Me-Made-March 2011-March 1

In addition to the McCall's jacket noted in my earlier post from this AM, I wore the dress I made from the same fabric.  You can see the two here on AlmaMarie.  I actually made this jacket and dress in Oct.'07!  Wow-it is going on 4 years old!  The dress is a Vogue pattern and I made a second dress in wool crepe from that pattern.

The fabric is an embossed polyester that looks like a skin or leather of some sort.  I actually saw this same fabric in a beautiful blue color about a year ago and now I wish I had purchased it.  I acquired this from a store called Schoolhouse Fabrics in Floyd, VA.

Interestingly, the same jacket has shown up in a Simplicity pattern that I acquired last year.  The dress shown with that jacket is a nice sheath style dress. 

Today I did not wear anything that I made, but my plans for tomorrow include a top and skirt that I made recently.  More later.


  1. This is a beautiful classy outfit. I really like the fabric too. I can just imagine it in blue!

  2. The jacket and dress are gorgeous. Thes fabric is beautiful.
