I've always been a fan of asymmetrical styling, so it really caught my eye when the Good Wife lead character, portrayed by Julianna Margulies, wore a black mock-wrap knit dress.
I went online to get a better look at the dress's details, and fell in love with its styling which included "leather" elbow patches and zippered sleeve vent.

Unfortunately for me, this pattern is out-of-print, and would cost me approximately $30 if I bought it directly from Vogue Patterns. I shared with you how much I LOVE a pattern sale, so the thought of paying full price for this pattern caused me to hyperventilate. I was, however, able to find it on eBay for about half the price - still more than I'm used to paying, but I can live with this price. So, it's my goal to make my version of the Good Wife dress by January 31st - once I find the time (wink).
Also, I bought these platforms by Market at DSW today - on sale, of course!! Oh my, but they are lovely, and I can so see wearing them with this dress. I'll keep you posted on my progress.
