I'm looking at and figuring on doing view B which is on the lower right of the pattern envelope. I have only 2 yards of the fabric I want to use so I'm hoping I can make it work. Gosh, I think I just sounded like Tim Gunn?! Oh My?! Anyway, I've had this fabric for quite some time and was never really sure what I wanted to do with it, but I think this would be the perfect project for it.
It's a very pretty boucle that has a black background with accents of purple, magenta, dark blue, light blue and yellow threads that make up the pattern. I think I can almost make out a houndstooth shape with the black, but it's really hard to tell. I figure it has tons of possibilities for pairing with any number of skirts, or trousers or even jeans! I will have to look for a lining fabric as well which means I'll have to go to the fabric store . . . which means, I might get distracted again . . . which means I might end up wanting to start another project??!!! Yikes, I think I better get focused on what I've got going so far.
Hope to be back again soon with updates on these 2 exciting projects I got going on. SEW . . . until then . . .
P.S. I hunted down my copy of Threads, issue 121 from October/November 2005. It has a great article by Susan Khalje on the "Inside Secrets of a Chanel Jacket" which I'm gonna read over again. There's tons of great info in the article for this project if you can get your hands on a copy of this issue for yourself!
