I wear a second piece of clothe sewn by myself! That time, I have made this sparrow shirt. I used the Maeva pattern from République du Chiffon made with the Swallow fabric from Atelier Brunette and a simple black one for the collar.
I have spent hours on this shirt and undone some parts 4 times to have nice finishings. One of the main difficulties was linked to this print fabric, starting with the fabric-cutting. If the fabric is not perfectly on the straight-grain, the swallows won’t be perfectly aligned, will run diagonally and the cutting needs to be accurate if you want the birds to be aligned horizontally and vertically on the final piece of clothe.
The bag comes from Pretty Wire, it looks like the Trio bag from Céline (unfordable), the leather is nice and of good quality. But there is a zipper on one of the side of the bag and it is not showing on the e-shop pictures. Moreover, the metal pieces of the strap are not perfectly gold but a bit blackened. I’m quite disappointed of the quality.
The necklace is from Melochkaia, a French jewelleries designer. I do love her universe: colorful and simple jewelleries that sublimates all the outfits.
Otherwise, I haven’t found the perfect blazer that fits to Petites, but I am working on it! Mine is a tailor made from Dubai, so perfectly adjusted to my size!
