|It wasn't the original silhouette that I had in mind but I think it is pretty cool. I had to make a different smaller motifs for sleeve and to smooth out the curve of the front.|

|I was thinking of leaving that keyhole at the shoulder and then just stabilizing it with a row of single crochet|

|I am thinking that down the center front I am going to do a couple rows of single crochet and put in invisible hook and eye closures.|
There is a still a lot of work to be done. The part I hate the most is weaving in all the ends...Then I am going to put an edging on the sleeves to make them look a little more finished and then add a knitted mandarin collar. I am hoping to get most of this done tonight.
In other news, my earrings have been gaining in popularity and have been worn by a few of the more popular girls on lookbook.nu. Here are some pics from the photo shoots they did:
|Anastasia Siantar from Jakarta, Indonesia rocks the white discs|
|Fashionista, Naz Isik from Turkey but currently residing in California loves the Egyptian inspired style|
I am really excited that the earrings are getting such great reviews and that they have gone international! You can check out Naz's blog at www.ohthesavoirfaire.com/search/label/DJC%20Existence and you can see Anastasia's at www.brownplatform.com/search/label/DJC%20Existence. That's all I can report for now because I need to get back to work!
