Hate it when that happens.
First, I bought something from Jilli’s sale (DANGEROUS) — a fascinator with a glittery pink ship in sail, topped by black and white stripey sails (I think made by Noxenlux, or some other fabulous gothic milliner).
I fully intended to put this in an 18th-century wig. But I just realized how fan-freakin-tastic that would go with the pink and white stripey silk I got in the Garment District on Monday. Pink stripey petticoat, black jacket, and black wig with pink and black and white ship on top. FTW!
I can use the JP Ryan jacket pattern again and use the version that laces up the front — either with a black stomacher or *dun dun dun* a pink silk stomacher! Either the stripe (though that might be too wide; the stripes are 2″ wide) or another pink. Or even white with pink trim or something.
Gawd, when can I make this? I have a couple places I’d like to wear it but they’re coming up fast…
