WSM's Birthday Present

Sew Dad & WSM (wicked step mother) came down for a weekend visit and I gave WSM her birthday present EARLY and in person! I'm really proud of the outcome on this one. It is a reversible jacket. I'm not sure if you can make out the print of the fabric from these pictures. The red has white reindeer's and black Christmas trees, the black and white is hounds tooth. I actually slowed down enough to match up the print on the back seam which felt like a huge achievement for me because I'm always in such a hurry to see the end result that I usually miss/skip little steps like this.....ah maturity in sewing....LOL! I have been wanting this pattern for a few months now, but it has been on back order at the store, so I finally went online and found someone who had it in stock. (Kwik Sew pattern #2829) It went together really easy. The only difficult part was cutting it out. I had one recut because I failed to read the instructions 1st after I read them cutting it out it was easy. I would rate this pattern a 2 on a scale of 1-10. 1 being the easiest.

Most importantly WSM looks really cute in her new holiday jacket!!!!

Cute! Very good job! Jackets seem very intimidating to me for some reason. Maybe I might have to try one out since that one wasn't so hard!

What a great job! Love your fabric choices and excellent on matching the points. Not sure I would have thought of that one myself. You can tell she really loved the jacket. It's always nice when our projects make others smile!
