I made a promise to myself, that I would sew more for "me" this year. I usually only blog about projects I make for my children, but I hope to step from behind the camera every now and again to share the projects I made for myself. The ladies behind Petit a Petit and Family and Welcome to the Mouse House have teamed up for the exciting color themed Sewing Series and Giveaway - Shades of Me. I chose BROWN. I love the color brown. Its one of my favorite colors to wear besides black or grey.
I sewed up Burda Style's Illusion Jacket in an upholstery fabric I snagged on sale. I love the shape of the jacket, and the illusion of separates it created. Midway through this project I totally freaked out when I realized my jacket was made from the same fabric as my mother in law's couch. To prevent it from looking like a walking armchair I decided to break up the fabric by adding faux alligator embossed sleeves. What a difference it made!
I hope you all are as inspired to sew more for yourselves as much as I am. Who else is looking forward to the Shades of Me, summer edition?
