When I saw this fabric it immediately made me think of the winter Dolce Gabbana collection. The outfit is so high fashion it knocks your tights off! I am smitten with the moss green colour and the snowflake knit pattern. I love the ruffles and shape of the jacket. It is especially great on short waisted women and it add a delightful volume to small breasts. The skirt goes below the knee and it cut in a chevron pattern with stripes lining up. The orange and the black trim are velvet ribbons sewn on adding contrast and highlights.
Veste $179 et Jupe $160
This dress is a special piece. From a sewing perspective it is difficult to make since the whole dress has to be completed before the wool appliquee can be stitched on. The stripes make the full circumference of the neckline lightly contouring the shoulder and the top of the sleeve. I made it in black and dark blue. There are still a few left (though not many, sorry for posting a picture so late!) and it retails for $165.
