If you haven't voted yet and are a PR member (you don't have to be a paying member), there are many beautiful collections that deserve your vote.
My last garment is this last minute piece that I only dreamed up Friday night. The contest was over on Sunday so that worked into a lot of work and stress. Why do I do these things?
Here's my inspiration piece from RTW. I bought this shirt for $7.00 just so I could copy the collar. My version is different in most other aspects. This one is very 80's. I made mine with higher armscye and narrower shoulders.
I used an old McCall's shirt pattern as my base and worked from there.
Sunday afternoon right after church, I went at it again. It was done by 4:00 but I still had to take many pictures.
At midnight I still didn't have my composite up but I guess somewhere it wasn't midnight yet because in spite of being late it went through. Whew! What a relief!
Here are a few detail shots.The collar closes with snaps.
The fabric is a light as a feather wool. The jacket is unlined. I thought this piece would add a punch of colour to my Granite Grey wardrobe. I'm still considering shortening it a couple of inches but not sure yet. The buttons are a little heavy for the fabric so I'll be on the lookout for replacements.
I love it like this

Thanks for taking a look. More later from
