It’s been a while since I posted here, for lack of time but especially motivation. However, I have sewn a lot since last November, and I’m a little disappointed not to have this archive of my projects. So I’m taking advantage of the release of the Dressed e-book (which took us so much energy – I’m can’t even tell you how relieved I am that it is finally out!) to do a recap of the projects of this book that I sewn for myself. Be warned, it will be a long read!
Are you getting some kind of déjà vu? Well that’s because it’s my second Mélilot shirt in a flamingo print, after this one. Clearly I have very specific tastes 😀
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? 🙂
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 consequences of that move were quickly noticeable: no more of this stifling carolinian heat, Boston is COLD. As soon as I arrived, I instantly felt the need for a warm, cosy, flannel shirt.
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.
