First up, this March BWOF dress. I don't like the line drawing but the model photo is really cute. I plan to do this dress in a purple silk duppioni. I've never used duppioni before but I think it's a great pattern for duppioni. I've read that duppioni shreds a lot so something tight and fitted isn't the best thing. It's really hard to photograph the color.
Next, this April BWOF jacket. I love the flaps and the cropped length. I plan to do this in a cranberry corduroy.
Another pair of Jalie jeans. Yes, I know, that's three pairs in less than a month. What can I say? I love the fit of these jeans. I am going to goodwill the Levi's I've been wearing for the past year.
Next, a Patrones jacket. This jacket is from October 2005. I'm a Patrones virgin so this should be interesting. I have no idea what size I am in Patrones. When I measure my bust, waist, and hip, I'm in three different sizes. I went with a size 38 for the initial muslin fitting. It seems like The Patrones Woman has a larger bust and a small waist. Well, ahem, my bust isn't that large and my waist isn't that small.
I'm going to use this boucle from Fabric.com. I really like it. The colors are really bright and I'm toying with using the wrong side of the fabric. This is a sale fabric and, if I may shamelessly plug for a moment, that sponsor link to the right will take you to the sale page. This is one of the sale fabrics.
This is the back. What do you guys think about using the more subdues side?
