while the spring / summer collection is still in production (available early may), i couldn’t help but start on something else; more one of a kind pieces in various sizes. i like to fancy this palette on a girl visiting paris for the first time. she doesn’t have a lot of money and she isn’t wearing marni but she’s still turning heads. the bits and pieces from my fabric stash will be made up in the floppy skirt, pencil skirt, pintuck blouse, balloon sleeve blouse, drop sleeve tee and blouse, biba jacket and for fun a crushed silk scarf with the fleurs de pailette plastique (ok enough with the french already). these are from france in fact. i’ve had them for ages. some cute vintage buttons in there too! i’ll be sewing these over the next week or two and have them in the shop soon.
