Can't wait to see all these projects, they are so inspiring. I'm going to have to look into some of the Merely Susan fabrics, I just start looking, SO pretty. I've been thinking blush and rose too for some of my fall colors since I don't look good in more traditional fall colors. I've been eyeing Quince and Co yarns, I've never yet bought from them, and I really need to stash bust first, but oh there are some really pretty ones, I liked the sweetwater shade of Crane, but I'm liking the rose you have, it looks prettier than their photo, that was the shade frisco right? I also like Dye for Yarn and Dye for Wool on etsy. I have some yarn, haven't used it yet, but just love their color and fiber selection.
I just finished a caftan type top for a friend using the same gauze fabric you have in a mustard color. If you haven't washed yours yet, it shrinks a lot! I was supposed to add sleeves to the top I made but didn't have enough fabric after washing. I also looked at the houndstooth check you purchased, almost bought some. Spent today making a newsboy cap out of brown herringbone wool. Not quite finished but hope it looks ok on me, I may be too old for it but have always wanted one.
I think the smock style dress would look great with boots and be really warm and you would wear it more than you think because you could just grab it and go. You said you are going to work, Are you a piano teacher? , I also have a lot of hobbies, I like to embroider and I like paper crafts and felt crafts that my grandmother taught me and I love Earl Grey tea and Lemon Ginger tea. Thanks for sharing your beautiful projects. All of them look super!
I've been making corduroy tote bags with a gingham cotton lining and a little embroidery on the front! It's so cute (not to toot my own horn) I think I even use the same rust cord as you, Kaufman? Their new cord line is nice!
Oh, if you do decide to wax a jacket, if you haven't done it before, it's an absolute pain, I'd recommend buying a tinned wax for that usage. I've waxed a couple coats with melted beeswax, a brush, and a hairdryer... first of all it takes forever and is likely to be uneven, secondly the waterproofing doesn't last very long so you have to wax it about every 2-3 months to maintain that. I had a thicker cotton coat and the wax bled through to the lining. You can also buy prepared waxed cotton which is quite beautiful (and even)! It's more spendy, but after having been there and done that, I'd say don't be there and do that if you can help it! Stick to waxing wraps, not coats lol!
