I had intentions on adding bias tape to the seams but since it's a little too large I won't...I'll save that for jacket #2. I think it's a solid pattern despite my issues with the collar. It fits well and went together quickly. I will not add interfacing on #2 if I use a similar weight ponte. I will only interface the buttons and button hole areas. Well and the collar.
I wore it all day yesterday and it was pretty comfy. Due to the shoulders being too large, I ended up rolling the sleeves up (it's striped on the inside!). I thought it gave it a more casual look that helped with the large shoulders
At Charming Charlie with my favorite girl! :) We had lunch at Smash Burger then bought some cool accessories!
Weird puckery collar deal. Meh.

So, instead of getting all worked up, I continued ahead with my SWAP plans. I made this top, McCall's 6796 in a light jersey knit. It's black with a silvery stripe throughout. But it's kind of see through! Oops! I hate that I'll have to wear a cami under it (cami + top + some type of jacket or sweater because it's sleeveless) but...it was pretty easy to view the cleavage in the bathroom and those lights suck.
You can see Lily's boobs!!!! LOL!

I started my pants and got to the zipper and completely blanked on what to do. I'll be refreshing myself with YouTube vids! They're a black/grey fabric and will have a purple zipper and purple hem tape - yep! :)
After the pants will be a button front shirt in light purple and a white top (probably Maria Denmark's Kimono Tee).
I cut a vest too. That I plan to make in an animal print. Me. Animal print. We'll see if I wear it. I'm making it in fleece so as to not get too broken hearted over it if I hate it. Fleece is cheap. I can always make one out of nice fabric if I love it!!
Lastly, I have taken over my lunch bag to be a project bag for the socks I'm knitting. So I quickly (like in under 10 minutes), sewed this little bag to tote small in progress knits.
