in Black and Antique White Silk Organza
- Three rows of pleating with gathers tucked in between them create a striking visual display on the front and back of the frock.
- Good coverage along the arm holes and shoulders so undergarments don't unexpectedly appear.
- Darting and gentle tailoring at the waist creates a comfortable and feminine silhouette. Small pockets are centered on both side seams, pleasantly placed right where you need them. A perfect hideaway for a handkerchief or anything else you want to have right at your fingertips.
The holidays are filled with joy and cheer and...shipping! We caught a photo of this bespoke Henrietta Duster Coat
in Fireside Cotton Voile just before closing the box and sending it off to its new home.
One of the many orders that shipped out recently from the winter collection, 2014. Hambledon Duster Coat
in Russet Cotton Velvet Corduroy.
Elegantly basic. The Fitz Shirt
in Antique White All Season Linen is a staple garment in any Ivey Abitz wardrobe. This was just made for a client who plans to wear it several times a month. The wonderful thing about our all season linens is that they get better with age.
Blanchefleur Duster Coat over the Blanchefleur Frock. Willow Sash around the neck.
in our Croquet Striped Wool.
This is a playful and bold combination for our Baedeker design. We adorned the front of the jacket with rare antique english wooden buttons, and their elegant and bold shape complements the jacket so very well. This is just one example of how you can put together IA designs and fabrics that aren't featured in our Look Book to come up with a one-of-a-kind look, made just for you. What will you choose? Let us know, and we'll create it for you.
Just before closing the box and shipping out. This is the Fennefleur Frock
in Limited Edition Floral Brocade (sold out fabric).

- Blanchefleur Frock in Russet Cotton Velvet Corduroy
- Clotaire Sash in Polka-dot Silk Chiffon
The Truitt Jacket
and Blanchefleur Frock
have been popular choices amongst patrons for their new Fall/Winter ensembles. They have an ease and versatility about them that is admittedly addictive, and many clients end up ordering at least one Truitt and Blanchefleur from every collection in different fabrics.
This is an ensemble featuring the go-to Truitt and Blanchefleur. They were requested to be made in our more casual fabrics for extra comfort and coziness for everyday wear. The Foggy hue is a nice contrast draped over the rich Russet hue in the Blanchefleur. Our Limited Edition Polka-dot Silk Chiffon Clotaire Sash is a lovely accent to frame the face.
- Truitt Jacket
in Foggy Plaid Wool and Silk Scrim
- Fennefleur Frock
in Foggy and Antique White Soft Plaid Cotton
This recent ensemble order from a client shows a variation on a theme from our ensembles in our Look Book. The Truitt Jacket in our new plaid scrim truly shows its versatility for the wearer. The Truitt and Fennefleur together can go in so many different directions, just by buttoning or unbuttoning the jacket and changing the accessories.
Here are just a few ideas of why these work so well together and how they can be worn in different ways:
– a unique look for work attire by wearing understated, yet elegant, shoes and jewelry
– a casual look for everyday wear by wearing the jacket unbuttoned and wearing ensemble with vintage sneakers or ballet-like slip-on shoes
– an evening out by wearing heels, a silk Clotaire Sash around the neck, and an antique brooch on the collar
Versatility is the hallmark of Ivey Abitz designs, and of the Truitt and Fennefleur together.
- Amorette Shirt Jacket
in Russet Old World Knit
- Fennefleur Frock
in Limited Edition Russet Floral Challis
This ensemble was a rush order for a client that ordered the Amorette in our almost sold out Russet Old World Knit and a Fennefleur Frock in the extraordinary Russet Floral Challis. This fabric option was exclusive to our Facebook
followers and IA News
This is the kind of ensemble that you have to force yourself not to wear everyday. Our indispensable Elliot Jacket makes a perfect pairing over the Addy Frock. The Addy is particularly stunning in plaid with its bias cut insets, pockets, and waistband. It's relevant for casual everyday wear, for going out, and for special occasions. Best of all, it's comfortable AND elegant -- a signature Ivey Abitz combination.
in Foggy Soft Ribbed Knit
in Black and Foggy Soft Plaid Cotton
The Addy in plaid, as well as our other frocks, have been the go-to frock of the 2012 fall season. Here's another ensemble that was made for a client, combining our Foggy Cotton Velvet Corduroy with our Foggy/Black Soft Plaid Cotton. A Baedeker Scarf in our Signature Black Ribbed Weave is as comfortable and versatile as it is lovely draped around the neck. The bias cut pleating in our Mathilda designs feature the variegated cording in the cotton velvet, making a striking addition to the ensemble.
A great Ivey Abitz starter set.
These garments were ordered to be worn just as you see them here. The Cozette Skirt was also chosen to be worn with other garments like the Hambledon Duster Coat, Truitt Jacket, Holkham Hall Vest, and Amorette Shirt Jacket to name a few. This is a great example of a starter set in Ivey Abitz where you can easily expand your wardrobe with just one ensemble. Mixing and matching possibilities are plentiful.
