Using fabric that I’ve acquired from different sources, I have this mad desire to create a few different garments. One is a black and white Donna Reedish-looking dress, one is a rayon blouse with a big, floppy cowl neckline and possibly a peplum, and another is a set of A-line ankle-length corduroy skirts. I’m working on the blouse right now, but since i have no pattern and am making the whole thing up as I go, I don’t know how long it will take or how successful I will be. I have a feeling it’ll work out, but I think I need to draw up a pattern for the dress and skirts. This is probably the wrong way to go about the process.
Also, my new mad desire has not yet started me wanting to make a coat, but it’s gettin’ there. This is a polyester trench coat from Kate Spade, and I am growing more fond of it by the day. Before too long, I’m gonna be drawing up trench coat plans. I love the shape, the length and the little bow tie doo-jiggy in the back. What I don’t love is that it’s $645.
