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

The Boston Shirt

October 3, 2016


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!

Deer&Doe: the Mélilot shirt

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?
