I've got to pull out the cutting stuff to cut interfacing for the next Weekender.
So I might as well cut the burgundy stuff I want to wear next month.
Which means I've got to make up my mind immediately about what pattern I'm going to use for the black/burgundy brocade jacket.
I pulled out a couple of Simplicity patterns last night and messed around with them (mostly just cut the pieces apart), but they really weren't speaking to me. And I don't want to take the time to fit another pattern. Trouble is, I don't have the shoulder-princess-mandarin-collar style I have in mind in a TNT pattern...shoot, I don't even have a morphable shoulder princess jacket TNT pattern.
So I'm about to come up with a second best...I'm thinking the Loes Hinse Bistro. I've gotten some really nice comments on that, and LH jackets make up Very Quickly. As I recall, there's only a couple little tweaky things I want to do to that pattern.
However, I do remember that it needs some front easing that doesn't play nice w/polyester, and I suspect my brocade is mostly poly.
I'm counting on the jacquard pattern camouflaging any poly puckering.
