are ready for Mother’s Day. We’ve got it covered and you’re going to look all the better for it. Having said that, why wait for the children?
NEW: Pinnies are selling strongly and to great reviews. We added a black pinnie to our line up. If an apron dress can be elegant this beauty hits the mark. Our favorite pinnie quote of the week comes from Australia: “The design is really something – so simple but clever, and every bit as gorgeous as it looked online..”
HOT: Remember you favorite plaid “full” skirt? plaid lunchbox? plaid pencil case? We took nostalgic plaid linen, collaged it into a scarf and had our way with it in the studio.
Cute, right? And there are lots where that came from.
IN THE WORKS: A sleeveless nightgown is about a week away, tea towels and heavy linen bag will follow. We are dying to design our version of the PERFECT BAG.
DEALS: We’ve added a new “sale” page to the website. Available are some of last season’s (but really very much in season) napkins, runners and mats. For $129 you can get a runner or mats and napkins for four. For $49.50 you can get a set of four napkins. Mom?
You can see it all on our sparkling new website: www.southstreetlinen.com
