I have been on a bit of a navy kick lately, so I picked up (going 'round clockwise) navy wool blend seersucker from Calvin Klein, navy cotton lycra twill from Dana Buchman, navy striped Italian cotton shirting and midnight navy worsted wool. Trust me, that's what they are, even though they probably all just look like massive blobs of navy on your monitor.
I also nabbed a lightweight wool and cashmere blend olive suiting to use for Vogue 7764. I have had this pattern for an age, but I never got around to making it. However, I was recently inspired by the lovely Robin, who is thinking of sewing up this jacket out of a gorgeous plaid fabric. Unlike Robin, who is capable of thinking outside the box in terms of novel fabric/pattern pairings, I decided to be as predictable as possible and use this olive fabric to make view B. Or I may get real crazy and make view B, with view A's collar. So, you'll obviously want to stay tuned for the thrilling conclusion of this important decision.
I guess I just have jackets on the brain because I have decided to join in on the "Jacket a Month for 2011" sewing frenzy that was inspired by Gigi and promoted by Marcia on Stitcher's Guild. I have already finished two jackets and it's not even 2011 yet. I know - I'm really awesome! So, if you are inclined, feel free to meander on over to SG and join us.
