Blogs Make Me Sick...

It seems as though every time I blog about something I'm sick. So therefore my blog makes me sick... no? Anyways, at least I accomplish things when my blog makes me sick. In fact it seems like it's the only time I ever really finish anything. This time it was my jacket.



The pattern is called the Uptown Coat by Favorite things. When it came in the shop Corinnea and I were the first to grab them. I just now finished mine, and she just now finished her fourth one... she makes me feel real good about my small procrastination problem. But, anyways, here it is.



I used some charcoal colored corduroy for the outside, and the lining is my favorite print from the American Jane Recess line.



I finished it yesterday morning and have only taken it off to sleep ( put it back on as soon as I woke up), It's by far the most comfortable piece of clothing I own. Not only that, but this is the first piece of clothing I've ever finished! Motivated by this I decided to finish a blouse I had long put away... and let's just say that it will never ever see the light of day.... back to small steps.
