My sewing projects grow more and more ambitious. I'm not that good at sewing yet, but my creativity can't wait! So, in the last few months I've not just recycled old clothes, but also designed some brand new ones.
I purchased the fabric from Les coupons de Saint Pierre, a magical shop near Montmartre, in Paris. Well, my first plan was to go to Paris, and come back with a luggage full of fabric; then I actually went to Paris, and realized it was kind of impractical. So I just ordered it online. Great service, if you want to give it a try!
The first one above is a long shirt, to wear as a light overcoat. I'm thinking about adding a hood - I adore hoods! -, and that's the reason why it may seem there is more fabric than necessary around the neckline. In order to Do It Youself, you can follow the sewing icon I (totally) made up for you!
The second one - shown on top of the first because it's impossible to take a decent picture of white, transparent cotton -, is again a light overcoat, but sleeveless and buttonless. It is much more refined though: empire line and flare effect.
...again, I've added a non-label, because I'm no logo, after all!
Now, if you want to Do It Yourself, I just mixed up this tutorial (italian) for the top, and this for the flare effect (english), or the bottom.
I hope I have inspired you a little! Have a nice day and...stay tuned!
