So many plans for the Fall....So little time.

Work has been kinda hectic - busy every second of the work day. Getting out at about 6pm doesn't give me anytime to run up to the garment district from the financial district. This weekend I dedicated to friends and my honnie in Philadelphia so fabric and notion shopping will have to wait *sigh*. In the meantime I'll will be rereading my Sew Stylish magazine and Couture Sewing Techniques and planning the rest of the my Fall/Winter wardrobe. It's still warm in NYC so can survive on my current wardrobe a little while longer. I hope to get my sketches up soon, but I'll give you a preview of my thoughts.

1. Crochet lace vest - This is an accent piece. I envision it over a button-up shirt topped with a jacket.

2. Cropped jacket galore - I plan on making at least 3 versions of the Simplicity 4045 jacket in a Tweed, Jacquard, and Wool boucle (attempting a Chanel couture finish here).

Just talking about it gets me feverishly excited. I might have to call in and take a personal day.

You're my new hero.I'm a geospatial analyst in DC by day and would be, wannabe, maybe if I move my ass crafter by night. I was a little sad that my 9-5 job would ruin my crafty ventures but seeing your blog gives me hope. And your stuff is gorgeous!! Keep it up!

Thanks Lisa. DC has a great craft community. Take advantage of those precious 60 minutes between 6pm and 7pm!
