Progress!

Sewing 001
I finished the back of my knit coat yesterday, and I’m beginning the fronts.  I want to finish it now, since this berry color is sooo hot this season.  This pattern is especially easy, simple stockinette stitch.  I pinned the back onto my form so you could see how long it’s going to be.  It’s got belt holes in the back.  I love to knit and crochet; I can sit for hours doing it and contemplate the meaning of life :).  Or, contemplate my next sewing projects.  After taking a needed sewing break, I’m itching to get back to the machine.  I do have a want list:
 
Country Style/plaid – British country style, big this Fall, and I had ordered a cool plaid from Gorgeous Fabrics, that is no longer on the website.  I think this coat would be cool, from BWOF, 9/08, #116:
000001715600 
Ruffled tops, also big this season.  I gotta have one, like these from net-a-porter:  
                                        34558_in_m       35384_in_m      35393_in_m
I’m thinking Simplicity 3684, or Vogue 2850, in white.
 
Cropped jackets:

                                        Tahari                      Akris                             BWOF
This is a piece I don’t have in my closet.  Made up in black, the one on the right is from this month’s BWOF.  I’ll try this out with some black moleskin.

                                                                  Alice + Olivia
Of course, Vogue 1051 and probably Vogue 2907.  Lastly, I really want this great Badgley Mischka suit:

Fortunately, there’s Vogue 1066
As always, there are a few other little things that get thrown into the mix as well, as the mood strikes.  Sooooo, I’d better get busy.
