Weekend Pretty: 1.22.12

It's an unseasonable 80 degrees in Austin this afternoon, but I'm still holding out for cold weather. Part of this is thanks to the delightful debut collection from Ulyana Sergeenko, the Russian fashion photographer turned designer, which has been haunting my inspiration file for the last few months. Many of you have probably seen these images on Pinterest, but if not, prepare for the Victorian-inspired ladylike wardrobe of your dreams.














(More images of the collection can be seen at Honestly WTF)

Now, I'm off to finish my not one, but two, dresses for this week's Sew Weekly challenge! Unfortunately, despite the Make-The-Look theme of the week, they aren't inspired by those beauties above. I'm limited to dresses one can wear when winter forgets to arrive!

    1. Isn't it gorgeous? I can't wait for Sergeenko's future work. If this is her first collection, just imagine where she'll go from here!

  2. So many pretty pictures. I especially love the 4th one down with the teal skirt and the grey long-sleeve top. So elegant and with gorgeous textures!

    1. Oh, Poppy, that is one of my favorites as well. I love how she mixed slightly unexpected fabrics there. She's genius!

    1. Isn't it, Mariló? My wardrobe for next fall will, no doubt, be heavily influenced by this collection. Just divine.

  4. Agree with poppykettle about the 4th one down but the whole collection is so lovely!

    1. Count me in, Amelia! The fourth one is a definite favorite of mine. That mix of fabrics is inspired.

      And, let's be honest, the first one rather makes me swoon as well. There's just something about a white collar on a black dress...

  5. Oh, this whole collection has been going 'round and 'round in my head since last summer. So beautiful! And so unlike anything you can buy in a shop. I guess we're lucky we can sew!
