Pinstriped Laura

Millau, New York...






I wanted to have something sophisticated to wear in Barcelona this autumn , as I usually am casual here in southern France, chasing my toddler. I have always loved the Laura pattern so I thought I would give it a whirl. The deciding factor to success with this pattern would have to be correctly choosing a size, I had previously not known the allowance was so large and had ended up with some unworn large projects.

Anyhow I LOVE how this turned out ! I feel like a super naughty secretary in it.
The buttons are vintage .

Material Notes

Just some cheap fabric i had around wool suiting. The lining was an old bedspread, but you cant really see it.




Garment Type
Corduroy, Suiting, Wool
