I was really lucky last week, I won the Sewing Dork's (please do pop over and pay a visit, she's a hoot!) Dear My Kids pattern giveaway. For my prize, I picked the Chic Vintage Swing Jacket. (The Sewing Dork also made this jacket, you can peak at her project here).
I made a 6T jacket out of Fancy Nancy satin flannel back and hot pink broad cloth. [I have posted before about how I am torn about using licensed fabric, but right now Miss Lily just prefers Fancy Nancy to Amy B (hand me a tissue).]
(Image via Joann)This is the fourth reversible garment I have sewn in four weeks (tunic, capelet, apron). I just love reversible clothing. When you make reversible clothes, you really feel like you are moving through that fabric stash. I also like reversible clothing because all of the seams are neatly covered and the garments have such a professional look.
Here is how the jacket turned out.
Here is the photoshoot. Made someone happy.
That's why I sew.
