Sad news

I was shocked and saddened today to hear the news that Alexander McQueen had taken his own life. I don't know what to say except that my heart breaks for the pain he must have been in.

Over the past couple of weeks (whilst in my sewing slump) I have revisited the Alexander McQueen Kimono jacket published some time ago now on SHOWstudio.

This jacket has been on my wishlist for ages and I have recently been toying with the idea of at least making a toille/muslin if not a finished jacket. I will definitely be doing that now, as a small tribute to Mr McQueen's talent.

Would anyone like to sew-along as a way to pay our respects?

Funny Josie that I thought about the same jacket when I read of his death in the newspaper. Strange that people who seem to have it all don't feel as happy as they might.
