Quite a Drought

I can't believe how long it's been since my last post. I apologize but sometimes life just gets in the way. I haven't been doing a lot of sewing, didn't even do my marathon Christmas pj's. Hopefully 2012 will be better. I finally finished this jacket, which I started last year and had so many problems with the lining I just had to walk away.

I took a deep breath and tackled it again and I'm happy with the finished product, although I'm calling it my coat of many mistakes.

It marinated for so long I can't find the pattern, it's a project runway but I don't remember the number.
The fabric is a herringbone corduroy, my love for the fabric made me persist.

I'll leave you with a picture of our ugly Christmas sweater party at work. We had a blast.

Hopefully more sooner rather than later.

Hello Ms. Lady and welcome back. I believe its Simplicity 2508. You hung in there and the jacket looks great on you.

Love your jacket and it's so great to have you back. I've been missing me some you.

That's a great coat! It looks super. I made that coat, too, and want to make it yet again. Love the ugly Christmas sweaters!

This jacket is great! I think I bought this pattern too, but never got around to making it. (Like so many other patterns I have.)

Tanya, It's good to see you back at sewing. The jacket looks great no matter what the pattern number.
Happy New Year!
