A Work In Progress...

I have wanted a closet of jumpsuits for years.  Years!  Just think, one piece that you can put on and go.  !!  No top-to-bottom coordination to consume your thoughts in the morning, and it's better than a dress because you can sit however you like without anyone gasping.  

But, well, finding the right one/s is surprisingly very difficult.  The cheap ones are way too sexy, the good ones are too expensive ($450 for a floral jumpsuit, really?) and the vintage ones are way too small in the waist and derrière.  After too many humbling experiences trying these things on, I just stopped looking after a while.

So I decided to take on the challenge myself of creating the jumpsuit I never had.  And if I can design one successfully, surely there's more styles I can come up with, yes?  Surely!  


With my first design, I started easy.  A harem jumpsuit to wear around the house, to pop on for errands and appointments and with some heels, maybe dinner and a movie?  Who knows, we'll see where the day takes us.


It's no secret, I am a woman who loves leisure and loads of comfy me-time.  Even when I'm working.  And like, I can't do that if I'm like uncomfortable, you know?  

This jumpsuit is the solution.  To those times I don't want to think about pairing pants with the one shirt that's not in the laundry (but I don't wanna wear that shirt!), or those times I want to wear a single statement and an overcoat - this harem jumpsuit is exactly what I need it to be:  a beautiful, simple, easy alternative.


Ah, blissful.  But what do you think??


Wait, hold that thought, I almost forgot... 

 ********

Some of you already know I design and sew clothing.  In fact, a lot of the clothes you see on this blog are pieces I've designed and made.  I started about 5 years ago, sewing clothing for myself - just copying designs that I would see in department stores but couldn't afford.  Then I began sewing for my friends.  And then my friend's friends, co-workers, even random people who would come up to me asking me where I got my outfit.

I've never officially commented on creating a clothing line but it's gotten to the point where I've been asked so many times throughout the last few years, "When are you going to sell your clothes????", that I'll come clean:

I don't know.

But more importantly...
Nothing would make me happier, selling my clothing to you all.  The Tiny Closet is indeed a lifestyle.  It's about simplicity, function, purpose, ease and total comfort.  In your home, your work, your life and of course, your closet.  How that looks in the form of apparel?  I'm still working on that concept for myself. 

It's a work in progress and I'm almost there.  So!

For those of you who were/are/will be interested in clothing from The Tiny Closet, I would love to send you the very first announcement and first access to my pieces once they are available.  So email me or leave a comment here with your email address and I will happily add you to my mailing list of Tiny Closet clothing alerts and access only!

Because I'm as excited as you are :)

  18. It's gorgeous! But I wish you had a photo of you standing up in it b/c the stomach area is always what keeps me from buying/wearing jumpsuits...I have had two kids and never had a flat stomach anyway, but most jumpsuits pull weird or aren't flattering in that area. Also, LOVE your shoes! So cute. Add me to the list...anniej83@hotmail.com
