OOTD: Using the Stash for Cool Clothes

OOTD 08 03 2016 AOOTD 08 03 2016 B

I spent a lot of late Spring and early Summer raiding my stash and making simple garments for summer, and this one in particularly delights me. It was a big piece of slightly crepey silk that looks to have been hand dyed or at least if it was manufactured, done very artistically so that it has a nice, abstract expressionist feel.

I basically took the fabric, folded it in a square, cut the neckline, cut a slight curve to shape the one-piece sleeve/side,  faced the neckline (Artful Blasphemy hates facings, btw, but that doesn’t mean that they aren’t very important and sometimes the best choice–particularly when working with something so light and flowy) and used a small hem on the edges. Also, patterning facings is a skill that one must use or lose, so it was good practice. I did not use interfacing at all, again to maintain the flow.

Marble necklace again.

Yelete pants from Satan.

Pikolinos shoes.
