olive (toile)

Added Jul 10, 2011

Melbourne, Austr...






This was the wearable toile that my ‘hoodwinked’ project arose from. I learnt from this first attempt how to adjust the pattern to fit a western body. Despite the gaping at the front and the slightly-shorter-than-I-wanted-it body, it had lots and lots of wear during the Melbourne autumn.

Material Notes

Scrap wool, reused button


Garment Type

    I love this! (And the colour goes very well with your hair, I think :) )

    I love it! Tulle, an LA based women’s rtw company, has a jacket fairly similar to this for their fall 2011 collection. You are so a la mode!!
