Is not what I am doing yet, but designer Dries van Noten certainly is doing this in a very inspiring way. Lindsay T and Carolyn already made beautiful garments inspired by his designs.
Last weekend Dries van Noten was the guest editor of the weekend-supplement that comes with our newspaper. And it was a great supplement, the skirt on the cover immediately caught my eye:
Think I will try to find some fabrics to make a skirt like this when I go to one of the fabric markets that are held now.
The picture of the front is from the Dries van Noten website. If you like mixing fabrics (which is rather new to me), do take a look at his website. Very inspiring.
And my actual ewing: very slow progress, hope to do some substantial work on the jacket this weekend. BUT: there is a forecast for beautiful weather, so I might be enjoying that instead of sewing inside the house.
