Recent creation

This is a recently completed dress and tailored jacket. Jacket is vogue 2165 DKNY, with bound buttonhole, jetted pockets, fully interfaced and lined, and hair canvas chest piece. The embellishment on the bodice of the dress was made from a digitised floral pattern on my janome 11000SE embroidery machine (lots of fun doing this one). I'm sure many of you will recognise the embroidered denim fabric.
As usual, I have made this 'out of season' so now need to wait for the cooler weather for its inaugural outing!
Now, on with the next project - a vintage vogue jacket and dress V1136 (original pattern was released in 1945). So many wonderful projects to tackle - so little time in one lifetime! (-:
