The credits said the jacket she has on is leather, but I am going to crochet my version. The crochet pattern for the Puff Sleeve Jacket I made a few months ago and posted on this blog would work perfect if worked up in all black. Joann's had a yellow denim fabric that had caught my eye sometime ago, but I had thought to myself what can I do with yellow fabric, so I left it in the store and when I decided to make this I bee lined it back to pick up two yards. I then went on the hunt for an easy pattern, something that my beginner sewing skills could accomplish and found the almost perfect one it was Butterick 5601.
I am going to alter the pattern a little bit by not including the over the shoulder portion, but it will do just fine. This will be my first dress I will see to completion, there have been two other false starts, what can I say I'm still new to sewing. I really want to wear this dress for my wedding anniversary at the end of the month, so I am excited. I have already started working on the dress and I can't wait to finish and post the pics for all to see.
Crafting Makes Me Happy!
