My apologies for not giving you more information. I've been remiss about updating the situation.
Well, here we go... I opened an office about 1 year ago. It has exhausted me to the point of anxiety and ill-health. My plan for the new year is a recovery. Don't get me wrong, it has been successful beyond expectations but at a cost. Many costs... I won't go into it but man, I'm not perfect.
So, let's get on to the sewing, knitting, crafting, fun!
I'm currently in the process of knitting Ecuador MT Ecuador. It's a beautiful yellow-orange. Pantone shows it will be in vogue through next year. I hope so. If you've ever worked with fingering weight you'll understand. I've never worked with it but it does take diligence.
On to sewing...
I have a wedding in October to plan for. So on to the Pantone charts for Fall 2012/2013 (can you believe it?). I'm thinking about a nice navy dress with a contrasting jacket, maybe a orange or purple. I'll leave that for a little bit before the wedding. Here's what I'm thinking.
When you look at the photo, you'll see how the neckline buckles. This is expected when you move, I think a nice slit with a v-shape will help make it flow better.
Although I'm a 30E, I think this might work. What do you think about making a slit at the neckline to break up the large expanse of fabric. Also, this jacket may look nice.
What do you think. It's probably going to be a late-afternoon wedding.
Fabric? I'm thinking a nice gabardine or double-knit for the dress The jacket would be nice in a plaid. I don't know. Please help!
Oh, Vogue has come out with some new patterns. I love this dress. But is it too much for 43 yo woman?
I don't want to look like a hoochi-mama! let me know. Also, I could stand to lose a little weight so will it look right? By the time summer gets here I hope that last part isn't an issue. Gotta work; no hope:)
