I follow Nina Garcia on Instagram. As I've mentioned before, Instagram is just a plethora of inspiration for me. I love it. I was scrolling one day and I saw this photo of Nina showing how she wore a blue shirt with various skirts during New York Fashion Week. I loved all of the skirts, but the Dior car wash skirt stood out the most.
Other designers also showed these skirts:

And sewing IGer SewingCurves pointed me in the direction of the perfect pattern -- Vogue 8002!
This pattern was released in 2004, and is long out of print. So, I went right on over to eBay, located it and hit that "BUY IT NOW" button. And a few days later, it was in my mailbox. Happy Dance!!! I already know this will be a "Fall Fashion Moment" for me, so I'm going to go ahead and plan for two: black wool and a wool tweed. There's no point in even acting as if one option will be enough. Y'all know how obsessive I can become over a pattern I fall in love with.
These will be coming soon!
