Good Bye RTW

I have given up buying Ready-to-Wear clothing for one year in favor of making my clothes. I joined   Goodbye Valentino site. I am refraining from buying ALL outerwear, dresses, tops, pants, shorts, sweaters, coats, exercise clothes, jeans and bathing suits. So I will continue to do my window shopping on line any copying what I see. Although after joining the site,  I did order 2 pair of shoes from 6pm, because you can buy all the shoes you want LOL.
I have had my eye on this St John jacket that retails for 1295.00. I purchased similar fabric while in LA last summer.

I am going back on the road in March so I know this is going to be a challenge. While on the road I could not sew, so I shopped.  
So with that said, stay tuned

You can do it. I haven't bought any RTW in two years! If I can so can you!

Hi Denise,

You can do it! I love SJK, and have made garments from their fabric. Good luck!

I can't believe the jacket is so expensive! But just as well we can sew. Looking forward to seeing your jacket. I'm in if you want to share the pattern when you're done.

I agree, you can do it! My closet is predominantly all my own creations and I love it!

I stand nervously on the edge of taking the pledge! I came across your blog thru Goodbye Valentino and just wanted to say how much I enjoy it..

Thank you, I appreciate all of your comments. Myra I wish I was so creative but I am not. I get a kick out of copying designer cloths. People think I have lots of money LOL
