I won a Giveaway!!

Over at Allison C's Sewing Gallery blog, she had a giveaway in January, and I won!! I really need work clothes, I have exactly one jacket in my wardrobe that fits. Allison makes a lot of jackets, and a lot of other things as well. She does a lot of pattern reviews and even shows adjustments she's made. She's a perfect model and the blog features good photographs (I'm sorry to say I sometimes fall short, especially with those projects that get completed in the wee hours of the morning).

Here's the pattern she generously sent me.

The jacket - semi fitted partially interfaced, lined, below hip jacket has collar, shoulder pads, welt, piping and longer than regular length, two-piece sleeves with fold back cuffs.

The pant - Straight legged lined pants have contour waist, side pockets and back zipper.

Jacket options

It will be my first Bill Blass pattern and I'm already thinking of the changes I'd like to make to the lines. I like the seaming detail on the front, but may make them symmetrical, now to pick a side.

Since it's for work, I'll keep it in a neutral palette, Navy always works for me, but the muslin version will be one of my mystery fiber fabrics.

muslin candidates

Stay tuned!
