Thanks for comments

I really appreciate comments from readers. It is always nice to know there are others out there with sewing issues and to read how they have solved things.

Marji commented on the jacket included with the dress pattern. I agree that the jacket is just not for everyone and is not necessarily my style. I was thumbing through the Talbot's catalog last night and found a sheath style dress with a jacket that is very much like this one from McCalls. It looked a little shorter and was shown with a sheath style dress but with a different neckline.

I also have this one in mind, using View C but collar from View A. And this one and modifying the collar as I think it will be overwhelming on me.

I also like this Vogue one but all the views are shown with pants, so may not work with sheath style. Or maybe a duster style like this one?

Give me your thoughts by voting below:
What jacket should I make to go with the dress?

  1. Linda, I always love to read about your sewing adventures and I learn so much. I am just catching up and wanted to say I'm sorry to hear about your dad. My dad just lost his wife of 35 years to Alzheimer's right before Christmas. What an awful disease. He refused to put her in a home and the past year was very difficult, as she couldn't walk or talk. But he wouldn't have it any other way. I'm so happy that you have your aunt and uncle AND that he is in a care facility. That is best. Hang in there!

  2. Linda, I echo Susan's sentiment about reading your blog and about your dad. I lost my father two years ago due to kidney, stroke, and high blood pressure. God bless you and your family.

    I viewed the list of possible jackets. I really like four out of the five. Two I have myself. It's a hard choice, but I'm going with M5527
