I am really loving the draping trend and decided I needed more drape-styled items in my closet. What better way to do that than to make my own (drape vest). Initially I had wanted to make this out of grey jersey, but when I came up short (and the closest thing I could find was $10/metre), I had to change my plan. Since I needed three and a half metres, I wanted to keep the costs down (in case it didn't turn out). I found this really gauzy muslin which was perfect, especially at $2.50 a metre. I brought it home and got to work immediately, and this was the result, and I love it!

On another note, this was suppose to be an outfit that prevelantely outlined the look of black and navy together, however, these photos don't exactly do the colour combo justice, so, use your imagination.

* A few of you kindly pointed out I used pumpkin pie filling for my pumpkin bread/muffins and that was a total mistake!  I didn't even realize myself that that's what I had used - I meant to get pumpkin puree, not that stuff.... that combined with all that sugar (honestly, what was I thinking?!) - no wonder it tasted to good!

Love how the vest turned out. I don't think I could have as many nail polishes as you do shoes, but it would be nice :)
