Remember my Fabric Project "Mint Ice Cream" post with Marni inspiration and my original sketch?
Well, I was anxious to complete it for my anticipated trip to Emerald City, the land of pine trees and rainy climate.
So, the last days before my departure were truly hectic, running circles in my studio, going through several production stages of my Marni-inspired dress and getting it all together. The smart term "production stages" involves creating a pattern for a garment, cutting out fabric, initial sewing, rough fitting, finishing and final fitting--all in ONE day for me. Now the hassle is over, so I can sit back and post on the blog, while sipping my coffee at Starbucks...
So, here it is, my look of the day for you!
Dress: Designed and sewn by me| Trench coat: Burburry| Shoes: Steve Madden| Watch: Michael Kors| Necklace: Vintage gold
