New York, New Yo...
this week at sew weekly, mena got us all gussied up for the royal wedding.
my attempts to keep my hat on were almost successful… more on that, and more pictures, at oonaballoona: hat’s off
i used simplicity 2473, a project runway patterns. i like these patterns, it’s very easy to mix & match the pieces you want.
i used self covered fabric buttons which were SO much fun to make. unfortunately, getting them in a straight line with my self made loops was unsuccessful. oh well, at least they’re not in the front!
i did away with the bodice zip, totally inspired by pampula’s nude pearl dress buttoned back.
Trousers, blazers, and blouses in cool neutrals have model-off-duty style.
