Chiara, or the dress from hell

January 27, 2019

As I was saying last week, my biggest fail of the year was this Chiara dress I wore on the 4th of July. A little bit of context to start: every year, for the 4th of July, I try to sew a red, white and blue outfit to celebrate (in previous episodes…). In 2017, I had set my sights on this white fabric embroidered with red and blue starts, and the Chiara dress from Wear Lemonade, a brand of patterns I hadn’t tried yet, despite having subscribed to their PDF club for a few months. Unfortunately, after several long evenings struggling to finish it on time, I thought it was such a disaster that I abandoned it with only the zipper left to insert. For July 4th 2018, I decided to take it out from the back of the closet and finish it to be able to wear it at least once, and talk about it here!

My Christmas Skirt

December 1, 2018

Two years ago, I made a Rosari skirt in denim. I thought I would wear it mainly in the spring, with a t-shirt and sneakers, but it quickly became a staple of my winter wardrobe paired with opaque tights. I wanted to make a new version in a true seasonal fabric: forest green velvet, perfect for the holidays!

Deer&Doe: the Opium Coat

November 25, 2018

Sometimes after a Deer&Doe photoshoot I can bring home some of the samples that we are not going to use again and add them to my wardrobe. Alas, that wasn’t the case with Opium! The coat was so popular at work that everybody wanted one. Brigitte, our wonderful model and coworking colleague got the cream-colored one, and Eléonore the one with the belt. Poor me, who ended up coatless! So since we needed to take pictures for tutorials on the blog, I used this as an excuse to sew a new version 😉
