Every winter when it starts getting cold, I become completely obsessed with velvet clothing. I collect inspiration pictures on a dedicated Pinterest board, and one of my favorites is this Urban Outfitters turtleneck top in silver velvet, which is a fun and casual take on an otherwise pretty dramatic fabric. During my latest Fabric.com order I was a few dollars short from getting free shipping, and, thinking back on this outfit I decided to throw in a yard and a half of silver crushed velvet, in the hope of recreating something like it. Upon consideration I figured a scoop neck would be easier to wear than a turtleneck, especially in such a cheap non-breathable fabric, and I decided for the Nettie bodysuit which I had gotten in a PDF bundle a while ago.
Sewing – Finished Objects
For New Year, I took a week off and went on vacation to the beach. In December it’s definitely cheaper than going skiing, but when it’s below freezing there’s no way to go for a swim. So since I had time to spare I took advantage of the occasion to take pictures of my new hat!
I mentioned in the previous post my love for Telio fabrics. Here’s my latest favorite: this wonderful navy rayon voile with flamingo silhouettes in white with coral accents. Deep colors, a soft and drapey hand, and my favorite americana symbol (I think it’s time for a “flamingos” tag on this blog!), what more could I ask for? 🙂
With the end of the year approaching quickly, it’s time for me to get out of hibernation and catch up on some projects from this summer! In particular I wanted to talk about this dress which was hands down my favorite from 2017 🙂
