New Blue Jacket!

When I went on the road trip to Macomb, IL with my peeps last month, one of my purchases was this jacket pattern.  I had tried on the store sample, and liked the way it looked and felt.  Yesterday I found the beautiful batik behind the pattern at SewSassy in Urbana.  I was with my cousins who agreed that the blue would look great with my white hair.  Today being a drizzly, rainy day, I decided to dust off my tailoring skills and dive in!
Ta da!  The pattern said it would take about 3 hours to complete.  It took me a little longer than that, as I always have interuptions!  But the directions were well written, and there was NO frog sewing!  Woot!  It is very light, but will be great for work when I just feel like I want a little jacket to cover up with.  I like the shorter sleeves, as I wash my hands constantly and I don't like damp cuffs!


  1. Very cute, Maggie! I love it! It' looks great on you, and you are looking sassy! Love the weight loss and how it looks on you!
