Just in case you missed it, there's something really awesome going on at Talbot's these days. For the past few seasons, they've really been trying to re-vamp their image and put out a product that's a little younger, a little more streamlined, and a whole lot cool.

I got a new catalog in the mail today, and there is so much good about it I have to share it (also because my memory is so poor I have to post the things I love so I can remember in two months when it's time to start sewing for spring).

In no particular order, these are the things I would love love love to make:

The lace top.

The swing jacket (that color! I swoon).

The ruffle jacket.

The mum skirt.

The skinny dressy cargo.

The wrap dress.

The satin glamourak jacket (I dunno what a glamourak is, but me likey).

The mac trench.

The double pocket jacket.

Don't worry, I don't plan on making all of those jackets. I need more outerwear like I need more acne, but I do like the ideas.

Oh, and I started another vintage project yesterday, shut up! I know. It's another coat. I said shut it! I can overindulge in outerwear if'n I want to. I hope to post progress this weekend. We shall see.


  1. Wow I love the swing jacket and the ruffle jacket. Hey you can never have too many coats and jackets!

  2. I don't know what a glamourak is either, but if you make me one I'll pay ya. Cute!

  3. Ooh I love the skinny dressy cargo, and the lace top - together!
