Remember this pic from back in June?
Well, I think the time has come for the taupe fabric and a jacket from this Simplicity
2452 pattern. Because …
… I have a message on my voicemail this morning from my headhunter who told me I passed the conflicts and background checks for that job. I haven't been able to reach her yet, but I'm pretty sure this means I got the job (hoping I didn't just jinx myself!). If I did, I think I would start on Monday. And if so, my work wardrobe needs some SERIOUS help, and FAST!
If I can make — and most importantly, FIT — a jacket and skirt from this fabric before Monday, I will have added at least 3 more outfits to my choices.
Except, I'm undecided about WHICH jacket to make. I bought the pattern for View B/C. But, I'm now thinking with the gathers in front, that's not going to look so great unbuttoned since I will fit this to be tight right now, which means wearing it open. So, I'm contemplating two choices: One, make View A (the other jacket) or make View B/C with long sleeves and omit the gathers in front. While I *lurve* the gathered front, I think I'm leaning toward the other jacket for now.
I'll worry about a skirt pattern soon enough.
