In The Spring of Things!

In my last post, I talked about the weather. So after the massive amount of snow and then extreme cold temperatures, now there is light at the end of the tunnel. We now have forecasts for the coming week in the 40s and even 50s (with rain). But, God is still Good! All that snow will be almost gone! Yay!
I have two jackets that have been lingering in my sewing room for probably over a month. In the past week, I was able to get them both to an almost finished stage. The first one is McCalls 5670 in a silk that I purchased at Gail K's about three years ago. I finally decided on this pattern and can't wait to complete. The other is Simplicity 2645, a textured crepe from fabric.com years ago when we first discovered them. Just hemming and buttonholes & buttons are all that is needed on both so next time I post, they'll be done!

These jackets will work great during the rest of our chilly weather season. I will be making a dress to go with the McCalls jacket and I have a skirt already for the wedgewood blue.

We had some temps in the 40s today. Isn't it refreshing after that long cold snowy spell most of us just experienced? I know where I live we'll have at least six more weeks of cold and snow, but oh how I want to begin sewing for spring!

The embroidery gives it a nice touch. Nice way to welcome spring.

Both jackets look great. I'm so glad that the snow is melting. It's been hard. And can you believe it? In the 50's today. Incredible.

Both of these are very pretty jackets and adding a skirt and a dress will make them awesome outfits!

Hey, I see your jacket. It's very nice. Love the design of the fabric too. Your Crepe jacket has Soring written all over it. I have that pattern too but just haven't gotten around to it yet. Keep up the good work. ;)
