Having acquired a lovely bag of fabric from New York, I have some projects to catch up on. Here is what I plan on making with some of it!
A few months ago I tried on this top on the left from Zara. It, however, had a large pen mark on it that would never come out (and they refused to mark down the price for me). I tried it on in a large, which surprisingly ended up being the perfect loose button-down. I have abandoned the idea of recreating the gathered collar in favor of a more classic shirt collar, but will be using the same slightly buttery white color (silk) and tiny mother of pearl buttons. I plan to do the blouse with a subtly scooped hem and longer length, like Chiara's shirt on the right, so wear with skinny jeans or to blouse out of a skirt or shorts.
I've been obsessed with this sweater ever since Carol posted about it (by Rag & Bone). The texture and shape are great. I have a nubby black and white wool knit that would make a great "sweater tee" - either that or something looser and secured with a decorative clasp.
More to come soon!
