A kurta — an Indian-style top — in a paisley fabric. The pattern is Vogue 8117 (now discontinued). A few years ago I decided to make my own “ethnic” clothes because the quality and fit of those available overseas, especially in India, is so poor. I made two that were very successful and became favourite garments. Now I have made another, the first for more than 4 years.
My fabric is Mark by Liberty of London. The colour is horrible but it is Liberty and it was going cheap on eBay (UK).
One of the most beloved American designers passed last night. We look back at a few of his designs.
