This bit of fabulousness was purchased nearly three weeks ago. Too exciting. Denim with stainless steel thread and a slight crinkle.
It was bought after a trip to the library and a flip through burda style produced this
The pattern was traced – ideas have flooded my head ever since, and I just can’t wait to get into it. I love the bib at the front and how marvellous it will be to make it in contrasting fabric – or to sashiko the top yoke. I have visions of making a huge pleat at the back with something rich and extravagant revealing when the wearer walks.
Since holding the fabric, moulding and feeling it, a jacket has drifted by too – not to be worn as a suit, but just because I love it to damn much. I didn’t buy enough of it. It kills me – I’ll have to go back and get some more, and that makes no sense at all with a stash the size of mine (and the inverse bank balance)… The pangs of wanting, the pangs of guilt.
Too cruel, too silly… too little time.
