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 quality materials. Our small batch made pieces are sustainably crafted in California.

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 one of the oldest linen mills in Europe.

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