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.

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 Player 2 Patterns Etsy Shop.

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 :)
