The New Penelope Red Bias Blouse with Flared Sleeve and Asymmetrical Neckline.

Recently I have been experimenting with bias cut designs, predominantly a style I had created a few years ago with an asymmetrical neckline. It originally had only one sleeve, which I think for some people was a little too avante garde! So this season I created it with a pair of flared sleeves and it has made a great style so much more fantastic, more versatile and easier to wear. 

(Above is yesterday's outfit, and I am wearing a version of the bias blouse with a new pair of flared pants- all by #penelopereddesigns)

I have now made quite a few versions of this new flared sleeve bias blouse- I have kept a few for myself and some of my regular customers have bought a few too.

The above version has been made from two vintage red wools- a fantastic red wool print and a plain red crepe. This is a one of a kind design!

Once I find more photos of other versions of this style I will add them to the blog too.

New high waisted flared pants

Summer is approaching! These colourful high waisted flared pants will be perfect for many warm days and nights. I made them out of a light and floaty rayon, with a large floral print in very bright colors. 

I had been envisaging flared pants with a high waist for so long and finally I have them! I added a godet at each outer leg to give it a bit more flare and it makes them fall very nicely. 

The copy pictured here is my personal copy but hopefully there will be more where this has come from!
