Black and Blue

Posted on

I was in a blue mood the other day…not sad, but rather I wanted to sew with this stunning Kingfisher Blue silk taffeta.  Black and blue has been all over the runways for Fall.  So I made not one, but two fashions.
First, a coat ensemble in an Asian floral print in blue and black touched with gold.  The coat has bracelet length sleeves, a funnel collar and faceted cobalt blue buttons.  It is fully lined in Kingfisher silk.  The coordinating cocktail sheath is made of black silk dupioni with a ruched silk cummerbund and bow detail in Kingfisher silk.  A band hat of feathers provides the dramatic finishing touch.


Second, a chic little lace cocktail sheath in Kingfisher Blue silk taffeta overlaid with exquisite black lace.  A large taffeta bow and brooch detail adds interest and bling to the shoulder.

If you are interested in purchasing one or both of these fashions, please email me at
