The sewing blogs are ablaze with the new season summer Vogues. The LINK Here in the southern hemisphere they haven't hit the catalogues yet and will not be available in the stores for months and months. This used to frustrate me no end in the pre - internet days. Now I can buy them straight away ....... moohoohaha. I usually resist but one in particular will be flying this way very soon. The gorgeous gorgeous Issey Miyake top and pants.
I would have to buy some dramatic silk habutae, on the stiff and crackly side .. the sort of material that looks like a giant plaid tablecloth.. and the matching silk pants. I've never made silk pants in my life and I've got a big number birthday in a couple of months.
Another item like but won't fool myself into thinking I could ever wear is this.
Then there's this very sophia Loren number.
Even the line drawing is exquisite.
I also like this quirky hoodie dress for Magpie (football club) supporters.
If I make it it would be in the more practical but less dramatic version here, for hot summer days, in linen.
