Blouson Dress

It does look like a skirt and a top. But guess what? Its a dress. Meant to be made for my birthday last year  it was this year that it finally got done. After abandoning it for quite sometime, I’m glad I’ve finally finished it. My initial sketch was that of a raglan sleeved bodice […]

My previous post was about the wearable muslin of my palazzo pants. Here’s the final ensemble with a slight deviation(the neckline) from my design sketch. The pants are most comfortable.

Palazzo Pants: The Story of the Wearable Muslin

A few months ago I indulged in some frenzied buying of viscose since I fell in love with the drape. I bought some lovely prints.  I’ve always loved palazzo pants. Only I had never owned any.
