Summertime in Seattle

 As I turn 26,  life seems to fly by and never is quite what I expect it to be. However, I'm
 doing tons of photography, reading quite a bit this summer, and shifting into a more self-motivated career path! Here's whats been happening in photos (in no particular order) :

Super inspired by the Mattawa mountains on highway 243 everytime we pass by going east. These shots of my Yuki dresses will be on the upcoming website!
RIP my Platies Spock and Geordi. My vintage animals and 3 month old plastic fetus hung out on their last weeks.
 Hanging out with color coodinated babes and bands.
 MONSTERRR!

I posted on my personal page with some exciting news! My studio is now set up to take students for private tutoring on project based questions, pattern making or draping lessons, hourly! Have a project you need to finish up? Always wanted to make yourself a blouse with some amazing vintage fabric you have? Emails me for details and rates!  More info coming.

Millie Vixen life stuff



Hey all!  Photo montage of the past few weeks. This was fourth of july waiting for our friends delicious  vegan ice cream treats...check them out! 



Here's my look for the wedding we attended in may. I'm really missin' these rainbow brows, now that the bleach grew out. Here's an upclose of the earrings I'll be selling on my site in the next coming month (!!) and the dress I made.
The skirt materials are vintage and the top is a hand draped metallic crepe. My hair is covering a little rosette.

I've also been contiuing to work on these dresses to sell in store! Making so many colors and one size fits most, since it's awesome jersey!


This week is filled with lots of family, sewing, a photo shoot and good friends.  Oh, and I bought a professional dress form of my own today!! Dreams are coming truue- I've always wanted to focus full time on my line and I'm finally getting to do it! Life is good. 

Questions? millievixen@gmail.com

Ciao,

I'm baaaack

....from internet vacation, literal vacation, and working a full time contract job!  And while it seems like I haven't been busy on the interwebs, I have been making quite a lot of patterns and logging in the hours at the studio!  But first, here's New York...

 rehearsal dinner outfits
 gorgeous wedding views from the Water's Edge
 Cami G brooklyn date day
 wedding hair/rainbow brows/ millie vixen earrings and dress!
 Made this custom dress for myself.  I just couldn't find any that were appropriate for a wedding, or that I liked in my price range. 
This is my Knit Yuki dress sample that I designed awhile back. Every time I wear it I get more compliments on it and requests, so for this trip I thought I'd really test it out.
My gal pal Sooz that I've missed so much! She went to fashion school with me here in Ballard but now has an amazing creative design job in NY. Super proud and happy for her. On memorial day, we got to day drink and play though :) 
The back. When I'm home  I wear it unbelted but like personally defining my waist more. We were in Brooklyn Heights with friends going to the park.
 These are some of the Yuki dresses I've been making since I've gotten back. I got this black cotton jersey and this pink rosette jersey in the fashion district. Expect these online soon! I am designing the site this week+weekend! 

Super excited about this real busy next chapter in my life and business, and excited to share all this vintage fabric and materials (as garments and accessories) that I've been hoarding all these years! Hopefully you will find a piece that is all you....and you can help me pay rent!
