Denim Jacket

Work has been getting busier and busier but there's no rest for the weary! Last weekend (all 1 day) I got around to making a jacket/top I designed a few days prior on a whim before falling asleep. I used some denim I was given at work, the buttons (familiar anyone?) and grosgrain I had laying around at home. I draped the pattern on my form and got sewing. It's double breasted and fully lined in the self fabric.

Perhaps the trickiest part was all the ribbon-work done prior to sewing the pieces together.

A couple pics upon completion.

A quick snap on my way to a meeting.

Perfect for the last few brisk days of spring before the summer swelter!
