I'm slowly getting over the death of Mario's jacket. I decided that I needed to get right back on the horse, but preferably a pattern that wouldn't cause me to fall off again. At least not right away.
When I made my red-white-and-navy outfit recently, I knew I wanted to make another version of that cutaway shoulder top in white, both to wear with the red-white-and-navy skirt and because I don't have a sleeveless white blouse. And because the original white one in the magazine was so pretty.
So that's what I'm working on. White cotton/lycra from Paron's at the Patternreview NY shopping day last November (yes, NancyK, it's that white shirting that I made you buy).
It's going well so far (basic structure, topstitching and shoulder and side seams; collar and facings tonight), and it's making me think about blouses. I'm wearing one today that I haven't worn in a while, and I like it much more than I remembered. It's definitely making me want to pull the pattern out again and experiment. But that's a post for another day.
