Do you remember this dress that I posted about a looooong time ago?
Well, when I made the dress I also started making a matching jacket to go with it but of course that didn’t get done. The poor thing sat the ‘I’ll do it later’ basket in my sewing room growing more and more morose. Occasionally I would spare it a few words of encouragement such as “oh right this, I should finish this”, but generally it was a pretty depressing time to be a half finished jacket.
Basically the idea was to turn my sleeveless dress into a not-so-sleeveless dress for occasions of incliment weather. I used some white vintage rick rack with gold threads in it for the sleeves and neck which was almost as fun as saying ‘rick rack’ but not quite.
Extra karma points to anyone who spots my neon chartreuse panda print PJ pants sticking out the bottom of my skirt but doesn’t comment.
