After I found that fabulous navy wool jersey at such a great price, I had to order more “wool knit” from the same place. As it turns out, though, that’s a crucial difference in terms: You might picture wool jersey (i.e., t-shirt fabric) but if you order wool knit, you end up with something like the world’s nicest stretchy terrycloth. So I went with a novelty top.

This silk Anthropologie blouse had a similar shape to the pattern I used for the first Vegas dress, so I thought I’d go for a similar look, sans giraffe.

While I’m not sure how successful my copy is, it didn’t cost $228. That might be enough of a success right there.
