New spring jacket

Here is McCall's 5525. It still needs a good pressing.

I am still a bit jet-lagged from a 2-week trip to the States, and I was laying awake last night and decided to put the buttons and buttonholes on this jacket and finish it up. Probably not the best idea at 1:30 am, but I don't think I screwed anything up!

Here it is on me, with my photography assistant. Naptime is usually my photography time, but today, I needed to partake in naptime as well. Please excuse the 8-month pregnant belly. I can't tie the tie at the moment. Hopefully in a month or so, I will be able to!

I love this new jacket and am actually a bit happy for our chilly weather so I can wear it this week (without the belt, of course!).

The fabric is a kind of roughly-woven cotton from Sawyer Brook.

Great jacket. And such a cute photo! I admire your dedication - I would certainly have messed up sewing jet-lagged!
