Gingham fix

Back in March I traveled to New Orleans to attend a great wedding (I’ll show you the dress I wore soon) and I took the opportunity to visit one of my favorites stores in the whole world: Trashy Diva. They carry their own retro clothing line, with 40s and 50s influences, exactly what I like to wear. Actually when we entered the shop my husband said to me “Oh I see… Everything here looks like stuff you’ve made..!”. I guess my taste in clothing is consistent!

Over the last few weeks, projects made from the new Deer&Doe patterns have started popping up all over the place, and that makes me really happy. On my front I have finally been able to finish and photograph my version of the Lupin jacket, and I’m taking this opportunity to answer a question that has been asked a lot: can you wear it closed?

Deer&Doe: the Mélilot shirt

The second pattern of the Deer&Doe spring-summer 2016 collection that I wanted to show you is the Mélilot shirt. Even though they are the same type of garment, Mélilot is very different from Deer&Doe’s previous shirt pattern, Bruyère (which I had made here, and also for the Deer&Doe blog here). It is both more casual – Bruyère has a structured waistband while Mélilot is loose and flowy – and more technical: a collar with collar stand, sleeve plackets, french seams everywhere, every detail is perfect.

Here is is, the new spring-summer 2016 collection from Deer&Doe! This collection is very special to me because it is the first since I started working with Eléonore :) Even though she is the one who does all the pattern design, I was closely involved with the creation process and I am pretty overwhelmed by what a warm welcome the patterns have been getting! Anyways, I love these patterns, so much that I managed to snatch a little free time in between sewing prototypes for the photoshoot and working on the new website to make my own versions! Today I’m showing you Zéphyr, the sleeveless knit skater dress :)
