Uptown Funk Pink Jacket

I was inspired to make a pink jacket by Bruno Mars in his music video Uptown Funk.  I used pink satin to make McCall's M7332 jacket pattern with a satin floral print for the sleeve cuffs and the lapel.  I added a hat and sunglasses to style myself after Bruno Mars.

I would make a different variation of this jacket (like View D) again for fall.  Next time I think I would prefer to use a heavier weight fabric - maybe wool.  I think the vest would be a great addition to my wardrobe also.

Drawstring Pineapple

Here's the latest Player 2 Patterns sewing pattern - the Drawstring Pineapple Pouch.   Such a cute pattern to sew up and give as a gift or to store things in.  The PDF pattern is available for sale in my Etsy Shop.

Springtime Floral Jumpsuit

Just finished this look in time for spring.  I've made Very Easy Vogue V9075 before - both the dress and the jumpsuit.  And I have even more fabric that I've already purchased to make it again.  Next time I will be making the dress from View A, but adding the sleeves from View B.

On the way back from this photoshoot, I went through the drive-thru for a coffee and the girl at the drive-thru window said she loved my outfit.  Then she called another girl over to the window to see it.  That made my day :)
