First I would like to thank all of my Blogging Buddies for the well wishes, prayers and kind thoughts. I am well past my kidney stone saga. I hope and pray that experience fade from my memory very, very soon. It has been sometime since I suffered through a kidney stone incident, so I thought it was well behind me. My doctors have assured me that if I do the things they have suggested I should be able to live kidney stone free, or for a long while anyway.
I needed to brighten up my life, and so I decided I needed a happy jacket, something light and bright to wear with almost anything. When I came across this pattern, I knew immediately that I wanted to make my happy jacket using this pattern. I live in Florida so not much need for anything much heavier on most days. We may dip into the 40’s every now and then, but that is far and few between.
I really like how it came out. I love the color, and of course I used my drug of choice, Ponte Roma Knit. Yummy to my tummy, this fabric is awesome. I didn’t line it, but chose to just serge and finish of the seams. I am quite pleased with the finish product. I hope you like it, and happy sewing.
