These are my sewing adventures as I wander around trying to build a new wardrobe.

Zipper front jacket
Pardon the wrinkles but I had been to church and lunch before I could get a picture taken. I could not figure out what to wear on Easter and the ugly prom dress cut into my sewing time. I made this jacket at the end of last year. I took me a while to finish it. I had leftover fabric so Saturday night, I made the skirt. The jacket is drafted from PMB and the fabric is a heavy doubleknit that came out of the stash. I ran out of time, so I didn't add the right shoulder pads and you can see the ones that I used sticking out of the collar. I'm still working on learning how to get the fit right with this program. This is the first jacket that I have finished and worn so it is getting better.
