MMM Day 12


the real thing at Musee D'Orsay

It's a beautiful day here in Paris. I hope it's lovely where you are too. My ensemble includes a top, pants, and a raincoat, but I did not need the raincoat - hooray!


These are the Helix pants in black ponte, pattern and fabric from the Sewing Workshop. It's a great pant pattern if you like uncluttered pull-on pants. They have darts and no waistband. Instead of a waistband, a wide piece of elastic is stitched to the top edge, folded to the inside and anchored in the seams with stitch-in-the-ditch. I find the waistband finish to be a little fussy but well worth the fussing.


This is the as-yet unpublished shirt from the Sewing Workshop. I created an external facing similar to the one here and added white sashiko to highlight the facing. The fabric is a medium weight black cotton, a bit rough like an old linen.

Thanks to all who commented on yesterday's post! I love the suggestions and thoughts on Paris. And, Coco, this is for you:

We are staying a block away!

  1. Such fun! and I love that you took the Cayre photo. Isn't this a great area in which to stay in Paris - everything is within walking distance. I'm soooo jealous right now :-)
