Trina is ready to travel back in time and steal Barbara Walter's job. Or at least steal her husband...
After last week's misguided attempt as a business suit, I was reminded that Trina's strength lies in vintagewear, and I hate anything that ends up looking colorless. I've been wanting to use this great fabric for a long time, but was just waiting for the right outfit to make from it to pop into my head.
I decided to go with a modified 50's/60's jacket with a large notched collar and crossover closure in the front, just to make it different.
If I could start over and make it all again, I would make the collar even larger to go even more over the shoulders, and make the crossover even more pronounced.
Learned experience from this project: If you go with a bold color/pattern with a bold statement in construction, it would probably not be such a bad idea to go bold all the way!
