I know you all think all Lori can make is jackets, right? Two of my three posts have been jackets for the Mood Sewing Network. Well, I am going to up the odds to three out of four. I do have a thing for jackets, especially in the spring, when a light jacket is just what you need for the cool, crisp air. This time I wanted a very versatile jacket, one you could wear with so many outfits. I also wanted to use a good color for spring, something to freshen up my closet and existing garments, so I picked this seafoam linen – which is very similar to the popular mint color.
First with a maxi-dress:
How about a gray knit maxi skirt and white v-neck t-shirt? I think yes.
Which was to be my outfit for dinner out with hubby on Saturday night, but dinner out turned into visiting our 5-week old grandson for two hours. I am sure my grandson thought Nana looked great! That was a great date night for me.
My seafoam linen is the perfect weight and drape for a spring to summer jacket, I love the color and the possibilities for my wardrobe. Plus, Simplicity 2250 is a great pattern. My favorite look is probably the maxi-skirt, followed by the white jeans, oh, wait maybe the striped t-shirt, but wait, I like the stripe dress, too. Oh, forget it, just like a favorite candy bar, I can’t pick just one. What about you, do you have a favorite?
