Do you ever make something that you really like and then never wear it? I made this jacket and skirt combo a couple years ago with a gray linen blend I bought from Fabric Mart. And then I promptly hung it in the closet. The jacket is Butterick 5223 and the skirt my first Patrones. The shell is Simplicity 2599 made with a poly satin print from Fabric.com. The shell got worn a couple times and the jacket maybe 2 or three times, but the poor skirt...Nada...no love. Now that I've worn it, I don't know why I waited so long! It was a very comfortable outfit to wear all day at work and with minimal wrinkling. The factory continues to crank out garments. I finished Burda Fashion 7/2010 #113 out of the brown tie dye jersey last night and although it is not something I could wear to work, it will be perfect for those hot August nights. I'm gearing up for Self Stitched September. I may not be able to post pictures everyday, but I think I have enough me made garments to carry me through the month. How about you?
