Measurement Tips


Bring arms to your sides, place tape measure under your arms
and run it around the fullest part of the bustline.


Locate the natural crease of your waist by bending to one side. Loop the tape measure around
your natural waistline, keeping one finger between the tape and your body for an easy fit.


Place feet together, loop the tape measure around the fullest part of your hips,
approximately 7 inches below your waistline.

The rallier

Carly Martin

The Ralliers  is a collection of interviews with female creators we admire. We look for women who make hard choices in exchange for self-defined lives. You'll leave these stories with wisdom, comfort and beauty too.

 Describe yourself.

I’m Carly, I’m an artist and illustrator and my company, Clementine Studio, focuses on wedding stationery design, illustration for brands, woven textiles and custom watercolors.  I live in Chicago with my husband and pup, Norman! 

How have you broken with tradition in exchange for a self-defined life? 

Before I launched Clementine Studio in New York in 2014, I had jumped around various jobs in the art world, thinking I needed to work with other artists’ careers instead of cultivating my own as an artist.  But it was a gut feeling that I needed to start my own thing, whatever it looked like.  I learned a lot working for other people and with coworkers who are still friends to this day, and I think it's so important to work in environments that challenge you because it enforces what you want to do differently in the future.  When I ultimately decided to go out on my own, all of my peers were just starting to find solid footing in their careers that looked very different from my own and leaving the “workforce” felt reckless and lonely.  Today feels a lot different than it did 6 years ago, nobody else that I knew was working from home or freelancing at the time and I was playing constant defense about how I spent my days- trying to prove that I was actually building a company, not just sitting around at home.  But I religiously read the “Biz Ladies” column in Design Sponge and found people carving their own path to look up to, New York is perfect for that.  It took me years to shake the feeling of needing to prove myself, I’m still working on it.  But it helps push me outside my comfort zone.  

Tell us about your uniform.   

Always comfort first.  I work at home and sit in a million different positions and get paint on my clothes (and so much dog hair) so I have no use or patience to wear uncomfortable things.  The idea of a uniform has become more and more useful for me as I’ve figured out what I love to wear.  Which is mostly loose, comfortable pants and basic tees or oversized button-ups, linen in the summer, worn-in jeans, house dresses, jumpsuits, things I can move around in and not feel restricted by but that also make me feel the most like myself. 

Tell us about your work. 

I work on a lot of different projects at once.  Usually I’m designing wedding stationery, working on various commissions, a collaboration or two, shipping out prints and also hopefully working on my own paintings, which I’ve been better about building in time for in my week.  And I’ve been working on a new project throughout quarantine that is finally launching this month!  It’s called Clementine To Go and it’s a self-serve way to get my signature watercolor designs at a more accessible price point.  I created a ton of “save-the-new-date” designs for couples impacted by the pandemic which helped launch the templates I’m using for the invitation suites. 

What are you searching for?  

How to care less about what other people think, something that’s plagued me my entire life!  And unattainable lake houses on Zillow when I procrastinate.    

What have you learned along the way? 

To trust my instincts.  For so long I assumed I wasn’t good at the business stuff simply because I never studied it and I’m more right-brained.  But that’s BS and I’ve finally started to trust my intuition as a reliable business source, it’s no different than any other instinct and it hasn’t steered me off course yet.


It makes me feel so much less anxious during the day now that people aren't commuting to and from work, hustling around, trying to cram in as many possible work hours in a day.  Doing a creative job will never perfectly fit between the 9-5 hours (I've tried)


What are you struggling with?

I'm struggling with some anxiety about quarantine ending (whenever that happens).  Apart from the obvious reasons why I'll be relieved once the pandemic is over, I've really otherwise thrived in quarantine.  Productivity to me has never meant jam-packed, stressful days; I love a slower-paced lifestyle.  Since I'm an introvert and I usually work from home anyway, my day-to-day hasn't changed much.  Selfishly, I've loved that everyone else has now been forced to slow down to my usual pace.  It makes me feel so much less anxious during the day now that people aren't commuting to and from work, hustling around, trying to cram in as many possible work hours in a day.  Doing a creative job will never perfectly fit between the 9-5 hours (I've tried), but now it finally feels like I'm doing the same output as my peers, which is a lot by my standards, but usually feels like less compared to others' "busy" work schedules.

What brings you comfort?  

Routine.  Now more than ever, but even pre-quarantine I relied heavily on routine.  My days aren’t really structured since I work from home, so I need a strict morning routine in order to feel productive and be in bed early to read.

Share a good read, watch, or listen.

I recently finished reading Georgia by Dawn Tripp.  I love historical fiction and this book tells the story of Georgia O’Keeffe, her relationship with Alfred Stieglitz and how it influenced her career, but it’s told in a way that reads as a juicy novel.  

Tell us about something new.

Mid-quarantine my husband and I got Divvy (city bike) memberships and it’s been such a game changer.  It’s so fun to bike around the city and the lakefront and is the only way to keep me from looking at my phone/news constantly.

Tell us about a gift you gave someone.

For Xmas this past year I made my mom, sister and aunt their own cookbooks filled with family recipes from my mom and aunt’s Italian grandmothers.  Now during quarantine the 4 of us started a nightly text chain of what we’re making for dinner to keep us all inspired! 

Tell us about something you created.

I drank the Pandemic bread-making kool-aid and I’m not ashamed to admit it.  Banana bread, No-Knead Bread, anything you’ve seen on a meme, I have baked.

Share a takeaway.

Like a lot of people, I’ve been deeply humbled and have learned a lot this year, specifically this summer throughout the Black Lives Matter movement and how our country’s reacted to it.  For years I’ve struggled with how to give back & create a greater social impact within my business.  I thought it had to be a clear connection to what I DO- that it had to be art related and make perfect sense.  Until this summer, when building out Clementine To Go and it was suddenly very clear to me that 1) there’s no time to waste coming up with a perfect “on-brand” solution and 2) companies need to be better at being good people before they can be a good brand.  This year I’ve gotten a lot more involved in my local community and with organizations around Chicago that matter to me as a person, therefore they matter to Clementine Studio too.  As passionate as I am about building an art business, I’m now equally passionate about merging that business with community and inclusivity and not shying away from standing for something I believe in for the sake of a “brand”. 

+ a bonus takeaway, Carly's favorite quarantine recipe:

Early Grey Yogurt Cake:
1 cup vegetable oil, plus more for pan
2 cups (250 g) all-purpose flour
1½ tsp. Diamond Crystal or 1 tsp. Morton kosher salt
½ tsp. baking powder
½ tsp. baking soda
2 large eggs
1¼ cups (250 g) granulated sugar
1 cup plain whole-milk yogurt
3 Tbsp. loose-leaf Earl Grey tea or ¼ cup tea from bags
2 tsp. vanilla extract
1 Tbsp. raw or granulated sugar

Directions - (1)  Preheat oven to 325°.  Lightly coat a 9x5" or 8½x4½" loaf pan with vegetable oil and line with parchment paper, leaving overhang on long sides.  (2)  Whisk 2 cups all-purpose flour, 1½ tsp. Diamond Crystal or 1 tsp. Morton kosher salt, ½ tsp. baking powder, and ½ tsp. baking soda in a medium bowl to combine.  (3)  Vigorously whisk 2 large eggs and 1¼ cups granulated sugar in a large bowl 1 minute (seriously, time it!); mixture should be pale yellow and frothy. Whisk in 1 cup plain whole-milk yogurt, 3 Tbsp. loose-leaf Earl Grey tea (or ¼ cup tea from bags), and 2 tsp. vanilla extract.  (4)  Gradually stream in 1 cup vegetable oil, whisking constantly until incorporated. Add dry ingredients and whisk to combine. Scrape batter into prepared pan and smooth top.  (5)  Sprinkle evenly with 1 Tbsp. raw or granulated sugar. Bake cake about 1 hour.  (6)  Cool for 15 minutes in pan.
