Appliqué, there’s an old idea.
I seem to remember my mother talking about this technique, as she was excellent with a sewing machine.
I adore flowers but struggle with excessive floral patterns when it comes to clothing. Admire it on others? Yes. Wear it myself? Infrequently. The summer months find me in a more adventurous spirit but generally, patterns and floral are not my regular go-to.
As I often do in the mornings, I search out new designers and fashion ideas to discuss here – today I intended to start talking about all things weddings and what to wear. My daughter is getting married next year so it is on my mind but instead; I stumbled upon a fabulous designer who has mastered the art of appliqué in a way I love. This skirt must be mine. The whimsy of the flowers is the perfect amount of floral for me, right about now and I could wear this with a very simple black or white tee and 3/4 coat if need be.
The wedding chat can wait and maybe even this dress could be an option for a pre-wedding party. The dinner before the dinner before, I am thinking. It would look equally good dressed up or down.
Was appliqué reserved for children’s clothing back in the day?
I can’t remember but it is a pretty addition to the wardrobe and one of those that can be enough without being too much. Know what I mean? xv
