Winter wonderland

I know here in Sydney, Australia, we have a very mild winter and it doesn't last too long but it does feel chilly for a while. After the extended summer that we had , and the longing for cooler weather, it has arrived and of course my sewing is not done. Sydneysiders are renowned for believing winter doesn't exist but at the moment it's hard to deny.
So I need to sew some winter garments. My winter wardrobe has quite a few gaps. I need new basics, such as black tops, some ponti pants that feel like pj's but are actually suitable for work and generally some new clothes that are fun.
When I was in Melbourne I found this gorgeous ponti, from Tessuti's so my first project is this jacket.
I love this fabric. It is quite a subtle pattern. The jacket pattern is Butterick 6254. 
I will just need to make a few fitting adjustments. Then I will get it done.
Other patterns to make
                                                      A cosy top
                                                                 A nice dress

These are just a few of my ideas, so all I need to do is get started.
I have made a few things lately, I just don't have photos, so as soon as I get those I will post about the makes. That's the thing I find the hardest getting the photos done. Anyway

                                            Happy creating!
