In a sewing mood!!!

Finally I am getting my sewing mojo back!!I have been working on this jacket off and on for two weeks.



My first time putting a lining in.


McCall"s 5480
Fabric: velveteen (color navy blue)
notions: two 1 1/2" buttons,interfacing
changes: I added an inch to the sleeves and the length.I wished I had added more on the sleeves.But it is done now, maybe next time.

I had no problems with making this jacket.This was a great pattern!I will be making this jacket again maybe in denim.


My teenager and I spent some mother and son time together today!!We went to an Eastern Michigan University football game.Boy it was cold out today for a football game.Some of them college student had on T-shirts and thats all no coat at all!!And those true football fans painted their chest green for the school colors!And they did not put a coat on or a shirt through the whole game!!All I could do was hope they didn't get sick later!!I am enjoying these times me spend together because you can't get these times back!!


Well that it for me!You all have a great weekend!!
