Winter Uniform

February 1, 2017

IlGrandeFavorito1

I’m going through a style crisis right now. I don’t know if it’s because I started working from home, if I spend too much time with Eléonore Klein or if I’m just finally catching up with trends, but I’m starting to leave my favorite retro silhouette behind for more comfortable outfits. Since I’ve made my Safran jeans (super comfy with its 30% stretch) I’ve been wearing them at least three days a week, with a flannel shirt or a big cosy sweater. Sewing-wise, I’m dreaming of Grainline Studio patterns, which I used to disregard as too boxy for me. And I picked up knitting again!

Deer&Doe: the Safran jeans

September 1, 2016

Safran_5

The new pattern by Deer&Doe was released last week! No collection this time, but a single pattern on which we spent a lot of effort: the Safran jeans/pants. I am a bit late to show you my version, as my life is currently pretty chaotic trying to move both across the US and back to France at the same time (long story)… But I’m still going to tell you a bit about it!

zephyr-skirt4

The project I am showing today is so basic that I wasn’t sure it deserved a blog post by itself. It’s a simple Zéphyr skirt, made out of a coral scuba. You know, scuba, this technical fabric that creates voluminous clothing that could almost stand up by itself, like the skirts and dresses made by Sandra, Eléonore, or Jolies Bobines? But wait, my skirt drapes very differently from these, the fabric is much more fluid… What’s the deal with that? Well it turns out that even though the words seem to be used interchangeably pretty much everywhere, scuba and neoprene are actually two very different fabrics!

Mélilot and the not-so-great fabric

June 16, 2016

chambray-melilot2

Since I finished my rayon Mélilot, I have worn it a lot. It is super comfortable, and goes well with both high-waisted skirts and pants. I wanted to make another one, and I decided to try version B, the one with the cuffs and mandarin collar.

Deer&Doe: the Lupin jacket

March 30, 2016

Lupin1

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?
