The height of sophistication is simplicity

The art of dressmaking

I believe in the art of dressmaking. 

Inspired by my european heritage, I design and make dresses focusing on beauty, function and craftsmanship. Our one of a kind pieces are sustainably made.

We make sure that every item that leaves our studio is ready for you to enjoy wearing.




Style & Quality

A Pyne & Smith dress is made with all natural fiber fabrics such as Linen and Wool. These materials are selected and crafted to last and improve with time. Designed in a classic, timeless style that is as functional as it is elegant. Wear your dress to the beach or out to dinner in comfort and in style.

I believe in sustainable, well made pieces that are timeless and last for years to come.

Handmade in CALIFORNIA

We source our 100% natural fiber fabrics from other small, ethical businesses. Our wool comes from a small, family owned American wool mill, and our linen, from a family run linen mill in Europe.

Handmade in California. Please allow around two to three weeks for your order to be made.
