as if I didn't have enough to worry about
Is she content to hang out and relax while I try to race my way through the many unfinished projects that are weighing heavily on my mind? No. She's not. She wants some attention.
So Miss C & F and I are totally obsessed and inspired by Chaiken's Fall 2006 collection (apparently we can still knit capes and be fashionable!). All the cute little jackets - we want to make one! Now Miss C & F will not have the soft drape that they do, nor will she be black, but I'm using the designs as a jumping off point.
Now since I can't get my hands on a Chaiken jacket, I'm considering one of favorites that's currently in my closet. I love the basic shape and the 3/4 sleeves. I think it will not, however have the same banded collar and instead have a rounded neck. Much like the Chaiken jacket, but also a *lot* like a classic Chanel, given Miss C & F's tweedy, boucle tendencies.
Next stop, buying some muslin to make a pattern. She will be full fashioned - none of this top down in the round nonsense. Miss C & F is an old-fahioned kind of girl.
Wish us luck.
