Simplicity A1738/2150

I wear jeans A LOT so I've been wanting to make a few jackets to dress them up.  This is the first jacket I've made in about 20 years so I thought I'd pick an easy one and this was definitely fit the bill.  I'm wearing a simple white tank underneath and the addition of the jacket, killer shoes and a little bling definitely increase the WOW! factor.

Pattern Description:   Misses loose cut jackets

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it? I think so

Were the instructions easy to follow? Definitely

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? No dislikes

Fabric Used: A beautiful ponte knit I got from Fabric Mart Fabrics.  It sewed like butta

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: Made as is. 

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?  I may sew it again but I would definitely recommend it to others. 

Conclusion: This pattern is OOP as it was a part of I believe the "Sew Simple" line that Simplicity has now discontinued BUT this jacket is also one of the views on Simplicity 2150 so you can still get it if you want it.

Another Mimi G Double Peplum Mini

I made this before and reviewed it here  I started this one a little while ago and then as often happens got distracted but I REALLY wanted to wear it so I finished up the last little hem last night.  I don't really have much else to say about this one other than I love it and will probably be making it again at some point, but I'm going to try to move on . . . for now.
