Monday Morning Inspiration
Well, Monday morning has slid into Monday afternoon. So sorry, I should have had myself a little more together this morning. An early morning appointment had me out of the house before I was able to finish my post.
This past weekend I was in St. Louis and saw the production of The Magic Flute for which Issac Mizrahi designed the costumes and directed the opera. I was able to find lots of info, so I'll do a separate post about the production. Needless to say, it was absolutely delightful and the costumes were fabulous.
I've been doing a little research on pocket inspiration and thought I would share a few ideas with you. Anything that adds a little unexpected twist to a garment is pure delight for me and pockets are the perfect place to add unexpected interest. Like the pleated and molded pocket below.
An unexpected round breast pocket.
Pretty ruffle detail that floats into the pocket.
This is a great pocket. It seems to float in space. A must try. Don't worry, when I do, I'll share the process!!
Vintage garments are always a great source for pocket inspiration.
I love how the zipper has become a decorative detail on this pocket.
The pockets become the focal point on this very simple dress.
Without the arrow heads, the pockets could be lost.
Beautiful tulip design highlighted with bias trim.
The binding forms a bow.
A double row of lips accents this welt pocket.
And finally, such a pretty design from Jeanne Lanvin. Princess line seams are the perfect place to add pockets and show off a design.
Hope your week is off to a great start. I have a lot to share with you this week, so I'll be back soon!!
