New Dress!

The Ganges Dress has been something that I have been thinking about for a while. It has the same body as my most popular dress ( the Salt Spring Dress) but this one has a straight hem and little 3/4 sleeves.
I am screen printing squiggly hand drawn flowers on it. It is named after the town I live in Ganges on Salt Spring Island.  Like the dress the town is a great mix of urban and country.
Check it out!
WIll be bringing these to Circle Craft in Vancouver and Out of Hand in Victoria in a few weeks
If you can't get to either of the shows I am offering free shipping until Christmas :)
So you can shop on etsy.

Available in xs - s - m- l - xl
colors: Black, Periwinkle, Indigo

Map to the Cherry Blossom Studio


Most of my visitors in the studio have never been on Salt Spring Island before so I wanted to post this map if you are looking for me. You can follow the link above to get driving instructions. Just follow the Studio 8 signs to my place. See you there!

loving lavender

"lavender, sweet lavender;
come and buy my lavender,
hide it in your trousseau, lady fair.
Let its flovely fragrance flow
Over your from head to toe,
lightening on your eyes, your cheek, your hair."
Cumberkand Clark Flower Song Book 1929

Lavender is the colour of the moment right now. I have the Salt Spring Dress in this romantic lilac -  lavender colour and it stops people in their tracks at our Saturday market. Looks so lovely with lace. Here are some pictures celebrating lavender hues.

Kelly Green

This colour is pretty cool. Here is some visual inspiration about Kelly Green. I just listed a Kelly green Salt Spring dress on etsy but I made sure I pulled one for myself first!

Introducing the Gatsby Dress...

This is a Gatsby inspired dress and could easily be seen mingling at a garden party.  It is made from a light feathery weight Modal ( made from Beechwood fibre) and available on etsy or on Salt Spring Island 
sized xs- xl

  • "He smiled understandingly-much more than understandingly. It was one of those rare smiles with a quality of eternal reassurance in it, that you may come across four or five times in life. It faced--or seemed to face--the whole external world for an instant, and then concentrated on you with an irresistible prejudice in your favor. It understood you just as far as you wanted to be understood, believed in you as you would like to believe in yourself."
    F. Scott FitzgeraldThe Great Gatsby, Ch. 3

I will be adding lots of hairbands to our etsy page. These are really popular with my kids and at the Salt Spring Saturday Market so thought I would try and sell a few online. Check out the cute models I have :)
