Happy Wednesday

Gack! Is it Wednesday already? I have to work in the store today.
I have been pretty busy with some new ideas and my new stash of fabrics that I brought back from India. I am so excited about my latest design which is inspired stolen from the red jacket I am wearing in this picture. I bought this jacket in Hampi and it is was so gosh darn comfy and stylish I just had to make some for my own shops!! I say it WAS comfy because alas, I had to sacrifice it to make the pattern.
By the way, this is my travel agent friend, Mubarik. We are hanging out on a rooftop restaurant in Pahar Ganj. Believe it or not, it's freezing up there!

And here's one of my first jackets....Now I have been told by someone that it reminds them of a Star Wars character...OK, now that's funny because I think they are sortof right, it is kindof gnomish or futuristic in a old school sort of way. What?
It looks fabulous on all sorts of bodies and it comes in lots of colors, not just the Star Wars ones!
BTW, it is never the Barefoot Mistress' (es? what?) intention to sell my wares on this blog, but should it happen, as they say in India, "why not?"
Have a great day, see you for HNT!

Susie that is utterly gorgeous, I love the style of it. Could you email me the price or give me a Url to visit your stuff on line???? I think my sister would love that and she just had an Anniversary and that would make a beautiful gift to send to her. Thanks hun!!! Love the hand art work.

I do like the jacket, although I suppose it's intended more for females than males.

And is there anyway you can sell Mubarik in your store, cause he is so cute, I'd just have to buy him. :)

HUGS...

Lime I was wondering that myself. Could it be a straight jacket?

Very nice looking and I can see where that would be nice and comfy too.

S said...

Yes it wraps and then ties in the back!

Oh btw, sorry Polty, Mubarik is definitely NOT gay.
