Since I first saw the Yves Saint Laurent + Halston Exhibit back in February I’ve been dreaming of sewing up a YSL Creation of my own.   I fell for this elegant tunic, sash and slim pant as soon as I saw the line art on the cover of Yves Saint Laurent’s V2180.   I bought this out of print Vogue Paris Original on Etsy from Chloe’s Closet which has a huge selection of Vintage Patterns.  My vision was to make this out of a light and airy fabric perfect for the heat of our Florida summers.

The fabric is a luscious organic cotton batiste.  For this season’s make for Organic Cotton Plus, I wanted to try out a fabric I hadn’t used before.  This Batiste is lightweight and almost sheer which makes it perfect for our climate here in Florida.  I used two layers for the pants (sewn as one) to make them more opaque and left the sheerness for the jacket which has its own interior facing.   I also dyed the pants a soft mauve grey to mimic the inspiration drawing on the pattern.  This fabric was so lovely to work with and pressed beautifully.  Airy but still easy to sew up.  Perfect combo!

I love sewing from Vogue Patterns- I learn a new technique every time I make one of the designer patterns.  This pattern has a beautifully designed interior facing made in two parts as well as lovely mitered vents on the sides. The back also has a center seam with a pleat added on the interior facing for ease of movement.  I cut this in a straight 16 (38-30-40).  I was taking no chances on the sizing.  I find the vintage patterns tend to be more true to actual measurements then some of the newer patterns.
