Well it's been awhile since I've posted, but when the daylight hours got shorter my camera decided it couldn't coop. Getting a good one is on the long list of things to do.
The question mark in the title is there as I'm in almost no way a animal print kind of person.
Well I do make one exception, cows.
But I don't think there are cows in the jungle anyway.
I had an occasion I was making a dress for. The occasion didn't necessitate something very dressy, but I wanted something new.
The dress was a big failure and ended up, for multiple reasons in the trash.
So as one does, the Tuesday before the event I ran to Mood and purchased a small cut of a very lovely Alice and Olivia of fabric (not found on the website). The fabric is a lovely cotton brocade. Weighty with out being too heavy.
The matching sweater and shoes were already in the wardrobe for a perfect outfit. I've been know to walk into a fabric store with a shoe to look for coordinating fabric. This time i wore the sweater. 48 hours later I had a perfect skirt.
Then I realized that the pattern is cheetah.
So I'm in for Jungle January.
I'm having a patterned skirt moment. It is a rather simple make, but it is the kind of thing I'm likely to get a lot of use from. There's another one coming up and I expecting that there will be more. As long as I already have the top to match. I'm really avoiding orphan makes these days.
