Pierrot and Moon Pants for Stylo

Let’s take a look at another outfit I designed for Stylo Magazine using the Cotton+Steel Bespoke Double Gauzes! (I blogged about the first outfit in this post).

KCWC sew-off challenge #4: Shirred Pierrot I made this Pierrot Tunic with fabric harvested from the ill-conceived “Prairie Girl Top” of Spring Top Week 2010 that I think I actually never wore.

Another Pierrot

I nearly forgot that I finished this a couple weeks ago. It’s another Pierrot top for Clementine, but this one is 18-24 months. Yes, friends, that means I have digitized/begun grading the pattern…please don’t get too hopeful as I feel like my work rate is currently roughly analogous to the flow of molasses outside. And
