Doll Brown, step two

Every thing is cut out and marked, and I've started putting it all together.  Doesn't look like much yet.

Doll Brown

I can't believe I'm starting a new project so soon after Misery.  But then, Sis and I have an agreement that when this ensemble (jacket, skirt and blouse) is finished we are going to try out the new cocktail lounge at Nordstrom.  Now there's an incentive!

So a new jacket, using Marcy Tilton's Vogue 8620, which I made once before.  This time, however, I started by doing a double high round back alteration, something I should have done the first time.

The fabric is a heavy brown cotton with a narrow stripe, which I bought last month at Nancy's.

Striped Misery on Toast -- finished!

And I'm dead with Project Fatigue.  BTW, the stripes in picture look like they don't match.  Well, believe me they do.  And now would not be a good time to cross me.
