La Mia Boutique Goes Futurama

Once in a while I stop at Around the World Fashion Magazines and Books in New York’s Garment District to peruse the foreign fashion magazines. Especially around Fashion Week time, there are a lot of lewks to be seen.


I sought out the August/September issue of La Mia Boutique, an Italian sewing magazine similar to Burda Style, because I had to check out the “Futurama” spread of patterns by Elena Savò as part of my “edgy” sewing wardrobe plan. Several of her looks for fall/winter 2018 are in the issue, including these:


savo face jacket
This jacket with the face profiles is fascinating
Savo Betsey
Reincarnated Betsey Johnson realness
Savo dress
I’m too old to wear this but I love it
Savo pants
Crazypants with off-center fly

I also love this denim ensemble by Sara Poiese:

I don’t have any of these projects in my plan now, of course, but I am going to go over the patterns in detail and see what’s doable for spring – at least the skirt and jacket combo and that “face” sheer jacket.

I live in Connecticut, USA with my husband and my dog, in an old house outfitted with a sewing room, a garden, an orchard, and a big liquor cabinet.
