Close, but no cigar!

The jacket is almost complete. I only have to hem it, insert the shoulder pads and topstitch the front and collar.

There are some things I would do different next time-wider front facings and tweak the fit a little more. It is snug in the high hip area and could have taken a deeper seam at the upper back. However this jacket will be OK! Since it does not button, nor was that intended the high hip will not be a big issue.

Going to CURVES has changed my anatomy some-Good Thing!-I just need to tweak my measurements for PMB as well as for fitting of other patterns.

When this project is complete, I am going to make the bag using my embellished fabric. I need a fun project as a break from "serious" sewing.


  1. Linda ~ can't wait to see the finished pictures of the jacket and dress together! You must feel like you have really accomplished your goal. Ummmm, pictures soon, please!!!!
