SO...here's the Vogue 9057 top that is fresh off the sewing machine as of 10 PM last night...which is something, considering the flat fabric arrived on my doorstep about 2 PM yesterday afternoon. The color is terrible to photograph...a pearly dusky pink. Which is pretty much the standard interpretation of 'mauve'. But it looks washed out beige in about every photo. Worn with the Burda vest that I wear All. The. Time. and the pin stripe tropical wool modified Oxfords from last year's SWAP collection. Interesting thing about those stripes...I think they're tan and gray, but, being only two threads wide, they can read as other colors...including mauve and lavender.
But it is pretty at a distance, anyway. I thought about making a denim-style jacket out of it , but I really don't have time for anything that involved. I'd like a long vest, but I'm not sure if it will hang or stand, if you know what I mean.
My own personal sewing challenge...make something I can wear by Friday this week. So it's gotta be ridiculously quick.
