Two New Viscose Crepe Styles
Posted on April 05 2014
The Hummingbird collection features some new styles in my favourite fabric, viscose crepe.
The Poppy slip and Poppy skirt are fantastic layer pieces that are made with the viscose crepe cut on the bias. This makes the fabric mould over the body to give a figure hugging look that can be used to make an outfit more dressy. It also works perfectly as a base layer as it keeps a slim line, perfect to add a silk dress or tunic on top.
The Poppy slip can layer over slim line pants like the Cedar or Skinny leg pants. You can put a long sleeve top under the slip, making it into a Pinafore type of layer, or add a Mela Cardi on top. Another alternative top layer is the Hanna silk top, which can wrap or drape as a dress top layer.
