So in my last post I said that I’d be making the Vogue 8993 and as I was pinning it out – up popped the Flora into my head. Last year I made 4 silk Flora inspired bridesmaid dresses and they worked beautifully – patterns swapped and this was a dream to make. Using a deep dark navy silk dupion from the Silk Society as piping around the neck line, arms and waist – do love piping. Just hand stitching the lining and hem to finish.
Now to find a jacket – probably a cardigan and make the hat! I’m a trained milliner and had to give up working as a milliner after major surgery 8 years ago. Anyway a little fascinator is well on its way and have had fun making flowers out of left over bias and piping, just have to find my feathers tomorrow. Will post a photo next week on the day!
