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.
I love trying out fabric from Organic Cotton Plus. The navy fabric I used for this romper is probably my favorite that I've tried from them so far. I love the print, and it's so soft! There is also a similar print that I really wanted to try that looks like it's from the same line. It's called Fox in the Foxgloves.
Our Thoughts: Beth at 110 Creations made a lovely sleeveless Blazer to compliment her bump using Grey Twill and Pink Batiste.
We've all done it. Made a pattern that we loved, plotted 50 more versions, then instantly moved on to "ooooo shiny!" and neglected the tried and true. I made my first Victoria Blazer almost exactly two years ago...eep! I LOVE that blazer, it's one of my favorite things I've ever made. For all that time, I've been wanting to make a second (and third...) and I finally did!
