Now, I sew to get exactly what I like. If it takes longer to make it, then so be it.
Imagine my delight when I saw this slideshow of Marni's S/S 2017 collection:

BTW, I read the NPR fact-check transcript, but could not bear to watch the debate last night.
Did you read the Politics of Pockets? There's all sorts of good historical stuff about suffragettes, rational dress, the "New Woman", and Hillary Clinton's pantsuits.
Read this story about Susanna, a custom clothier in Beverly Hills who makes some of HRC's pantsuits. Fox and right-wing pundits tried to deflect criticism that Trump-branded clothing is all made abroad in low wage countries by suggesting that HRC's pantsuits are made in Bangladesh. They lie.
Susanna Forest, of Susanna Beverly Hills, has been handcrafting women's suits in the United States since 1976. From design to manufacturing, every step of her process is carried out entirely from her atelier in Beverly Hills, California. Susanna Beverly Hills garments are the product of hundreds of hours of American labor, and women, including Hillary Clinton, can be proud to wear a garment that has been crafted with the absolute most care and skill here in the United States.I have a small quibble. The article says that this white suit she wore at the convention does not have pockets. Click to embiggen the photo. Do you see a faint outline of welt pockets on her jacket just below the waist? Methinks her jacket has a pair of pockets, but they are so skillfully done, they are practically invisible.
