Flamingos obsession

December 27, 2017

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? ūüôā

My recent adventures led me to leave North Carolina to move to Boston with my husband… well for the half of the year when I won’t be in France working on Deer&Doe’s many projects, that is!

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

Yet another pattern from Deer&Doe! This new one, called Bruyère, is a full-on shirt with collar and cuffs and all that. Where it differs from other shirt patterns is that it is made to flatter hourglass figures, so it has a fitted waistband and inverted pleats in the front and back. So, wanna see the results of my pattern testing?
