Me-Made Saturday in the Park

It’s cold and overcast for May, so I am getting more wear out of my me-made moto jacket from Simplicity 8174. I took the dog on a walk in the park this morning and tried to get a selfie of me in the jacket and the dog at the same time. I managed to not get a decent picture of either, but it’s cute anyway – part of my jacket and part of my dog’s tail.

I made the jacket from ultrasuede and lined it with silk charmeuse. Fancy lining, eh? It was salvaged and recut from a failed dress project. Never throw out failed projects!

I live in Connecticut, USA with my husband and my dog, in an old house outfitted with a sewing room, a garden, an orchard, and a big liquor cabinet.
