Naomi, My Naomi!

New York, New Yo...






I felt that I didn’t have any excuses not to make the Naomi coat, pattern that was inspired by my idea and worn by Naomi Campbell. I really enjoy how it came out, although it wasn’t very easy! It makes a nice summer cover-up. Originaly I wanted to make it nautical; blue and some white accents, but while fabric shopping I saw this natural tone cotton with white and gold stripes, I Knew it was ment for my Naomi. Since I already spend some time searching for the shell and ship pictures for my nautical embroidery I decided to apply them as well. Overall I think this way is better than my original idea.

Technicaly it wasn’t the easiest thing to make, but not the hardest either. I managed to attach the tie-belts, but I am not shure if that is how BurdaStyle ment it.

    Hi, I love this jacket pattern and am hoping to make one (a shortened version) to go over a dress for a wedding I am attending in a couple of weeks, would you say that the sizes are ok or should I go down one from my normal size?

    While I’m here I want to tell you how much I love the Kasia Skirt pattern as well, it’s really cool.

    Thanks Candy

    Too difficult for me now, but maybe next year. So clever and elegant!

    I think it looks great. Of course, you just had to make Naomi ;) I’m quite impressed with the detailed embroidery as well.

    Looks great, especially matched with your skinny jeans. It’s really beautiful.

    Thank you! I don’t have an embroidery machine, I did it on a regular sewing machine. I saw the technique on Martha Steward Show a while ago, it gives the embroidery very polished finish. Find the “freehand embroidery” instructions here It is simple, but time consumming. I changed it a little; instead of tracing the image I pinned very thin pice of paper with a printed image to the right side of fabric and sew directly over it, I didn’t use stabilizer. To easily rip the paper hold it between your hands and rub it against itself to wrinkle the paper.

    I love it! That’s great! And I love those embroidery details. How do you do this? Whith some specific foot? Or do you have a embroidery machine?
