The Vogue Paris original is just gorgeous, I love the jacket, I'm not sure what year it is. The Simplicity is 1977 and I love the sleeves and the shape and of course the rick rack around the edge. What's not to love about rick rack!. I was pretty happy with my find.
Unfortunately my sewing mojo seems to have disappeared. I have lost 2 very significant people in my life in the last few weeks. My teacher from primary school who became a friend and helped me to decide the path my life took and last night the father of a friend, who is also my parents best friend. I have known him all my life passed away. I just feel overwhelmed by my fabric and ideas and don't know where to start with sewing. I am hoping my mojo will return after Christmas.
Merry Christmas everyone and all the best for the new Year.
