Sheer natural linen batiste at my local JoAnn's...for only $24.99/yard. Sigh.
A pair of half-sleeves I whipped up last week to wear with a dress I ended up not getting time to change into. Blue/teal/gold with a teal lining. Good sleeve practice. And practically free, since the brocade came from a shower curtain. Heh.
Wow. I can't decide what blows me over the most about this painting: the gorgeous dress, the beautiful green sleeves underneath it (surprise!) or that blue and gold tablecloth. I covet that tablecloth.

I love sketching clothing ideas and working out pattern logistics on paper. My BFF gave me this nifty little grid-lined notebook that I carry with me everywhere for when I feel like drawing.
I have this navy silk...hm...
I really should get some underwear and cold-weather layers together before I start any new dresses. Hoods, cloaks, buskins, shoes, braies...and I need a long-sleeved chemise, too. Drat.
