While the new Mrs. Urban (OH, how I love that last name) is off somewhere honeymooning (and apparently beforehand, moonlighting), I’ve been working away on the Nicole camisole.

I use the term *camisole* lightly – this is probably going to be worn more as a vest over another sheer shirt – or any variety of other shirts. I also plan on wearing it solo – so I’ve made its lacey-ness more suggestive than revealing.

I love the way this is turning out – it is not a Victorian romp – more like a modern feminine stroll that might work for the night out or for the street. Which is exactly how I have been directing my wardrobe – I want it to have a dual nature – depending on what you pair it with, it can go day to night quite easily. Which is what a Working Girl without a battalion of stylists needs – wearable, usable, knitted clothes.

But if I could, I would certianly want to have Ms. Kidman’s wardrobe – almost everytime I see her, she’s wearing something I would absolutely love to have. From her award show frocks to her public appearances, she really sets a modern, feminine tone that is rarely seen elsewhere.

My whimsical nod to her stylings remains to be finished – I thought it would be done this weekend, but something else got in the way…

With a bang – if you can believe it, I’ve had dial-up all this time because I wanted to see what my design work for clients looked like at that speed. But Lorri – it’s a brand new day…

    Wow! Welcome to DSL. I can’t believe your fortitude. Dial-up is v-e-r-y s-l-o-w. Nicole is looking lovely! I hope to see another ChicKnit pattern for sale soon. (hint, hint). So subtle, no?

  2. Scout says:

    Wait a minute. You have had dial-up up until now? Seriously? That’s NUTSO!!!!

    I know! BUT, I was designing web pages for clients and believe it or not, NOT all the world is high speed connected. I had to see how fast pages would load in the least speedy realm…

    AND, chalk it up to 1. Laziness; & 2. Not being available for the Cable Guy to make a call because most days I’m out on photo assigments.

    So I’m trying ATT’s offer and they did a remote hook-up.

    I went to Paris last summer and to the Chanel flagship store and I nearly DIED because right there in front of me was Nicole’s wardrobe! And it was still heinously expensive!

    Welcome to the wonderful world of high speed internet! I hope Nicole will be coming to KIP on Thursday!

    This is one cami I’m dying to see finished. You’re so gifted when it comes to styling your clothes (and not just your knitted clothes, either)!

    As for high speed vs. low speed, I think at least 50% of the people who visit my site are on dialup, which is why I have so many photos in popup windows. Not everyone has DSL accessible to them, if anything because of where they’re located.

  7. Leslie says:

    Nicole is looking very promising. Can’t wait to see it finished.

    You are going to love high speed! I’m wearing CeCe today and she is so lovely! Thank you for another great design. (Details on Friday)

  9. Leslie says:

    I’m with you, La Kidman can dress. Same goes for Renee Zellweger, though she needs to play “keep away” from her plastic surgeon from now on.

    Wow, gorgeous!

  11. Stella says:

    WOW. I can’t believe you’ve been on dial-up all this time, making this fab site! It’s a whole new world, isn’t it??? :)
    Nicole looks very promising. I like dual use clothes, too, sexy, yet ok to wear to work.

  12. Delica says:

    Nicole is looking gooood. BTW – saw The Breakup on the 4th – it makes me want to visit Chicago – you’ve got one good looking city!

  13. Wanda says:

    Great job on Nicole. A wonderful-looking knit and I think its versatility is a great idea. I can’t believe you were on DSL for so long either, amazing.

  14. claudia says:

    DSL = life changing.

    Well, for some of us.


  15. Leah says:

    Dial-Up? Seriously?

    Welcome to the new age!

    Nicole is going to be the bomb! Seriously cute!!

    Wow. You had dial-up?? *boggle*
