Drapey angles and balloons
Here’s some May Day fun. Will this idea last ?
Feast your eyes on the fascinating cut of these voluminous dresses.
Issey Miyake Vogue 1238
Sandra Betzina Vogue 1234
or McCall’s 6350 for something more restrained.
For a balloon style, there’s the Sewing Workshop Tosca dress.
or Donna Karan Vogue 1175.
And what about these pants :
Vogue Woman Vogue 8588
or for stretch knits there’s Vogue 8738.
And a skirt by AKO, Vogue 1248

I love that it’s possible to wear longer dresses this season. People here are coming out in them as soon as the sun shines. And I love swishing skirts. These look as if they would be marvellous to swirl around in. Though I’m not sure what happens when you sit down.
And I do think this is one instance where shape shouldn’t echo shape. I may have a triangle shape body, but I don’t think I would look good in these triangle shape clothes ! More like a mountain with foot hills. . .
I’m intrigued with how these are made, though I wouldn’t be happy wearing them myself.
But great fun for those with the panache to carry it off
