Now my version will have several "interpretative" changes:
- short sleeves instead of sleeveless
- black/white tweedy fabric instead of the plaid in the original design
- and satin bias binding instead of the black leather trim
For now, I am going to keep the tie but we will see how it works on me during the "fitting" cycle!
I know you are wondering what happened to the planned November wardrobe? I'm still going to work on it. The simple pieces will be constructed first around this dress and another piece that I'm just dying to add to my wardrobe. While the vintage dress/jacket combo will be worked on during the 4 day Thanksgiving weekend. I've also decided to do an "all at once" reveal. Hopefully this will spur me on to finishing the pieces and not abandoning the project!
I also have some better pics of the blue wool crepe dress and jacket as well as the argyle cardigan that I will share in another post. I promised to talk about some of the construction techniques and will answer a few of the questions you had in that post.
However, the question still remains, "Is it Friday yet?"
