I'm thinking that I'll might have her make me something, some time, if I come up with something the shops can't provide me.
@Ta-ta: sounds like a great skirt! Guess it's Lanvin? You've got a picture?
Ooh yes, those kinds of seamstresses are much better, when you already know and like their work and can see them regularly for fittings. If you don't fully know her instincts as a pattern maker, the best is if you already have an item that fits perfectly and you simply take her the fabric you want it in (making sure the fabric goes with the pattern of course), or take her the pattern itself.
, second the request to see the Lanvin skirt.
My proverbial wealthy Yohji-crazy shopaholic aunt is coming to Paris this week, and has offered to take me clothes shopping...she says to choose anything I want in advance because she knows I'm picky...I have only a few hours to go window-shopping, but should probably choose a few items in various price ranges...was ecstatic but all stressed now...
I've been needing a fantastic non-flashy but sexy and unique dress and gorgeous heels for all the events I go to... I wouldn't feel right asking as a gift something practical, nor for something over 1000 euros in total...any ideas? I'm thinking Dries, Vivienne, Ferretti, MiuMiu, Chloe...
