I haven’t done a sewing inspiration post for a while now and I love reading other blogger’s inspiration posts. I always tell myself to write the blog I would like to read, so here I go
I don’t know if it’s all those leaves and pumpkins everywhere but I am having a serious yellow crush. I want a yellow coat, yellow sweater, a pair of yellow doc martens and maybe a yellow scarf too :)
I love the used blanket texture and the over-sized fit of this Diane von Fustenberg coat.
I am really getting into oversized, androgynous shapes lately. This coat has the volume of a coat from the 80s, but the cut is cleaner. It would even be minimalistic if you ignore the red accent and shiny buttons. But I like those too :)
Grey Peter Pan Collars
Another two elements that seem to repeat in what I pin or see around and think: “I’ve got to make that!” are Peter Pan collars. Especially if they’re grey or attached to grey blouses. What I like about this top is that the wool makes it look stiff, but the cut and the roundness of the collar give it a certain sweetness. Nice contrast.
