Trend Spring 2012 color blocking

Plumbing issues are keeping any progress on the jackets at bay, but here are some really interesting color blocking ideas from Net-a-Porter.  These are a terrific use of fabrics that you loved but don't have enough left over to make anything from.

Preen has a stretch satin body and jersey sleeves, the Giambattista top is actually a knit but can be made up in practically any fabric.
Elizabeth and James - Silk Chiffon
DVF - Silk Crepe
Victoria Beckham - Jersey
Chloe - Silk Crepe

Color Blocking spring 2012

So get back to that stash and see what leftovers you have, they're not just for stuffing small sewing projects.

I tried to post on the 8804 page, but couldn't find a button.
The front sleeve on 8804 is on a slight bias. There are hand-sewn darts on the back lining to "shrink" out some of the fullness.

Thank you for reviewing my patterns.
