2013 ESSENTIAL TOPS SEW-A-LONG FINISHED PROJECTS

October 5, 2016

Work Wear Wednesday...

... needed to wear pink today in support of our Health Care Sciences Department's Breast Cancer Awareness Campaign.  I also needed a light topper to cover my arms for the 65 degree temperature early this morning.  65 is chilly here in Georgia folks.  There's not much pink to be found in my closet, but I remembered the knit jacket that I'd made back in July for days like this.  Simplicity A1738 oop I'm sure to the rescue.

  1. This is a very pretty jacket, Faye. I like the princess seams on the back and the stylish lapels on the front. Isn't it great to get such a nice jacket from a 97 cent pattern! Happy sewing!

  11. I really appreciate that most of your clothes can be worm to work. Fancy dresses are pretty, but how often do they get taken out of the closet. You make pretty clothes that are wearable. And that jacket is really pretty. That pink is a great color on you, too.

    1. Patricia, that is exactly what I was thinking about earlier today about fancy dresses. Classic, comfortable clothing fit's my lifestyle perfectly and that is what I need to sew.

  14. Another lovely version of this jacket. I bought this pattern after I saw an earlier version of yours. Have it pulled and trying to find the exact fabric that I feel would work.
