2013 ESSENTIAL TOPS SEW-A-LONG FINISHED PROJECTS

June 26, 2015

HAPPY...

Happy Friday everbody. 
I'm still in hot pursuit of finishing my Simplicity 1421 blazer.  I did complete the very scary (to me) sleeve vents.  They turned out not be too hard after all.
The "That Black Chic" Blazer Sewalong" officially ends today; but due to sewing machine problems yesterday I was thrown behind just a bit.  But, with all indications of today's work I'll probably finish up tonight or early tomorrow.

Hope your Fri was all YAY!!!

  3. Hey Ms. Faye, I hope your Friday was a great one too! Your jacket is looking very, very good and I was happy to read that those cuffs were not as bad as they look. Thank you so much for reviewing this pattern first, it gave me the courage to move forward on mine! LOL, I have to agree with one of the ladies who said that ball resembled hair… Because that's what I was thinking! Good luck with finishing your jacket, can't wait to see it!
