Finishing more and more

Today was just a silly sleeve job on a long fine wool sweater dress, a black Nina Ricci that goes almost to my toes. The short sleeves were too long still and frumpy looking.It’s not a length I normally wear but it looks like an amazing canvas for jewelry: Probably piles of long necklaces. And now it’s done and hanging in the closet, just in time for another deep freeze.

Because really I’m thinking about my spring wardrobe and what’ll be in it.

Wrap dresses, lots of them. Wrap tops, too.

Purples and grays and blacks.

Silk, mostly thrifted, but not all.

Little knit tops that fit right. Skinny shells with little ruffles down the fronts.

Holy f-ing idea!

Finishing.
Brilliant.
I’m so terrible at it.
And then my brain also gets cluttered. It feels so good to complete things, and even better when they work and you actually want to wear them.

Of all the join-ups out there right now, this is the project I want to hop onto.

Then again, so’s this one.

I think I can combine the two, by actually finishing the clothing I’ve begun and using the patterns  and fabrics I’ve hoarded this fall and winter. Think there’ll be some refashioning involved, too, not just scratch sewing.

Now to get down to business…
