I love this designer, Koos Van Den Akker. His clothes are always so happy, architecturally designed, and crazy wild. hmmm. My first experience in sewing with him was my Spring Coat. You really have to pay attention and plan ahead. I even take notes and do a color sketch first to help me along since there are so many pieces and color arrangements to juggle.
Here's my second Koos extravaganza, the Big Dress:
|As the Koos turns...|
|and comes around.|
You probably can't tell, but this is made from 4 different fabrics, 5 counting the ribbon ruffle, with all kinds of appliques, inserts, bands and tomfoolery. You can see it up close and in detail if you click on the bold items or go to Clothes for Spring page.
I'll be joining Les Visibles at Patti's Not Dead Yet Style and the crowd at Monday Mingle too. Join us!
