Simplicity 2285 view A

 This Jacket was a breeze to sew up everything went together as it was meant to and I think it looks a lot like the picture from the pattern envelope (pictured left). I used the size 10. My fabric was from Spotlight and they called it suiting its light cool and woven with black and white which in the photos give it a grey look. It wont be really warm but it is the kind of fabric that doesn't breath. Photos are by my 5 y/o she is getting better. I think this would look good in a light colour too so I may do that. This pattern also comes with a cape the has the same look to the front. So if I find a nice fabric I will make that too.

I HAVE A Janome 744D so exciting.

I am really enjoying sewing with my overlocker it makes such a difference to the finish of clothing. I saved up and my Mum gave me some Birthday money. Then for christmas she gave me lots of colours of thread to use and something to keep them in. I also used some other Birthday and Christmas money to buy my first set of pinking shears.
