I would use a cotton-backed silk for the jacket, view E. And I would probably add just a teensy bit of embroidery somewhere, just for fun. I would most definitely make the pants in a rayon blend to achieve a good drape. Washable rayon blend. (size 12-20)
Lucy Liu's dress was wonderful, unexpected--and a breath of "spring" on a cool California night. Ann Hathaway looked like old time Hollywood with a spark of neuvo pixie hair! Great frocks this year!!!
Wonderful reading and eye candy! This would be a perfect "give me inspiration, please" book that would be near my "planning" chair in my sewing room. Good grief, just looking at the cover makes me wish to stand up straight. And sew a beautiful jacket!
I love to mend teeny moth holes in garments. There is something about taking tiny stitches to make something like new again. And using darning techniques is rewarding, because the mend is quite strong! Hand mending, especially using items "rescued" from the garment itself (little snips of fabric to incorporate into the hole mend, some pulled threads, etc.), is a reward. It seems too, in this economy, to be an important skill. It provides longer life for a loved garment, a creative outlet in matching the stitch to the mending need, and finally satisfaction and pride at a job well done!
