nothing me-made this friday, just a snapshot of my jason wu for target top. i had the bag today, too.
t-shirt: jason wu for target
jacket: elie tahari, circa 2004
shoes: red ballet flats (not pictured)
actually, i had a really good clothes week this week. i’m getting better at melding my me-made pieces with my RTW favorites and developing a better sense of style, with less schizophrenia.
meanwhile: progress on my TSW “red” challenge.
i have the shell of the jacket completed. the entire jacket is underlined in silk organza, the sleeves are lovingly hand-gathered, all the seams are pressed and clipped. and i love how the shortened jacket back turned into a sort of bustle/peplum hybrid that looks pretty awesome. however, there’s still quite a ways to go: i’ve been procrastinating, big time, on the lining. note to self: i hate lining jackets. why not treat myself to a hong kong finish and a half-lining sometime, huh?
also: armscye princess seams are not my favorites.
and, while i love this fabric (matte silk taffeta), it’s definitely difficult to work with. it’s been a real challenge to keep everything pressed and clean.
