Cold Feet

I'm getting cold feet on my choice for the Designer Knock-Off Contest. After looking at photos of my white suit, I'm thinking that a super cropped jacket isn't going to look right with me being a little on the busty side. I want to try on some bolero length jackets at the stores before I cut out the Rodriguez suit. the meantime, I'm doing a trial run of a Butterick jacket pattern that I've been wanting to sew for some time. I don't want to cut it out yet in my chosen fabric without doing a muslin first. So I chose a floral corduroy that I'm not that particularly fond of. I combined it with some vintage root-beer plaid shirting, using it in some flange seam inserts and some bias binding on the collar and cuffs. Here are some pics so far...

I really like the floral combined with the plaid. What a nice combination.
