A sweet friend recently sent me this wonderful publication that is unavailable for purchase in the U.S. and oh, how I wish we had something like Mrs. Style Book 2015 here! Full of inspiration, beautiful photographs of lovely models wearing the beautiful clothes, coupled with patterns for all the photos shown in this magazine like book, it is truly an amazing publication. There are 2 knit patterns included in this issue. ALL the rest of the patterns (and there is a LOT) you draft yourself beginning with a basic bodice pattern for the tops and waist/hip measurements for bottoms. I am still figuring out how this all works, as it is written in Japanese...... but look at that cute yellow top on the front!
May's Alabama Chanin 4-panel skirt was made but not embroidered because.....
new Ottobre no. 10 Sculpture top and I've been afraid the embroidery might detract from the overall 'look' of this outfit. I might change my mind, but for now it will stay unembroidered. I do plan to hand-stitch top-stitch the seams as a faux flat fell.
Happy Sewing Everyone..... and hope everyone is having a good day, wherever you may be!
