|VPLL 0189 - Ladies' Mantle
Isn't this a beauty? And doesn't this, made in the right fabrics with the right trim, have an absolute place in a modern wardrobe? I haven't seen the back yet, I need to print the sheets out tomorrow at work to see if there's anything unusual there, but I'm not expecting any surprises.
I have several fabrics in the stash that are really calling loudly to me that they want to be this jacket (VPLL calls it a mantle, which is 1912-speak for jacket, I guess). The problem is that the fabrics that are calling most loudly will also fight hardest with the several trims I'm considering.
In the meantime, I've also cut into my poppy fabric and am making something totally unplanned from it. Stay tuned.
