So as it turns out there is such a thing as fabric catalogs… Whoops, there went my bank account! I’m a little ashamed to admit that this beautiful Vlisco catalog arrived months ago and I’m just getting around to sharing it, but oh man oh man is it good! I dare you to be uninspired.
Exhibit a, probably the most incredible sleeves I’ve ever beheld.
Although those sleeves aren’t a style I plan to rock anytime soon I can’t help but be amazed by the effect. The cutouts and fabric manipulation in this catalog are simply out of this world. Check out the image below. Work!
And if that wasn’t enough to make your brain explode, Vlisco has online tutorials that show you exactly how they did it. They’ve also included most of the pictures and articles from this issue online.
Hello shirt dress!
Strangely I’m most attracted to this more subdued print. I’ve been slightly obsessed with the idea of a maxi shirt-dress since Mary’s shirt-dress inspiration post. Probably no accident that one of said maxi shirt dresses is in a wax print. I’m also oogling this (catalog image) and this (catalog image).
Which one would you choose?
