God Save McQueen!
Like everyone else even remotely interested in the world of fashion, I am deeply saddened by Alexander McQueen's tragic death. Though I was not, nor probably ever will be, able to afford any of his more magical designs, the more down to earth diffusions pieces that I have been able to purchase are among the favorite and most beautifully crafted pieces in my wardrobe (the above dress and leggings being two examples). In a sort of tribute to him, I have decided to tackle the kimono jacket pattern of his from SHOWstudio, something that I have long contemplated, but never felt experienced enough to take on. Now seems to be the perfect time to rise to this challenge.
