Ideas are brewing for the WAD. But I lack the confidence to get out my pencils and actually start sketching some designs. I had started with the idea do grape vines but found an acorn on my bookshelf the other day. I had picked in up, green with promise, when we had our photos taken in St Vincent's Place. It's now brown and smooth and a thing of beauty. So I got to thinking about oak leaves and acorns in burnished gold. Here's some of my inspiration. The lucious third picture is a Napoleonic era military uniform. Breathtaking work! Mine, of course, will be a lot simpler! Depends on how long it takes me! I also found this, a 1930s sketch for a Schiaperelli outfit by the Andre Fashion Studio, with violet oak leaves and red acorns on a gold lame jacket. Think I'm on the right track! Toodle Pip!
