Next Project: UFO #1, New Look 6619
So, the first of my UFOs to be rectified is New Look 5519, a cute boxy jacket. I believe I started this two years ago. I had a great menswear wool suiting fabric on hand and I decided to make a suit. I completed a nice pencil skirt, and chose this pattern to make a jacket from, and then cut it out and never began the sewing. Though I have made many successful jackets in the past I remain intimidated by them - buttonholes and buttons and linings - oh, my!
I have now gamely started the process of sewing and have put together the main body of the jacket, view C. Next up is adding the sleeves. I'll keep you posted!
