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.
