Ready for Valentine's day

Happy Valentine's Day!!!

I hope you have a great day and eat lots of chocolate!  I know I will. 

I love to wear red and Valentine's day is the perfect day to flaunt it.  This Jacket is a McCall's 5527 pattern that I slightly tweaked.  I used a wool cashmere blend that is like "butar"(butter said with accent) that I purchased in NYC. 

The back with a small belt that I added.

One of the changes I made is to fold the  sleeve ruffle in half. 
I used the lining to the edge technique, but added a bias strip to the neckline after I completed the jacket because I did not like the look of the lining on the edge.  You can see that the lining is loose and just hangs free from the jacket. 

I took a page from a man's jacket and used a silk stripe for the sleeve lining.

I hope you enjoy your day, I know I will Dr. P is going to cook for me.

Happy Sewing,
Michele P
