Sitting at my desk this morning, over coffee, toast, and blueberries, thinking about projects. I need to take stock.
Recent inspiration is an outfit from the Mui Mui Autumn-Winter 2010 collection.
Not a fan of the lower section, but the bodice would look amazing with a full skirt. I'd love to try to make the collar/neckline. But my next project is going to be a 1930s day dress. The plan is to complete it by September 12th for the Gatsby Picnic.
Pattern is #3007 1930s Button Dress from Decades of Style
Based on past experience, this completion date is a bit ambitious, although I have a few days off work this month and the design seems pretty straight forward plus I've found the fabric - yay!
Fabric found at Peapod Fabrics, San Francisco
Locating fabric I like is so difficult, plus I'm not good (yet) at visualizing the fabric and the design together, but I'm feeling pretty good about this fabric. As soon as the pattern arrives, I'll get to work! I. will. finish. on. time. (Don't mind me as I repeat my aspiration a few times...I will finish on time. I will finish on time...I'm good enough, good enough, good enough...)
Does anyone remember Al Franken's Stuart Smalley? (who doesn't have a Wikipedia page?!)
