Back is Back to Business

Sexy Chocolat.
That’s the variation I chose for my first Vanessa Pouzet’s Back is back, and it gave me headaches !
After many trial & errors on my muslin, I think I managed to achieve something wearable, but quite different from what I had in mind for this best seller. Despite the approximate fit, it’s comfortable, simple and chic in black plumetis cotton voile and silver piping, and still office-compliant with a blazer.

      Thank you Mary! The trousers are super stylish ! But not home made. I will have a try and make a similar pair, if you have any pattern suggestion? For the top, when I look at the pictures, I think it’s not that bad finally!

      Check out my post on burdas high waisted capris, it’s a Fab pattern and I actually thought that’s what you had used until I read your post. I am on pair 8 at the moment as I love them. I’m even featured this week wearing them x
