Another contributer to Vogue patterns, her collection takes you back to a time of regal opulence but keeps you up to date with trendy silhouttes. I think you are going to love this one.
Inspiration: Architecture from the St. Peterburg Winter Palace, Russia
So, let me put you in the right state of mind.
Yeah... this palace put the B in Baroque style Architecture for sure.
Alright lets get into it.

Look 1, Wow, what a statement, the peplum top with what looks like an embroidered jacquard and leather with leather piping in the seams and Look 2. I love how she used the organza with the leather trim on the sleeves and kept the design from Look one with the fabric placement. I also like Look 11 where the same look of the fabric placement is represented in the coat. This looks like a trend in itself, I think it will have a trickle down effect.
I love the leather trim on the neckline and armhole and the leather that come from the back to the front.
What an amazing blouse, this would be great for an office party during the hoildays, I love the ruffles and how it comes up high on the neckline. It feel like its an Elizabeth the first reference which ties into her inspiration source.
The embroidered detail on this coat is absolutely stunning on an otherwise simple coat, the neckline is also embellished to match the embroidery.
As you can see by now the sweetheart neckline is very prevalent this season. I love the mixed textures used to make this jacket and the shape of the peplum of this dress, I haven't seen this geometric cut of the peplum yet.
I watched this show over and over again today. Just stunning. I can't wait to see if any of these designs are released from vogue patterns.
