Pin tucks are go!

Suddenly they are everywhere, those narrow pin tucks. And I find them in rather unlikely places - like on the sleeves of this winter coat.

From MQ.

Another example that I want to plug is the blouse from Boden with pin tucks on the collar that I blogged about a couple of weeks ago. Luckily the talented artist Emily Martin followed my style advice (eeehh, I wish!) and bought the blouse.

So if you are aching to try a new sewing technique this winter I'd say go for pin tucks. And as a bonus from this impromptu fashion blogger you'll get a photo of me looking seriously scary while trying on the MQ coat during my lunch break today (if Count Dracula was texting, this is what it would look like).

    Girl, you make me laugh! I bought a Vogue pattern for a pintucked coat last winter but there are no sleeve pintucks. I will have to look it up if you it doesn't ring any bells.
