It has the look of a fine Persian though it is, in fact, a cloque that is woven in such a way to give just the right texture to this skirt with its double, and extra deep, inverted pleats.

The jacket sewn with a toasty wool velour adds shape due to the faux peplum and cut-on tabs at the waistline to enhance a charming hour-glass figure. A counterweight to the look is the shape of the sleeve that is cut wide at the upper arm and tapers to the sleeve hem. A fashion forward combination with this style is to pair it with the pistachio green trousers.

Aside from the sensational silk print, the focus for this dress is pulled to the cut-on standing collar that is gathered using an elastic sewing thread. A band at the waistline adds definition and the sleeve hems are drawn in.

Give your next bohemian look a sexy masculine touch with a hint of Irish flare with this double breasted vest featuring flap pockets and adjustable tabs in back.


118-082016-B

Pleated ruffles at the sleeves and on the gathered skirt swing softly with every step. The squared panels in the front sides and sewn on tying bands at the waistline draw the dress, sewn in a gossamer chiffon, into shape.


117-082016-B

A chiffon with a lurex thread interwoven adds a luminous touch to this dress with its floating, high-low midi skirt. Panels in the bodice front are sewn in a terry velour and outlined with golden piping along the seam line to enhance the shape of a cropped bolero jacket.


115-082016-2-B

Polished silver buttons on the shawl collar, as well as wide strips of leather on the sleeves give a look that leans toward the elements defining a uniform-style jacket. The jacquard fabric in a kilim print adds an exotic flair and a soft touch.

Shimmering velvet and a waistband that is extended and rounded are wonderfully fresh details for these trousers with pleats and hip pockets accents. Clothing sewn in velvet should always be hung in order to avoid folds and wrinkles that are not able to be pressed out. They are also a “no-go” for the washing machine! Either have a pieces washed by a professional dry cleaner or carefully wash them in lukewarm water, taking care not to wring them.

The dreamy blouse of the striking Indian burnout fabric is unbroken by panel seams, letting it drape for a beautifully relaxed style. The long and shaped cuffs are closed with buttons and the neckline is bound with a solid color trim.

The stylish alternative to the jacket this season, is this super-warm top sewn with an imitation sheepskin, for a look that nods toward polar regions. The shoulder seams and pocket openings are decorated with self-crocheted trim and the neckline is finished with a decorative stitch and yarn. For those not wishing to crochet their own accents, bohemian-style trims can also be purchased and segmented in or top-stitched in place.


104-082016-B

This style is sewn in a dramatic cherry red mesh that is ruffled along the front placket and at the sleeve hems in a look reminiscent of a Spanish flamenco blouse. The fabric doesn’t fray, which allows the hem edges to remain unfinished – for a wonderfully beautiful drape.

This cape is perfect for the first chilly days as the season changes. Slightly flared with an oversize hood, it includes patch pockets and a concealed button placket. Fashionistas whose wardrobe includes lots of dresses and breezy blouses will especially love this piece as it minimizes wrinkles, unlike a restrictive jacket or coat might do, because it swings wide at the lower hem. Wear it with heels so avoid looking swallowed by the cape!
