So, I’m working on a second pair of BWOF pants (9-2007-115). This time, they’ll be in this gorgeous cheviot wool I bought in Egypt in October. I’ve only just cut out the fashion fabric. I still need to cut the lining and, well, make them.
I bought this striped fabric from Gorgeous Fabrics on New Year’s Day to make this dress that Veronica Webb wore on the first episode of the Tim Gunn makeover show. There are two patterns (Vogue and New Look) — I own the New Look — that will work perfectly. It’ll be a great summer dress.
I have always loved this Lux Nappa Flight Bag from Calvin Klein “Calvin Klein’s Flight Bag is styled like a chic relic from the jet-set era. Though the shape is slightly retro-inspired, the gorgeous full-grained leather, subtle topstitch, and sparingly-applied hardware detailing have propelled this carry-all into the very fashionable here and now. ” It was featured in the now defunct Blueprint a year or two ago. By the time I got to Macy’s they only had a silverish and reddish version. I wanted the black, brown cream or purple. I think I’m ready to try and find a similar shaped bag and make my own. Any suggestions on a pattern are welcome.
And, did you hear? President-Elect Obama is coming to Baltimore tomorrow! They’ve got streets shut down and are building viewing stands and bleachers. It’s also going to feel like 5 degrees below (-20 celsius). I’ll be watching it on TV.
