Finally, something to wear (and post).
I'm still having some trouble posting to Blogger, but at least I have finally finished a garment. It seems like it took me forever. I've made this same outfit twice before with little trouble, but this time a lot seemed to go wrong. I did finish it, however, and from the look of the leaves on the patio, not a moment too soon! I use the Style Arc Sunday Zip Jacket pattern. I was rushing off to a tennis match and didn't take the time for closeups of the details, but I like the trim I have on the cuffs and hood. Later next year I am scheduled to speak to one of my sewing clubs on "One Pattern, Many Looks". I feel I am qualified to do so since I make the same outfit many times, and no one seems to notice. (Can you tell I play a LOT of tennis?)
Here it is again:
I do think it's time for me to venture out a little next time, though! Maybe Style Arc's Steffi Jacket?
