Warning: this post is a little picture heavy!
Here is how I will wear it to work...

This is how I will wear it out...
...since it's holiday time and I tend to go out with friends more during this time of the year...here is how I will wear it out.
Love how the sweater jacket dips
a little lower in the back!
...and it covers the important parts!
I'm wearing the McCalls 6844 cardigan with a bow-tied version of the Sewing Workshop Mission Tank and RTW leggings.
Honestly, this is a new closer look than I've normally worn. The recent weight loss made this outfit possible...however, it's also playing havoc with my sewing. All of the side seams on garments have to be adjusted for the inches lost. I know I should be happy but I'm seriously stressing! *LOL*
This is what I'm working on next ~
I pinned this to one of my boards on Pinterest, saw it last week during the cold snap and thought I would love to have this sweater jacket to wear this winter.
Pulled this gray/white ponte from the collection and will add two silver closures that I found at Pacific Trimmings at the neckline and at the bustline also possibly some patch pockets.
I will use this Vogue 8840 pattern which is sadly out of print...
...yes, I'm totally influenced by the pretty jackets that Nikki from Beaute' J'adore just made.
One final picture...of me and Miss Sammy who is 10 months old now and is the sweetest baby evah! Seriously, she has the sweetest disposition so totally different from her brother and sister.
Up next is The Fabric Inspiration Dress...
...as always more later!
