|Ellen Barkin in the Headmistress|
I love surfing the web for sewing inspiration. Thanks to some dutiful lurking on the Selfish Seamstresses' blog, I came across a wonderful rendition of the L'Wren Scott Headmistress dress...a simple dark sheath with contrasting white cuffs and collar. I looooove the modern-vintage sort of detail to the collar, and knew I had to learn more about the designer. L'Wren Scott has a background as a costume designer for film, and it shows - timeless pieces, unique detail, beautiful fabrics. A lot of great ideas here that could translate easily into office wear with a little creative sewing wizardry...check out the website for great runway videos and inspiration of your own!
Love the detail on these little numbers...
Also be sure to check out Selfish's version, called the English Tutor dress, great job! She also offers a kit that you can download for making the collar and sleeves, so if you have a basic sheath pattern already you can make an English Tutor of your own! How suspiciously unselfish of her...

Enough gawking for me, I have to go tidy up my sewing space so that I can actually use it this afternoon.
