Creation: Yves Saint Laurent V2180 Tunic, Sash, & Pants

Fabrics Used: White Batiste, 3/4" Polished River Shell buttons

The Visionary: Rebecca, SewPomona

Our Thoughts: Rebecca used our white batiste to create this lovely tunic, sash & pants. How elegant!

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.

My orchid flannel shirt is finished. I couldn't be more pleased with it.

I had originally intended to add breast pockets to the shirt fronts and got as far as making them (though not the flaps). But this organic flannel is so thick -- I'd label it chamois, really -- that it would have added too much bulk to an area where I'm already somewhat bulky.

I think a men's shirt looks more elegant without pockets, don't you?

I've worked with flannel in the past, but never flannel this thick and luxurious. I interfaced only the outward-facing collar stand and collar, skipping the front button placket and cuffs, which didn't need the extra body. The fabric was very easy to work with.
