Sneak Peek

I'm on a sewing roll.  I completed three tops (!) and am almost finished with another jacket (Jalie 2559).



This print is SO far out of my comfort zone for jackets - even though I bought the fabric with the sole intention of making a jacket.  Cray right?  The colors are BRIGHT.  Brilliant.  Almost neon.  These colors are so loud I can't hear myself think when I'm in the same room with this jacket.  But you know what?  I'm going to rock the hell out of it when I'm finished. 

Wait.  Are floral jackets still in?

    1. You speak the truth! I normally don't follow trends as evidenced by my love of boot-cut jeans!

    1. Thanks Michelle. I'm almost finished! Pesky notched (or shall I say 'botched') collar gets me every time.

  9. Your jacket is gorgeous, can't wait to see it finished. I have some bright fabrics that I've been eyeing off for jackets and just not quite ready to jump into it. After seeing yours I think I might go pattern hunting to see what would work well. Love it!
