vintage mushroom bag
This buttercup yellow gauze dress was sent to me by Emily DeLong, the designer and owner of Margu, a handmade and sustainable clothing line based in Arkansas. I can’t gush enough about how beautifully made this Margu dress is: expertly finished seams, fully lined, perfectly darted. It is truly, absolutely wonderfully made. There’s something very special about knowing the face behind the person who made a clothing item you adore; each piece is designed, cut, and sewn in her tiny studio. As someone who has sewn many a dress (and not nearly as well as Emily, I don’t mind admitting!), I know how much love and labor goes into each garment. There’s a special place in my heart for handmade, independent clothing lines — probably because I labored over my own for so long, you know? This one is truly special and I’m excited to see what’s in store for it. Be sure to check out more from Margu here, and you can also follow along on instagram!
