I've been having fun crossing things off my Autumn/Winter 2012 list but progress has slowed a little and basically that's because I'm a bit chicken. Those coats are intimidating and those black pants I so desperately want are scaring me a little bit. So this past weekend I made a deal with myself - trace out a couple of patterns, muslin the pants and then I could whip up Simplicity 2054 in some beautiful emerald ponti from Tessuti in Melbourne. And here it is.
Sorry - no pictures on me, I was having a pj day and didn't want to get dressed. This is such a quickie, I made a straight size 14 and I didn't add any extra length! I even managed to squeeze out the detachable cowl which I think looks pretty good over a plain white t-shirt too.
With a little bit of luck I'll have some black pants to show you soon. Suddenly they don't seem so scary anymore :D
