Inspiration and Shop Talk

I have found more inspiration on the Neiman Marcus site. The tee to the left is a raglan sleeved tee with a twist. It has a smocked yoke with puffed sleeves. It sells for $55. Really, really cute. It is by XCVI. It would be fairly easy to recreate using Loes Hinse Boatneck Top or Textile Studio Santa Monica top as a starting point. Another idea for all of the ladies (and men) who enjoy smocking. Check out this company's website. There are more ideas for shirring.

Here is a top by St John's Sport. Really simple idea for using ribbon to enhance a very simple top. This top sells for $495. Any basic tee could be used to make a similar look.

Check out this lovely silk skirt by Harari Mitsa. It appears to be a slim gore skirt that starts flaring just above the knees. This skirt sells for $395. You could recreate this look using the View B version or maybe View E of Gore Skirt by Loes Hinse.

Ok, that's it for today.

Happy Sewing!
