My First Jacket

I started this jacket about two weeks ago and I can honestly say, I am hooked on jackets. The pattern is Butterick B4865-

Unlined raglan sleeve jacket has collar, sleeve and length variations

I made view D using a wool blend with grey, yellow, burgandy and turquoise stripes. I wanted to make this jacket out of this fabric so that it would work with other pieces in my closet. It's still too warm here in the South to wear this just yet, so I can't wait until that first cold day! Until next time, happy sewing!!

Fay's Gone Away!!!

Goodbye Fay! Thanks for the much needed rain here in GA, but like my mom says, "I'm glad to see you come and glad to see you go!" I have finished most of my sewing that I mentioned in my last post, but have been lazy in getting the pics posted. Now that the rain has stopped, I will be getting outside to have DH take the pics of my handiwork. Hope to have them posted soon!

I have been working on a list of pieces that I would like for Fall/Winter, so I will be posting them soon. Of course, I heart Anthropologie but hate the prices, so will be trying to "make the look" as close as I can. Hope to have that soon, too.

Until then, happy sewing!!
