Updated pictures of my gray wool jacket

I made this jacket back in July when I was still pregnant. I wore it to church this morning before a cold front blew in. Brrrr, it's cold now. The weather doesn't seem to bother our cat, who just had to get her furry rear end in all my photos.

Doesn't it look way better on an actual body instead of my dressform? I really love this jacket, although it's not at all warm so I am doubting the wool content printed on the bolt when I purchased the fabric. I also made the dress I'm wearing in August 2009.

I am nearly done with an awesome little faux leather vest, although Justin has to head into work this afternoon so I'll likely not get any pictures of it until next weekend. Arg to you winter time change!

  2. Sigh. I am having the hardest time picking out a new jacket to sew. I should go through your archives because you make the best jackets!

  3. What a pretty jacket. I'm new to your blog, and I'm delighted to hear cidell say "you make the best jackets"... If this is an example, I'm looking forward to looking back in time at your others ... I'd like a new jacket too.

  5. Looks fabulous on. The sleeves and shoulders look fine (went back and read your first post). Well done too on getting back into pre baby size clothes!

  6. That is really pretty!! I am looking forward to your faux leather vest. I have been toying with the idea of ordering some. I want to sew it, but I am scared.

  7. You do such lovely work. Beautiful jacket.
    I am looking forward to your faux leather vest, too. I pulled out a piece of faux shearling and almost started a vest project, too.

  10. You wrote exactly what I was thinking after seeing that first photo. The jacket looks better on you than on the dressform. I think the style's altogether flattering.

  13. Love this jacket and it looks great on you! So glad I discovered your blog...I'm really enjoying it. I was once like you with three little ones and can't imagine how you accomplish so much! When you have a chance, could you talk a little about your Brother NX-450. Pros/cons (if any) and would you recommend it? Thanks!

  14. I love the two pieces together! I still can't believe you sewed during pregnancy clothes you wouldn't be able to wear for months. I do not have that kind of vision.

  15. It's so nice to see these clothes on *you* and not just the dressform. Great little outfit!
