Simplicity 2215 and my Inspirational Pic

It's all in how you put it together. I wish I could remember what designer did the dress on the second picture but nevertheless, the boots, the belt, and the tights give the outfit it's edge. I"ll be picking fabric real soon.

Vogue 8546-Finished

I apologize for the picture. Actually, none of my pictures seem to be the best my camera could take. I think I need to find out how to actually use my camera. Anyway, the belt is the first I have ever made and it is my own design. I think I need to look at some patterns to learn exactly what materials to use, but for my first belt I think it's ok. The fabric underneath the jacket is just wrapped around the dress form( I call her "Lilly").

Vogue 8546

I made this jacket last year in beige. But I realize now I would use a black one more often. The beige one I serged the seams but this one I am using a felled seam because the seams in the hood show on the outside. I think it will look alot better.

As you can see it's coming together. I put the bow on  there but my daughter advices no bow. I think I am coming to the age of dressing for me and not for others. So the bow will stay unless it just doesn't go with what I am wearing at the time.
