Instead I pulled out a stack of magazines and among them I found a recent Neiman Marcus mailer. I didn't find too much to get excited about. Lots of dark, somber colors and minimal details.
However, there were two things that really caught my eye. I really like the lines of this jacket. I will need to look at my pattern stash to see if there's something I could easily use to make one like it.
I immediately thought of a Byron Lars pattern that I have in my stash. It is pattern number 1420 from 1994 that has not yet been used.
View B is similar enough that I could use it to make this shirt (which is a Nieman Marcus exclusive for only $248! Aaah, the joys of sewing.) Now, I just need to find the right fabric - a cotton/lycra blend woven in a s a good shirt weight. Let the search begin.Pin It
