Working the farm in Ivey Abitz

My Phinneus Coat Dress arrived today. My fingers brushed its material as I pushed aside the tissue paper wrapping. I was immediately compelled to grasp the beautiful and surprisingly soft steel gray bundle without unfolding it and hold it against my cheek, relishing in its coolness. I let the fabric flow over my hands as I unfolded it and gazed upon my very first Ivey Abitz creation…sigh…..I am truly blessed. Thank you.

This summer’s collection has really been FULL of treasures, and I know that I will be treasuring my summer wardrobe for many years to come. In Southern California these are really year round clothes! Thanks again for your wonderful designs and your wonderful team. I know that behind the lovely clothes that arrive on my doorstep are hours of thoughtful consideration of fabrics, design, and loving handwork on many people’s part.

With Love and Appreciation,

-Barbara Jean

Of course, I have been eagerly awaiting my new packages and was thrilled when they arrived today. All are perfection and fit like a dream. I feel as if they have been part of my life all along. It is a very interesting phenomenon, and I think it is because they are so perfectly attuned to my personality.

The wonderful Evie Frock and Dress arrived yesterday, and I tried them on under Sabrina’s [her dog] watchful eye (Lila Rose [her cat] has quit her job as the clothing try-on supervisor). I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE them! I know your description said the hem had extra movement built in, but that was positively British in its understatement. The way it flows and bounces is so lively and beautiful, I’ve never seen anything quite like it. It occurred to me that the Evie wags its tail!

Frances from California

From Ivey Abitz Voices, the blog…

Toward the end of my deployment the Afghan phone carrier I had offered very slow 3G. One day our base took indirect fire, where people lob ordnance into where we live. We put on our heavy body armor and headed for the shelters. I sat in a concrete bunker wearing a flack jacket and helmet and waited for pages to slowly load on my phone. Coincidently, that day was the very day IA’s spring 2013 line premiered, and I wasn’t going to miss out on making a mental list of new items to contemplate…

You seem to outdo yourself with every upcoming season. I took your advice and submitted my order right away so I could be at the top of the sewing list. I’m super excited to receive my order in time for my vacation. It’s going to be so fun to be traipsing around France in your beautiful creations!

Thank you again for your thoughtfulness..
