Unfortunately, the fabulous double faced green taffeta didn't make the order. After being told that I'd receive some, the packing slip said it was sold out. Oh well! I can't get too upset. The fabrics I received are wonderful. The gray plaid will probably become a wrap skirt. The gray boucle will at least be a jacket, but hopefully a suit. I bought 3 yards of it.
The pattern tissue in the photo is pattern 1945, which was part of a special by Nancy. I don't have the original pattern, so the tissue is all I've got. Hopefully, I can work it out--the price was right (free) and this is known as an excellent jacket pattern.
And the shoes from SmartBargains.
Last winter, I wrecked my cute black kitten heeled boots due to a slip on the ice, and I've been looking for a basic black replacement boot ever since. You'd think it wouldn't be that hard, but so many boots have "hooker heels", and I wanted something at least semi-practical. These seem like they'll fit the bill, and the cost was reasonable at $49.99. And they're leather.
The shoes are by Kenneth Cole Reaction. Aren't they fun? There are 3 other colorways on the site: gray/black/yellow, black, and navy/fuschia/cream. I wear so many plain clothes in these shades. The shoes should be a nice accent to an otherwise dull ensemble.
