...yes, I said Fall ya'll. Although Georgia temperatures constantly soar up to 100 degree, it's nice and cool in my sewing room - Thank God! Makes you wonder why my post title references Fall. Well, I've had two light weight knit jackets on my make list
since last fall that I just couldn't find the time to sew up. I decided that now
would be an excellent time to tackle them so when they will be all ready for Fall. I'm trying to work smart for a change; here's the first of the two:
I made this simple pattern in a black pontederoma knit 3 or 4 years ago, and really didn't like it. Turns out that that black jacket ended up being the most worn garment I've ever made. When temperatures start to drop this is the jacket I usually reach for. Every time I wear it I find myself thinking, "I really need to make this jacket in another color", but just never got around to doing it. So I just went ahead and knocked it out ahead of time this weekend. I think I need a brown one as well but will probably use a different pattern.
I also managed to finish up another Simplicity 8128
, this time for myself. I tell you I hate what a bust dart does to a stripped fabric. That being said I will wear this top even though stripe matching is impossible in the side seams due to the bust dart.
I have the entire week off, so happy sewing to me and to you. Hope everyone has a safe and happy Fourth of July...
