Do you ever have one of those days when things just don't go your way? I made plans to try to get Eva Mae to pose at this cute local coffee shop (they specialize in gluten free pastries!!! YUM!) but she was soooo uncooperative! LOL!
This jacket is just the cutest thing though! Unfortunately she's grown a lot since I first told Magda from House of Estrela that I would sew the jacket and test the pattern! The pattern calls for this adorable button tab closure but when I tried it on Eva Mae before attaching the tab the jacket was so tight. :( I even was careful with adding my seam allowances to the pattern before cutting out - the good thing is that I can add the tab and button and send the jacket to Eva Mae's cousin in Idaho to wear this fall!
Aren't the seam lines so sweet! I love the curved bodice and fit of the jacket!
And the pockets are adorable! I probably should have trimmed my ribbon a bit more but I loved the whimsy of a long ribbon!
If you are not a follower of Magda's blog House of Estrela be sure to click over and follow with Bloglovin' or other reader! She always has such cute posts and she just announced that she will be competing in a new online sewing challenge! I love competitions!!! This one is new to me so I'm excited to follow along!
