the alison skirt and handwoven scarf




photos by Emily Moore

I should wait to post more photos, but I've never been good at keeping my own secrets. This is the Alison skirt, which is featured in this month's Domino magazine. I named it after Alison Griffin, the editor I worked with on the article. (My scanner isn't working, but I'll post the article as soon as Elly scans it for me.) This high-waisted skirt is made from linen and has dark brown leather buttons. See the scarf I paired it with? (I did all the styling myself for this photo shoot.) My seamstress Christy wove it by hand on her loom. I'll be selling the scarves in the shop too, so stay posted for more detailed photos.

I saw you in the new Domino and exclaimed to myself, "Yay, Jenny!" Your fall collection is blowing me away. Your styling is wonderful.

oh i'm so curious about linen for fall! maybe i don't have to rule out the linen i've been buying as only being a summer fabric.

How amazing do you look in Domino in this skirt? I would say very. I'm super excited. Hopefully I will be more on top of it and actually snag one of your amazing pieces.

erica-knits said...

Wow! I'm even more excited! I'm so thrilled that you wore your own skirt in the Domino feature. (I am still peeking at Elly's photo until the issue arrives on stands here.) Also, how brilliant is that scarf? I think it is great you'll be selling them in the shop too. That Christy is talented!

I hadn't even cracked open the new Domino -- it was just sitting on my table. I just checked it out. Nice! Congrats!

Abbie said...

The skirt is adorable. And the colour is perfect.

kristena marie said...

Always a fan, I was so pleased to see you in my Domino magazine yesterday. Congrats! Your work is beautiful.

ah, the use of linen for fall is so unexpected! but in the saturated purple with the leather buttons, it just works. this is such a lovely silhouette.

can't wait to see the scans of the Domino article! i tried searching for it this weekend but was unsuccessful.

UNIFORM Studio said...

oh -keep the secrets coming:)
I need to run out and find a copy of domino NOW.

polairebird said...

The skirt is so very lovely. Beautiful color.

knitchka said...

I love this outfit so much. That purple linen is beyond perfect. And the scarf ... so great. Christy is super talented! I love the Lena dress, too. Every Wiksten collection amazingly seems to get better and better. I don't know how you do it, but keep it up! :)

anne said...

Love the Alison skirt! When will it be available?!

Kate said...

oh my god Jenny, I am so excited about this skirt!!

papericecream said...

Oh no! Leather buttons! Sigh. I really love this skirt and was so excited about it, but I don't buy leather. Would you ever consider making it without leather buttons?

oldoldfashioned said...

i simply love your work, i wish i could snap up every piece this moment! this skirt is particularly lovely, i can imagine donning it over the long winter here in Norway, how lovely it would be!

Joanna Goddard said...

i JUST saw the domino story last night -- you are GORGEOUS! loved it. congrats.

You really make interesting clothes. HOWEVER!! Put a bra on that model. The boobs are totally distracting from the clothes. I'm surprised no one has left that comment yet. You have to fix that.
