My dog, I am easily distracted. Last night on Ugly Betty, Wilhelmina Slater was wearing a beautiful outfit and I decided I wanted to make one just like it. Her dress was a black and white print with about 50% of each colour. On top of it, she had a short jacket in a smaller black and white print with more white than black. Simple but really nice.
In the meantime of course, with two feet of snow out there, I am going to make a longish, lined skirt in the complimentary plain fabric to the raw silk. I think I have to go look at more jacket patterns to be sure before I cut the silk. And I want to get something really nice for the lining, like a subtle satin print. If such a thing exists.
