Simple shapes

My golden rule of sewing; choose simple shapes and then make them up in the most beautiful fabric I can afford...simple shapes, beautiful fabric! 

Treasured patterns can be transformed over and over again using different textures, colours and print combinations.

Here the TRUCK STOP TOP has been completely transformed for a forthcoming shoot using a mixture of woven fabrics cut on the bias; a semi transparent silk cotton combined with a silky raw edge binding and heavy top stitching create a darker mood.

The silk cotton fabric for the body came from Tessuti in Melbourne.  I made the raw edge binding from some leftovers...second golden rule of sewing, never throw anything away!
