Colette Crepe and Buttercup Bag: perfect wedding outfit

What a better backdrop for an outfit than a church all set up for a wedding. My cousin got married last weekend and chose a beautiful XV century church for his vows.

So, I can finally show you my very own Colette Crepe with the Buttercup bag I made.

Quale sfondo migliore per farvi vedere le mie nuove creazioni che una chiesa pronta per il matrimonio. Mio cugino si e’ sposato lo scorso weekend e ha scelto questa bellissima chiesa del XV secolo.

Cosi’ posso finalmente farvi vedere il mio Crepe di Colette e la borsa Buttercup

After 4 muslins I needed to get the bodice to fit right I am quite happy with the result. Sorry for some wrinkles…I had a two-hour car ride to get there.

Dopo 4 modelli di prova per riuscire a perfezionare il corpetto sono riuscita nel mio intento. Scusate per le pieghe…ero stata in macchina per due ore.

The fabric feels like taffeta but it’s actually cotton. I chose the fabric having this dress and the wedding in mind…and comes all the way from Mood in NYC (I actually never blogged about my trip to the fashion district). So for many reasons this outfit is really special to me.

La stoffa sembra quasi taffeta’ ma e’ in realta’ cotone. L’ho scelta proprio per questo vestito e in particolare per il matrimonio…e viene niente meno che da Mood a New York (in realta’ non vi ho mai raccontato della mia visita al quartiere della moda). Per questo questo completo e’ davvero speciale per me.

Can you tell I love my new shoes? They are from Spanish designer Pura López that I could get on sale…I was impressed by how comfortable they are…the platform is the key here.

If I can be in love with a me-made outfit…this one really ticks all the boxes for me.

What is your favorite me-made garment?

Si nota che sono innamorata delle mie scarpe nuove? Sono della stilista spagnola Pura López che ho comprato in saldo. Non ci crederete ma sono comode…la zeppa fa la differenza.

Se ci si puo’ innamorare di una propria creazione sicuramente scelgo questa.

Qual e’ l’abito che vi piace di piu’ tra quelli che avete cucito?

  1. Oh Silvia, it turned out beautifully. All those muslins were well worth it. The dress looks great on you and I love the added details of the matching bag and shoes. You look gorgeous in this outfit! My favourite me-made garment? Hands down, my red Alabama Stitch Book skirt: comfy and flattering all in one.
