Spring 2010 - Cadena! Can You Stand Some More?

Can you stand some more inspiration? Maybe not for those of you who saw the Oscars last night. So many fabulous dresses. There were a few nice tuxedos on the red carpet as well.

But for the sake of sewing "Real Way" instead of "Run Way", here are a few more of my favorites from the Spring Catalog. Enjoy!


Great details on this jacket. The white on black is something I want to incorporate into one of my Spring/Summer projects.



I've been wanting a similar jacket for a while. I need move it closer to the up of the ole list.



The layering technique used in this outfit is outstanding. It's fresh and doesn't look over done. (Side note - the models have big beautiful hair.)



Great use of fabric. The combination of the chiffon (belt) and the boucle (jacket) is interesting. The colors remind me of a dewy spring morning with the scents of gardenias and jasmine flowing in the air.



The big flower is definitely over the top. But I like the idea of the side flounce instead of a slit.

Happy Sewing!

I love Cadena catalogs. They are great for ideas and inspiration. I have never bought any of the fabric though. Too expensive for my budget. I like both of those jacket.
