C'mon, even with my self-imposed pattern-buying blackout, I couldn't pass this up. The collar, the belt, the kimono sleeves — not to mention one of my favorite skirt designs, with a wide front piece that puts the side seams a bit more towards the front.
I really want to make this in traditional suiting; a nice wool, with maybe a touch of lycra. I'd have to line it, which would be a pain, but worth it to give it heft (and keep it from scratching). I'll probably make it up in poplin, first, to try it out — maybe a nice abstract print, small-scale.
Of course, the way things are going now, I'll make it in 2008, maybe 2009 — but I couldn't do even that if I hadn't broken down and bought the darn pattern! Which, sometime next week, I will put in a box. Sigh.
