I took the easy option with the “Art’ theme. I have this wonderful piece of fabric with Toulouse-Lautrec work all over it.
A few years ago there was an exhibition of a number of Impressionist artwork posters in the Ballarat Fine Art Gallery and to see these was a wonderful thing. I don’t recall there being many Toulouse-Lautrecs but it gave me a much greater appreciation of his style.
I kept it simple. Colette Sorbetto with a plain front so that the print can be see. I put brown bias tape on the neckline and then promptly ran out of bias tape so I simply overlocked and double turned the sleeves and hem.
I’m almost tempted to wear it to work. I do like this fabric.
