Thoughts on a Fall SWAP...

Just a few pieces that have caught my eye...

I keep looking at this same silhouette over and over again... This one is from Fendi.
I made a similar silhouette last year out of m5701. I think it might work for this too, if with slightly different proportions.

Here is a super cute skirt from Kate Spade's Spring'09 collection.
Obviously, I'm still really feeling the color block look. And, I love the mix of solid and print with this one. I have a few simple skirt patterns in the drawer. I'm sure I have a body to match this one.


Just some thoughts.... we shall see.

I love both these garments. I have been thinking along similar lines to use up some leftover fabric pieces.

Hey Gail... I wish I could claim that I planned on using my existing fab stash to make these garments... Unfortunately, out of all the fab I have on hand, none of it is color or weight appropriate for either of these...I guess I have no choice by to keep looking for more yardage ((wink/wink))

Hi Angela... A pencil skirt in this combo might just be a little bit fabulous! Thanks for the inspiration!

Hi there, I stumbled across your blog from Google search - looking at Bodice slopers. I noticed you had a threadbanger badge on your blog and I cannot for the life of me find it on their website to add it to mine. Assistance? a link? the code? Greatly appreciated -Kristen-

Well Kristen, I can't, for the life of me, remember where I found either! But...Maybe you can use my code and see if it still works...

Email me directly and we'll see.
