I've had a Productive Day

Today was a good sewing day!  I finished the jacket, made a new pair of black pants and cut out Butterick 5415.  A very good sewing day, indeed!

First a pic:

It's late so I will share construction details on the jacket tomorrow. 

The Butterick 5415 dress:

from the wool that I bought with Elizabeth from Mood Fabrics...


The wool has been pretreated...the pattern pieces altered and everything cut out...I will finish this up next weekend.  I feel a little calmer now because I have plans to make a dress! *LOL*

...as always more later!

  17. That's a very pretty jacket and really, the whole outfit looks terrific. I don't know why you don't care for pants beause they are very becomming on you. They lengthen your body and are very slimming. It's a good look for you.
