Love to get some feedback.

I love fabrics and clothes but really not the catwalk glamour kind.What I love are homemade style and unusual designers who make ageless and comfortable clothes for all types of women. I love antique lace and pretty things like ribbons and other embelishments. Ethnic clothes and all kinds of embroidery interest me and I love to look at piantings for inspiration too.All dress is fancy dress if you like as we are born nude Ha ! Ha!
So please if you have any comments ,ideas or favourites let me know,hope you enjoy Sweet Disorder!

Thought of Spring

Not time yet to don the sandals and put away the warm boots!I think I shall still keep my furry boots on for a while!

I have been sewing away with the new Janome which I bought myself when my old Husqvarna screwed up once to often,ok" a bad workman blames his tools" but it was a very elderly machine.

Inge De Jonge always has some gorgeous feminine clothes to remind me of warmer days.

I like the neckline of this lovely blouse ,it has an feeling of the fashions during WW1.

Ostebro is another Scandinavian fashion house that has some gorgeous clothes.
I have never found anything from Britain to rival the Scandinavian ,French and Italian designers of romantic clothes,
Please someone prove me wrong!

This is from Oskander and I love the simplicity.
I am sewing now and have two dresses on the go I will post pics when they are done . I would love to adapt this dress if I could find a wrap around pattern suitable.

Ivey Ibitz is a new discovery,very distinctive designs ,bespoke garments .The style is very Downton Abbey.

I have made two  dresses and a pair of harem pants towards my spring and summer wardrobe and hope to start a blouse tomorrow,it is a top with  a peplum and long sleeves. 
Well I hope there are some ideas here  to please and entice!
If Winter comes ,can Spring be far behind?
