OoOoo so excited to finally share my new favorite clothing store in San Francisco with you! Best part?! It’s 4 blocks away from me! I recently stopped in with my camera to do a mini shoot of some of their goodies. I love the throwback concept of one-of-a-kind, custom made clothes, especially these days when you know every other person probably has that same shirt. The next best part?! Oh-so adorable wedding dresses for that perfect outdoor or garden wedding and complimenting laid back dresses for your bridesmaids. So here’s a little bit from Elinor and Evelyne of Eel & Ermine.

“Allow ourselves to introduce . . . ourselves. We’re Elinor & Evelyne, two artists who met while working in a custom cake shop in San Francisco. After our shared passion for desserts resulted in one too many tummy aches, we joined forces to create the kind of treats one can truly never get enough of: great clothes! We’re so excited to share our love of quality fabrics and quirky fashions with you. Our goal is simple: to make for you the clothes you’ve always wanted to make for yourself. Clothes you will feel and look great in. Clothes that are special, yet versatile enough to wear from a study date in a library straight to cocktails in an art gallery.”

The perfect outdoor wedding dress! I love the style and flattering shape. The extra attention to detail and the splash of soft color. Perfectly unique and custom for you. Bring some pattern into your big day with a comfortable dress that your bridesmaids can actually re-wear! They even have coordinating belts. I know these are going to be a huge hit!

Chilly nights? A hooded custom capelet to keep you warm.

Elinor and Evelyne have a selected group of fabrics specifically chosen for patten and texture. The fabrics change frequently to keep things fresh. Leftover fabric is used to make accessories for purchase such as pillows, belts, ties, bags and custom ideas – including their Humpty Lumpty dolls (see below).

A one hour dress bar?! Yes please. Pick your favorite style from the rack and have it tailored/altered while you sip tea and munch on homemade snacks.

Loving the look of layers these days. A simple shirt dress, add a fun skirt to go over to change things up. AND one of my favorite pieces – the boyfriend shirt! A man’s shirt completely altered to the ladies’ special flair to fit you perfectly. Elinor and Evelyne suggested this as a great bridal gift! The special shirt he wore the day he proposed to you…have it remade to fit you!
