Here finally is the jacket from the suit I made a few years ago (see here and here)... made from free fabric and using Simplicity 4698 ... again. Yes, I do re-use patterns a lot, glad you noticed!
We had some very welcome rain last night. Welcome because it's been so dry lately, and whilst I rejoice in endlessly sunny days with open arms and no complaints we do need the rain so much too... No doubt by the end of winter I will be complaining nonstop about wet weather but for now we are happy. Looking back over my blog I can see it last rained on 21st May... and it is supposed to be winter! Actually it's been quite handy having this little daily snapshot here to remind me of each day's doings and yes, the weather too. My gosh, I can hardly believe I'm stooping to talking about the weather, so stiff, but in a fashion blog it is an immediate and relevant factor in one's apparel choices for that day, so consideration of the weather is quite appropriate so here we go; rain this morning, but fine the rest of the day and not too cold. I'm as warm as toast in this get-up here and happy to have found a way to put on this white elephant of a suit jacket, so all is well... My friend A paid me a compliment on the jacket this morning (without knowing I'd made it, bonus points!) so perhaps it deserves more airings?
