I recently blogged about the color I saw in almost all the designers" shops in NYC (read about it here), but there was another detail that stood out as my girlfriend and I went from shop to shop: the same sleeve. Sometimes it was gathered, sometimes it was flounced, but it was everywhere! We saw it on all these tops in Burberry:
It was on the lovely dress from Valentino:
We saw it at Chanel, although I can't find a picture (and didn't think they would appreciate if I snapped a picture while we were in the store), and more moderately priced, at JCrew:
If you would like to create this look for yourself, you can find the look in the Tunic Bible:
and as one of the options for the Laural pattern from Colette Patterns.
Have you started planning your spring sewing? Maybe you want to incorporate this sleeve into the mix?
