Snakeskin has been ALL OVER the runways for the past few years. Okay, actually it’s probably on its way out on the runways — but it’s still going strong on the streets. And I love it! I’ve decided I NEED a snakeskin jacket. NOW!
So here’s a sneak peek at my current project:
I’m pretty much satisfied with the muslin. I dithered over whether to do a collar, but finally decided to go with just the lapels. It suits me better — feels a little bit more laid-back. I also considered a shorter length like in the inspiration pics, but I’m thinking this is going to look pretty smashing with leggings, so I’m going longer.
Now there’s just one problem. I don’t seem to have any snakes around offering to donate their skins (which is probably just as well, actually). So I’ll just have to settle for a snakeskin print. Surprise! JoAnn had this:
It was just waiting to come home with me! I’m so eager to finish this — stay tuned!
