Random Inspiration

No idea where it came from, but I LOVE this dress
Since the heat's been preventing me from getting much sewing done, I've been going through my inspiration files to keep my brain busy and thinking about sewing.

Here are a few things that I've squirreled away over the years.  Designer/sewist credit is given when I've retained it; if you can put a name to something I show here, please let me know. 

No idea, but LOVE the jacket

Mondo Guerra, Project Runway

Schiaparelli - circus jacket

Not a Mad Men fan, but this . . . ?

I love your choices. I've seen the black and red dress somewhere.... grey cells not up to recalling where.

When I can't sew I look at my inspiriation photo's too. You have some great garments in your collection. Hope it cools down soon.
