They can be so goofy. I had just put on the jacket to take some pics this morning and met DH coming up the stairs. He says, "So it's done now?" And I said, "Uh, yes. And by the way, I was *wearing* it last night when we went to the store and walked the dogs." Him: "Really? Well, it looks very nice." Yeah, sneaky way to escape that one. ;-)

So, here's a pic of me in the jacket. The color is off and I look as purple as the jacket for some reason that isn't happening in real life, but otherwise it's not a completely bad shot. Belinda asked me, if after all the work, whether I liked it or if it needed some time in the "Magic Wardrobe." I'm happy to report that I love it and all the time spent was worth it. I really did enjoy the project a lot. It's good to be challenged and I feel like I've learned a few things in the process.

I spent some time this morning cleaning up the disaster a/k/a the sewing room and now I'm ready to start thinking about what's next. So many choices! But since it's Superbowl Sunday and the pregame stuff is already on, I don't think I'll be making a whole lot of progress on that today. After today, no more football for months and months. Sob.


  1. Glad I can breathe now!

    Jacket looks great. I know it was challenging but you always come through!

  2. It's beautiful!! I need to learn some fitting techniques, I want to make my clothes fit as nicely as yours do.

  3. Debbie, the jacket is great. You are a good problem solver. You do look purple don't you? Strange. Anyway, love your jacket.
    Men are strange. Whenever I get dressed up (which is seldom) and I ask my husband how I look (he is a snappy dresser) if I look OK, he says "Your look fine." What does THAT mean?????

  4. Congrats! Your new jacket looks so good on you. The topsitiching is superb!

  5. So happy that you are happy with it. I think it looks terrific! And isn't it wonderful that it doesn't have to have a stay in the magic wardrobe closet? I know this was lots of work and I enjoyed following your progress. Excellent!

  6. Excellent and I so enjoyed watching your progress! Looks absolutely wonderful!

  7. It's fabulous, Debbie!

    You look purple 'cause it's *cold*!!! LOL!

    Enjoy your nice jacket.

  8. Looks great on, love your dh's quick recovery for his comment. Gotta love them.

  9. I know I commented over at SG or on your review, but I want to say again how impressed I am with the way you tackled this as a process and didn't let it go. It looks great and your fit is excellent.
    Enjoy it!


Thank you for each and every comment. I appreciate them all, but I have to be honest and let you know that I'm usually bad about answering questions. I hope you understand that there just isn't enough time in the day to do everything I want to do.
