I promised to post the beautiful clothes the Lucia at the Etsy shop Larimeloom made when they arrived. And here they are! This poncho is one of my favorite designs ever...so versatile. It can be worn as an off-the-shoulder top or as a skirt as well.
Here it is off-the-shoulder, though I did not take a picture of it as a skirt.
The weave of the fabric is wonderful...Lucia chooses textiles of exquisite quality, and her pieces are as tactile and well-structured as they are comfortable. This fabric is soft and just a little stretchy with a beautiful, rustic texture to it, and my favorite part is how she cut the neckline. Such a gorgeous drape.
These capris were originally designed in corduroy with a buttoned waist. I asked if she could make them in a jersey fabric so that I could use them for lounge pants and working in the studio (I often just stay in my PJs, to be honest...but sometimes it's nice to look a little less slovenly, even when you work at home!) Comfort is of essence when you're chasing a toddler around. Lucia made them from an ultra-soft woolly jersey in charcoal grey, and redesigned the waist so that it can be worn high, or folded down around the hips like yoga pants. I love the wide cuff around the calves.
These are more comfortable than sweatpants, and elegant enough to be worn out with a nice pair of boots.
I have had trouble making a link that works to the Larimeloom shop, but you can search it under Etsy sellers. Many of her designs are one-of-a-kind since she is constantly thinking up new pieces. Can you believe she doesn't even make patterns for most of these, just freestyles? I wish I had that kind of talent with a sewing machine.
