Hmm, what's a girl to make?
On the one hand, I love this red Chanel jacket from the 2008/09 Paris-Moscou collection with its cleverly placed trim:
On the other hand, I could use a cream-colored version of this jacket below (sort of the reverse of this faux-Chanel jacket I made last winter):
Read this New York Times article where T fashion director Anne Christensen defends paying $4,710 for a Chanel jacket. (photo also from The New York Times)
I also have this fabulous metallic bouclé I bought at Mood Fabrics last month that I'd love to do something nifty with. Arrgghh! So many options.
At any rate, nothing will get done in August, other than possibly making a jacket muslin for Susan Khalje and Kenneth King to critique in the class I am taking with them in four weeks. In September I'll start to get serious. Many thanks to Cindy and Antoinette for organizing this sew-along!
