Follow along as I sew what I wear, cook and garden.

At least on line at Net a Porter. I swear I have this fabric, or one that's pretty close to it. I bought 2 yards of Oscar de la Renta wool blend boucle on sale from Fine fabrics last winter and it has been waiting for inspiration. I love this casual style in a dressier fabric. Wow, a boucle motorcycle jacket! I don't know how this would look on me, but there are several patterns available for jackets very similar to this one. I even have them in several issues of Burda magazine. I would make a muslin of this just because I am unsure of the look on me. But the length is about right and easy to adjust anyway. It has very few details, so a pretty easy jacket to make. Inspiration at last!
I have been sewing since I was a teenager, mostly self taught. I sew for myself, with some some occasional sewing for my daughter. I love garment sewing and will only sew home dec if desperate. I love to cook and read and try to avoid cleaning as much as possible.
