I decided I needed a racerback tank shirt as well as the many previous dresses. I found this fabric in my stash, a tablecloth. It’s got quite a few colours in it and I have a bunch of different colourful bottoms it will go with (okay, and Second Yoga jeans too!). I decided to try a high-low hem but I had to unpick my original 1" hem and go for a 1/4" hem instead – the curve of the cloth did not work with thicker hem. This turned out to be an easy breezy summer top and I think it will get a lot of wear.
One of the most beloved American designers passed last night. We look back at a few of his designs.
