Oh thank you all so very much for keeping me sane and all (most) admitting that you too remembered Rive Gauche – you really have no idea how reassuring all those comments were after that surreal episode in the fabric shop.
See the pic below. On the left – stitched and steamed and fitted to the mannequin. On the right – as nature intended – baggy and loose.
And the Rive Gauche blue?
For the lining, my dears, and the working sleeve hems to roll up and reveal the flash of colour. And I’ll look just like Claudia Winkleman from the Great British Sewing Bee.
Vented pockets with flaps
I have a similar coloured blouse made years ago which accidentally matches well. So I have my black and my colour.
Do I look like a Rive Gauche bottle?
