Maria Vesterlind Dress

Maria Vesterlind designed this fancy Dress. Cost 2700 crowns – much too expensive for me. What I like about it is the Earth coloring, the Pattern and all the colors together.

Like those dresses with a wide, stiff skirt and a stiff bodice that reminding of 50’s dresses. Cannot see if this is one of those.

Dress  Vanna in French jaquard. Black with mustard and silvergrey butterflies.

Would it be something to sew?



Carol Spensers outfit-shape system

Carol Spensers Stilanalyssystem. Fyra silhuetter per (mode)säsong / färgårstid?

Klädformer i stället för kroppsformer som  timglasform, äpple etc.

Dessa fyra outfit shapes är:
Jag gjorde outfittestet och fick att jag borde ha en Loose fitting – men det tycker inte jag. Tycker jag passar bäst i  Streamline. Tyvärr länge sen jag var en CinchedIn.

Löslinjestilen ska man ha, men trots det inte säckiga kläder!! Men tjejen på bilden är ju verkligen säckigt klädd!!

LooseLine Style means outfits with no waist emphasis which just skim

the body in medium-weight, drapey fabrics. Avoid very tight, clingy

garments which will make you look bigger than you are!

LooseLine Style is especially important for your tops – jackets, knits,

coats etc. Team these with narrower bottoms – skirts, trousers, leggings,

etc for a fabulous, fashionable look.

Above all, avoid baggy skirts and dresses with wide hemlines which have

a shortening/fattening effect!


Edge-to-edge styles
Waterfall front tops/cardi’s
Swing coats/macs
Fishtail skirts/dresses
Long-length jackets cardi’s

Evening separates
Flat fronted/side zip trousers
Straight skirts
Column dresses
Stirrup pants and boots

Can I wear a belt?

Belts are not your best accessory. Opt for eye-catching jewellery, bags, shoes instead! If you do want to wear a belt, the best way is beneath a loose jacket or cardi, so just the buckle shows.

Can I ever wear more fitted styles?

If you wear a corset (which pulls in your waist and hoists up your boobs!) you will be more able to wear StreamLine Style. This is great for special occasions – weddings, parties etc – but is not too comfortable for everyday wear!
