Yes! Another sew along! The challenge is to make something that will challenge you. Okay, at this point in my sewing life ~ almost everything is a challenge. I've been learning how to alter patterns recently. This is especially important since I have a multi-size body. What do I mean by that? Well, my upper body is usually on the smaller size of a pattern envelope, while my lower body is usually on the larger size of a pattern. That wouldn't be a big deal if the two sizes I needed were both in the same envelope! Yup, my booty needs it's own pattern envelope (does that even make sense!!??)
So that's always a challenge... but I'm learning to deal with it. Learning how to grade to fit my hips has been an eye-opening experience (my hips are that wide?!) Oops, didn't mean to digress....

Well, it never really got cold here because where I live there are mostly palm trees:

Anyways, I'm sewing a jacket for Fearless February. I have two in mind.
Sewaholic's Cordova and Simplicity 1699:
|White and black eyelet|
|For Cordova ~ Aqua Linen|
|For Cordova ~ Orange/ Coral? Linen|
And for Simplicity 1699 ~ the white and black cotton eyelet.
Do you like the idea of a linen jacket? What about an eyelet one? What would your color choice be? (not limited to colors here)
Wish me luck!!
