Inspiration for Spring and Summer

Here's a little more inspiration from Anthropologie:

This is the Khasia silk shell.  I like the patchwork effect of this top.  What a great way to use up smallish pieces of fabric.  At $198.00, this would be an instance where it would certainly be fun to duplicate the look for far less money.  Other features are the embroidery at the neckline and the binding around the neck.    Here's a link to a youtube video for applying the bias binding
How to Bind a Neckline.   Here's a link on how to make your own bias binding - How to Make Bias Binding.

This is the Frangipani Peasant Top.  Isn't this a lovely top?  Such a feminine look with the florals and lace.  At $395.00, this would certainly be a top to duplicate.  Here's some tips on sewing lace and fabric Sewing with Lace Tips and Tricks

This is the Buttoned Lace Midi Blouse.  This blouse has a lot of features - beading at the neckline or it could be tiny pompoms, lace, folded wave tucks, hidden button placket, and beaded insertions.  At $198.00,  this is another blouse that would be fun to duplicate.  Here's a link for how to do the tucks - How To Make Wave Tucks.

I would love to hear if you decided to do any of these techniques.

Happy Sewing!
