Jacket progress

Rounding third base... I still have to sew the lining sleeves onto the lining bodice, then attach the lining and facing to the jacket. I can do that in one night, right? Hopefully I'll have it complete tomorrrow night. Here is the jacket shell on me. This fabric shows me better where I need to work on fitting issues, but I'm so excited - I like it! I like the color against my skin, I really like the subtle yellow stripes in the fabric... now I can go to sleep smiling. Here are the quick pics I took. Not trying to look pretty - I've been up since 4am and it's 10:13pm now. Off to bed.


  1. Your jacket is beautiful. Do you have a shoulder pad in it? It looks like a small one would eliminate some of the droop and maybe take away some bust drag lines.

  2. Beuatiful! u look great! i love the color too :)
