This is my third order from Carey and she does a fantastic job, everybody compliments on the beautiful linen tunics she has made. Thank you so much for doing this, it can be difficult to find clothing for tall women and I appreciate her making them a custom length! I will definitely order again!

Absolutely perfect. You know you are getting something special from the delivery to the first time you touch the fabric to when you slip it on. I love the attention to details, the finishes on the seams to the choice of fabric.. Thank you. This is quality that will last for years.

About

Vintage Inspired Clothing for Women

My name is Carey Dion and I live in a lovely rural town in central Massachusetts. I work out of my home in a well lit studio space, surrounded by textiles and hand crafted souvenirs from around the world, and these things inspire me every day.

I graduated from Massachusetts College of Art and Design in Boston, and soon after moved to Chicago with my best friend with the aim of working at a theater costume design shop. I ended up finding work as a pattern drafter and design assistant for a small clothing design studio, and I loved it. I really enjoyed being able to interact with customers, try new design ideas and sew up new samples to see how they would turn out.

Two years later I moved back home to Massachusetts and after working for a few small companies I was ready to open my own business. I ran my own clothing design studio in Lexington, Massachusetts for about 6 years. This is where I really developed my own style and discovered which fabrics I loved to work with - linen, cotton, wool, natural fabrics with a bit of texture and drape.

My designs are mostly inspired by vintage clothing. Whenever I travel or see a period movie with beautiful costumes, I'm totally inspired to start designing new pieces.

If you see a style you like but are interested in a different color, fabric, or variation, please let me know - I'd love to work with you!

And thanks to Etsy for featuring my shop in their Quit Your Day Job blog!

    I have been designing clothing for women for over 20 years now. I try to make clothing that is comfortable, classic, and with a little vintage detail. I believe your clothing should last for years and you should feel great in the clothes you wear!
