I bought some rayon/wool/(poly?) blend (washable!) suiting fabric at  
Fabric Depot a couple of years ago, enough for a suit jacket and two  
pair of slacks. Today, I am cutting out the jacket, to be lined in  
Ambiance Bemburg rayon, for my trip.  I will pair the jacket with  
some RTW rayon blend slacks for now, and make up slacks from the  
stash fabric after I return.

Feeling very virtuous,

Post pictures when the outfit is complete so we can see how purty it is.

More on the black jacket for my trip:  I put the one I was cutting  
out a few days ago aside for another day, I didn't LOVE the wiggly  
crepe-like fabric.  So I found some fabulous black jacquard at  
TSWLTH,  
http://www.joann.com/gilded-age---jacquard-black-cotton-polyester-spandex/13416862.html#q=jacquard&start=6
(it's actually very black-on-black, it doesn't photograph well),  
bought an extra 1/2 yard (50% off coupon!), and today I laid out the  
pattern. Stressing way too much over trying to match the woven  
pattern.  It's black for heaven's sake!  No one but me is ever going  
to know the pattern matches across the horizontal line.  :-} But I  
have plenty of fabric, so I am doing it.
