- I love Esme Young! She is my new style icon!
When I are they going to give us the “What Esme Wore” segment of the Great British Sewing Bee? I need at least 5 minutes, of each episode, to include a detailed look at what she is wearing, her accessories and details. I love her style! Here are some lousy screen grabs of some of her outfits.
- She wears a lot of simple A-line silhouettes in neutral colours and then jazzes them up with amazing neck details. Makes sense, given that most of the filming is head and shoulders. She is committed to a good flat and usually has fabulous jewellery. Watch out for her rings. Who else wants to know more about Esme Young’s clothes?
- I loved the coat dress with ribbed collars and cuffs she wore this week. I need more information!
- I think a ribbed collar would be another great hack for the Pilvi coat.
Progress on the Wardrobe Architect Series and My Sewing
- I’m still following (and loving) the Wardrobe Architect series. I’ve blogged about my core style and key silhouettes. I’m currently working on my colour story. It’s so tough because I love all the colours! It was very difficult to narrow down my colour story. I’m working on it: I’ll blog my colour palette preferences on Monday.
- I made another Washi Dress. I will have the full details up on the blog on Saturday. This one has a double layer for the skirt.
- I’ve been trying on tops. Trying to find a simple silhouette that is flattering. I don’t think a dropped shoulder suits my tiny shoulders/big bust very well but I’m experimenting.
- This top has a very narrow sleeve, dropped shoulder and curved side seam. Not quite a dolman, which is good; I don’t like too much fabric under my arm.
- This was not a stretch fabric. It was interesting. Not perfect, but one to add to the Dressmaking Detective files.
