I wanted to start a discussion about the fall designer fashions. I don’t shop much (except fabric & yarn shops!), but yesterday I went to the Short Hills Mall (very upscale mall in NJ) not to buy, but to look. What fun! What interested me most was the seam and hem finishes I saw in so many of the designs. Tahari & nicole miller both used a simple zigzag finish on seams and hems. I saw a lot of raw edges in seams – in 5000 dollar jackets! Also a lot of unlined jackets with the inside seams finished with grosgrain ribbon; lined in the sleeves and shoulders. What fun to wander through Chanel, etc. in Nieman Marcus! My husband couldn’t believe what prices these designs go for. I can’t wait to start copying some of the ideas – so easy for a sewer! I saw a beautiful Chanel long jacket I really want to copy!
I’d love to read others comments on what they’ve seen & what they’re going to make this year!
