That touch of fashion: Doris Day is every inch a star in Givenchy. December 29, 2013 19:28


What a luscious look for the ever-so-lovely Doris Day. I adore this satin coat. It's elegant. It's classy. It is oh-so-chic. Indeed. And the delightful Simplicity_coat strawberry ice cream color looks dreamy enough to eat with a spoon.

Day's coat is designed by the masterful Givenchy. Givenchy, as you know, was Audrey Hepburn's favorite designer.

You can easily emulate this look with Simplicity 5103. Simply make View 1 and shorten the sleeves.

Mood has a lush silk satin that would be quite beautiful whipped up in this haute couture style. The pink is Duchess_satin_silk more muted, but still gorgeous. And some might even say this subtle color is much more sophisticated.

One of my favorite Day quotes: "I find beauty everywhere. I find beauty in my garden." And certainly, either pink looks straight from the petals of a peony or a rose.

You may buy this wonderful coat pattern at The Blue Gardenia's outstanding sale. But don't tarry, because patterns are rushing out of here faster than corsages from the florist at prom time. The skinny:
