I was trying to design a skirt that would let me use up some square pieces of the popular “Equus” linen print. So I added triangles of solid linen to each side to create a circular skirt that is sewn to an elastic-waist yoke. What’s great is that it can be worn sideways as well so the print panel is off the hips. Call to see what vintage prints are in stock or order it in a solid color linen $110

This show-stopping jacket was inspired by a piece of linen drapery fabric from the 1960’s with a bold graphic horse print. Further searches turned up five colorways of the print, and the Equus jacket was born. The upper portion is a simple Dolman cut with wide scoop neck and 3/4-length kimono sleeves. The print skirt is attached just below the bustline, closes with five buttons. Available in vintage horse print or standard linen colors. $245
