So I’ve gotten myself in trouble again. I’ve done so well, REALLY! It’s been AGES since I bought fabric, for myself. Yes, I bought the jacket pattern a few weeks ago and I felt really good about it because I had the restraint to wait to buy fabric until I was free to work on it. However, last weekend, I lost all control. I bought LOTS of knits – some for running shirts, mentioned in my last post. But some for every-day shirts, one particular set of which I am especially excited about.
Over last weekend, I saw an outfit at Tilly’s out of a pretty yellow, gray and white. It was a combination I wouldn’t have really thought of but I really loved it. So I found a really great yellow knit at Hancock’s Fabrics the other day that I plan to make a Sadie Tank with, with the cowl neck option as seen below.
Then I saw this Michael Miller Print on fabric.com:
And found a local store who carried it and picked some up last night. As I looked through my patterns, I found this out of print Simplicity Project Runway cropped Jacket Pattern:
I’m so glad I bought it when I did, because now it’s out of print! (Though still available through the simplicity site if you click the picture above) Anyway – what do you think? Is it wierd to wear a yellow and gray bird print jacket? I love the colors and I love birds and I love the patterns…I just don’t always have confidence in my combinations. If it’s too strange, I can make a really cool purse so there is no loss. Looking forward to your comments!
