It's All In The Details
We can make a million basic t-shirts, and in the end, that's all they will be. Utilitarian, but with no spark, unless a detail is added. Every garment would be just a basic garment if it weren't for that special little detail that catches the eye.
Spider web stitching and artfully placed cut outs add interest to a basic black dress.
Pattern Magic 2 by Tomoko Nakamichi along with many other fabulous detail ideas.
A basic raglan sleeved top accented with zippers. It looks as though the zipper goes from the front to the back. Since this is from St, Laurent, I would imagine that the top is cashmere, so not so basic ;)
The back of a basic jacket given a special touch with the smocking detail. It wouldn't need to be this detailed, just a touch would be nice.
The detail on the skirt is the same as what I did on my French jacket.
I plan to wear this soon, so it will be in an upcoming Me Made Monday post with more pictures.
Have a lovely week!
